Deadly Premonition has a reputation of being “so bad, it’s good”. Weird gameplay mechanics, a bizarre cast of characters and performance that has always left a lot to be desired certainly made this a niche, cult classic sort of game. Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessig In Disguise launched recently on the Nintendo Switch and one of the many glaring issues that plagued its release was it’s framerate. Abysmal would be an understatement.
Thankfully the games director was aware of this issue (despite launching it in quite the state anyway…) and stated he intended to sort them out. Publisher Rising Star games also confirmed the team was working hard on patches to improve the games performance.
Fans of the series can rejoice as that patch (version 1.0.3) has dropped and has made some progress towards fixing the issues. It even adds an inverted camera option to make the announcement that much better.
Enjoy this before and after comparison by Nintendo Life’s Gavin Lane:
Needless to say, this is a massive improvement over the 2-4fps that was present in the initial release.
Is this enough to get back into Deadly Premonition 2? Let me know in the comments below.
