Deadly Prenomination 2 Storyline
For fan of the previous title, we are indeed pleased to announce that the upcoming deadly premonition 2 will be a game that encompasses all. It’s a blessing in diguise afterall and despite the time that has passed, the game will try to retain the world and characters we know while adapting to and interlocking with today’s era.
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise kicks off in the small town of Le Carré. The gameplay begins in Boston where Special FBI Agent Francis York Morgan revisits the case he thought was solved in 2005. With you in control, you’ll be tasked to solve various murders and crimes while going back and forth between 2005 and 2019. Below is the game’s full and detailed description as seen on Nintendo Japanese blog
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise storyline is set nine years after the original game, this sequel actually takes on the form of a “pre-sequel” as players will jump into the memories of 2005 as told by the protagonist to relive the “incident five years before the Greenvale incident of the previous game.” As young FBI investigator Francis York Morgan, players will visit the peaceful rural town of Le Carre, New Orleans to investigate a strange serial murders case.
The game features two heroines. Alija Davis is a young and passionate FBI investigator who interrogates the protagonist in 2019, while Patricia is a 10 year-old girl and daughter of the police sheriff in the world of 2005. A mature girl, she plays the role of Watson and follows York around the open world. As it would turn out, the 2005 case that was seemingly resolved will gradually drag the 2019 protagonist and two heroines into madness.
The 2019 part of the story begins in Boston. In these parts, the player takes on the role of a young female FBI agent named Aliya who’s tasked with interrogating a “former” gifted FBI investigator shrouded in mysterious veil. During the questioning, you do need to break through the man’s heart and acquire key statements by showing evidence and making observations about things in his room.
If the interrogation turns out successful, the story will shift to 2005 in New Orleans. There, the former savvy FBI agent will become “York”, a man involved in the serial murder that took place in his town and with his memory, he sets out to solve the case again. 2005 will actually be the main system of the game, it’d be an action adventure part set in an open world. Simply run around the 4km American country town of Le Carre while solving the legendary “Le Carre serial murder” case that has cost the lives of so many victims.
