During GDC the ex-Marvelous CEO and now founder of Toybox Games Yasuhiro Wada let slip that his new studio was working on a Deadly Premonition project for the PlayStation 3. Speaking to Joystiq, Wada clarified thst this was not the rumoured sequel that is supposedly in the works. Instead we now know that the original Deadly Premonition will be hitting Sony's console as a whole new remastered edition. The game's creator Swery65 is working in conjunction with the newly established Toybox Games to bring this new addition of this cult title to life. Deadly Premonition on the PS3 will feature PS Move capabilities and whole new scenarios to enjoy. We're promised more details at this years E3. Deadly Premonition was released back in 2010 as a budget title on the Xbox 360. Known as Red Seeds Profile in Japan, this was the only territory that saw it get a PS3 release. The game quickly achieved cult status and split reviewers upon release, receiving review scores ranging from 2 out of 10 all the way up to some sites awarding it with a perfect 10 out of 10. While technically inferior to a lot of games out there, it won audiences over with it's strange plot, interesting characters and surreal, wacky humour. The news of a PS3 release has already excited many with the prospect of PlayStation gamers finally being able to play this unique title, and those who already played it just wanting another excuse to play through it again.
