Who would have thought that Deadly Premonition 2 would be a thing 24 hours ago? Deadly Premonition 2! Nevertheless, the sequel that nobody saw coming was announced in last night's Nintendo Direct along with a port of the original game to the Switch, but it turns out that version isn't quite the definitive release.

As tweeted out by Ben Janca, video publisher at Gamespot, the version that hit the Switch eShop overnight is neither the original game nor the Director's Cut that came to PlayStation 3 back in 2013 - it's in a sort of limbo in-between the two.

Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut featured an extra scenario not found in the original, enhanced HD graphics, a reworked control system, and bonus content. We don't yet know what it is that Deadly Premonition Origins is missing, but if confirmed to be true, then it means that the PS3 version of the game is still the definitive version on consoles. We'll leave our friends over friends at Nintendo Life to work that one out. We're not entirely sure how the development team has managed that, though, because work must have been done on the port to take away features.
