The Harvest Moon post-mortem with Yasuhiro Wada just ended, and he kind of dropped a bombshell. I don't the exact quotes, because English translation was coming through a headset, and I didn't fully know what I was hearing until I heard it, but Wada said two things: that Sweary was working on "new chapters" of Deadly Premonition, and that while the PS3 version wasn't released in the West, a PS3 version WOULD be coming from Marvelous, and more may be announced at E3.

So... yeah.

Edit: I have the original Japanese audio recorded, but by the chance I'd have to get into listening to it to check it out, others will probably have said more.

GDC 2012: Deadly Premonition follow-up, enhanced version teased
In his GDC presentation on the Harvest Moon series, Deadly Premonition executive producer Yasuhiro Wada teased two new possible installments of the series in collaboration with its director, Swery.

While Wada spent the bulk of his talk reviewing the 16 year history of the farming franchise he created, he touched, on the end, on his future plans with his new company Toybox.

While working at Deadly Premonition's Japanese publisher, Marvelous Entertainment, Wada was the executive producer of the Xbox 360 cult hit. The game was developed by the Osaka-based Access Games and directed by Hidetaka "Swery" Suehiro.

The original game came out on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Japan, but, "We faced some challenges... We weren't able to release the full experience" that was intended, he said. Because of this, the game "was not released on the PS3 in the West."

Despite its weaknesses, he recognizes that the game has "developed a cult following."

He said he hopes to announce that this will change -- hinting at a new, enhanced version of the original game. "We're working on a PS3 release. We still have a few hurdles to overcome, but hopefully we'll be able to show you something at E3," said Wada.

He also said that at his new company, Toybox, he is working with Swery on a new title, and hopes to have news about that at E3, too. He strongly hinted that it would follow in the footsteps of Deadly Premonition without saying anything outright.

I watched the GB endurance thing for Deadly Premonition (all of them) so I don't really have any interest in playing it, but I'd propably buy a ps3 copy just to support that crazy Swery guy.

Didn't Swery say he wanted to re-release the game with extra content awhile back?

Just talked to Wada - it's going to be a director's cut of the original for PS3, at least in the west. Not sure if an Xbox 360 will or won't be coming.

DP 1 end-game spoilers:

I wonder what direction they will take the story in. Since York is gone, the game will probably lose some if it's charm. Could it be just another crazy case, this time starring Zach? In that case, the very boxart or just seeing footage of DP2 would probably spoil the first game.

On another note, FUCK YES.

Roll on E3, I played through the JP PS3 version and would absolutely love a chance to play it in English - extra content is the icing on the cake.

Since this isn't DP2 (yet) then we don't know.

But I do remember something from after DP's release where SWERY said a sequel might just be a completely different plot, but with the same "characters" in it.

Wonderful. I don't have a 360 and the import price was too high so I never got to play it.

I would pick this up if it's the same price as the 360 one launched at to see what all the talk was about.
Not normally into horrors, but I've heard enough great impressions about the story and characters to put up with the scary stuff.

I would assume so, or maybe 30 dollars to account for the extra content.

It has a fun wacky story and interesting character. Also, one of the most non-sexualized, normal female characters in a game.
