Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise from Rising Star Games arrived on Friday for Nintendo Switch. The followup to Deadly Premonition was revealed a while ago alongside a port of the original game in the form of Deadly Premonition Origins for Nintendo Switch. A lot of footage of Deadly Premonition 2 and early reports had a lot of frame rate and stability issues highlighted. According to a detailed report from video game tech analysis site Digital Foundry, we have the confirmed resolution and frame rate for Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise on Nintendo Switch.
The game runs at an unlocked frame rate. Open world segments run at around 15 fps with dips going lower. Digital Foundry also says that Deadly Premonition 2 is not only worse than the original on Xbox 360 in performance but it also worse than the poor ports of Deadly Premonition for other systems. Watch the full analysis below:
Deadly Premonition 2 runs at 810p docked. The game has bad load times as well. The game definitely seems like it was not ready to be released with drops to under 5 fps in the open world and freezing issues. Rising Star Games has committed to releasing a patch but the extent to what gets fixed remains to be seen.
Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise is now available on Nintendo Switch.
