LONDON, UK – 20 December 2017 – Rising Star Games announced today that Deadly Premonition: The Board Game will launch at selected retail stores across the USA and Europe on 31 January 2018. The board game will be made available as a new “Deluxe Edition”, featuring premium game-enhancing items such as the custom die, original soundtrack, and themed gaming cloth. Also included is a download key for the original cult hit PC videogame, upon which the board game is based.

“After the phenomenal Kickstarter campaign we have been working hard to transform our concept into a reality.” said Samuel Elphick, co-creator of Deadly Premonition: The Board Game. “This week we see our wonderful backers receiving their pledge rewards and we have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback. It is a delight to now announce that we will be making the board game available to even more Deadly Premonition fans who may have missed the opportunity first time around.”

“This new Deluxe edition of the board game is in honour of the campaign that made this project possible. It features some of our favourite items which make the board game special and capture that Deadly Premonition spirit. Whack on the soundtrack, lay the cloth upon the table and hold your breath when the Raincoat Killer claims suspects with the bespoke murder die. This is how we want the game to be played! Deadly Premonition: The Board Game Deluxe Edition will be available early next year to everyone.”
