True horror comes not from grotesque imagery and brutal action, but from our own minds. What we imagine is a hundred times scarier than anything we can be confronted with on a screen, which is a concept older franchises like Silent Hill well understood. And while Deadly Premonition definitely had its fair share of action when it launched on the Xbox 360 back in 2010, its terrifying theme and premise was catnip to those who love a good scare. Now, its exclusivity is being reversed, as the reworked Director’s Cut is coming to the PS3 on April 30.

Game director Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro says this new edition will boast a revamped control mechanic along with improved combat, which is good news. Critics had a problem with the outdated visuals and control scheme in the original title, and all of that should be upgraded in this new iteration. Featuring a “complete graphic overhaul with new high-definition textures,” a whole new scenario, and extra downloadable content, Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut will almost undoubtedly be the best version of the creepy adventure. Those who enjoy being weirded out should definitely apply.
