Suehiro, better known among Japanese fans as Swery65, has announced his next
role as director of an upcoming action RPG for the PSP and PlayStation Vita.
Swery65's best-known work, of course, is as the designer of cult survival
horror thriller Deadly Premonition. Where do you go from that title's
schizophrenia, mutilation and American Gothic horror? Something called Lord of
Apocalypse sounds appropriate enough – here's the Japanese announce trailer.
The title, published by
Square Enix, is a sequel to PSP ARPG Lord of Arcana. If Apocalypse is in the
same vein as its predecessor, it'll be a rather more conventional affair than
Premonition – but with Swery65 having recentlyteased fans with his ideas for continuing Premonition's story, don't think Lord of Apocalypse
marks the designer's full-time return to the comprehensible or mundane. Lord of
Apocalypse is scheduled as a Japanese release title for the PS Vita, though no
Western date's been set yet.
