Deadly Premonition is notoriously divisive, seen by some as a hugely wonky and strange mess but by others as a hugely wonky and strange wonder. While it hit both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in Japan, only the Xbox version was released globally in 2010. Fortunately, that’s about to change, and PlayStation 3 owners will be treated to a remastered edition of Access Games’ Twin Peaks-inspired survival horror.

“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,” Deadly Premonition executive producer Yasuhiro Wada said in a GDC presentation attended by Gamasutra.

1up’s Bob Mackey caught up with Wada, who told him that it’d be “an enhanced PS3 remake (with new content), not a sequel.” Initial inaccurate reports out of GDC had said it’d be a sequel. Wada also told Joystiq that it’d pack PlayStation Move support.

Deadly Premonition designer Hidetaka ‘SWERY’ Suehiro mentioned the possibility of a revamp last year, telling Metro it was “just an example,” but, “we might create a version that is like a director’s cut with a higher quality of graphics so that it would appeal to a wider audience.” SWERY has also spoken of hopes for both a sequel and prequel, though.

Wada mentioned in the GDC presentation that his new company Toybox was working with SWERY on a new game, teasing that it might walk a similar path to Deadly Premonition and could also be revealed at E3.

Now, while I could embed an official Deadly Premonition trailer here to show you the game, this cutscene captured by Youtube user ‘pothocket’ shows far, far better what makes it such a treat:
