Deadly Premonition director, Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro, has announced a new game from his studio White Owl, in association with Dragon Ball FighterZ studio Arc System Works. The Missing is scheduled for release later this year, and will “blow your mind.”
“The title ‘The Missing’ has many different meanings,” says Swery. “A missing person, someone who’s lost, or even something lost. Maybe it’s your loved one… or a place you belong. Do you ever feel lost in your everyday life? The Missing is for someone like you.”
The Missing will be the first game White Owl has produced in-house, following a failed crowdfunding campaign for his RPG The Good Life, which was announced last year, set in an English town where all of the residents become cats at night.
“Arc System Works has given me an opportunity to create something entirely new,” he said. Although he couldn’t reveal the details, Swery commented on the creative freedom the publisher has allowed him.
“Frankly, this title will blow your mind,” he added. “I think it’s sick.”
