Vita title directed by Deadly Premonitions designer

Lord of Apocalypse was announced shortly before TGS for the PS Vita and was quickly swamped by a wealth of other announcements at the show. But here’s a bit of news (via Siliconera) that should put it back on some fans’ radars; Deadly Premonition designer Hidetaka “Swery65” Suehiro has been announced as the game’s director.

Suehiro instantly made a name for himself with the insane Xbox 360 title which was both loved and hated by critics. Will his involvement in this PS Vita launch title (for Japan that is) have similar effects on the project?

We’ll have to wait until Vita’s eastern launch on December 17 to find out.
