Life is Strange is one of the few narrative-driven games in which your choice matters. Other than Telltale Games, Don’t Nod Entertainment is the only developer of note in this genre. Life Is Strange came out in 2015 and got a prequel two years later called Life Is Strange: Before The Storm. Both games were then compiled in 2021 and sold as the Life Is Strange: Remastered Collection. At the start of the year, the collection launched on all major platforms such as PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC, but the Switch version of Life is Strange: Remastered was unfortunately delayed.
The Switch version was delayed later in 2022 without a certain release date. Now Don’t Nod Entertainment and Square Enix have announced that the Life is Strange Remastered Collection will finally be launching on Nintendo Switch on September 27, with both physical and digital editions. Switch fans can now play both titles in the series with some improvements.
Life is Strange Remastered on the Switch
Nintendo released a new trailer for the collection and showed all the changes made for the Switch release. The name of the collection has been changed from Life is Strange: Remastered Collection to Life is Strange: Arcadia Bay Collection.
The visuals have been improved across both titles in the collection. The characters and environments have been optimized for the Switch. Not only that, Life is Strange: Arcadia Bay Collection will feature some new motion-captured facial performances.
The first game in the series received some criticism regarding the quality of the facial expressions, this change was likely made in response to that.
Even though fans had to wait much longer for the Life is Strange Remastered Collection on the Switch, it seems that the wait was worth it, considering the improvements. Life is Strange is a game about a girl that has the power to bend time to her will. During the game, you will use those powers to save the people of Arcadia Bay. If you enjoy story games on the go, this is a must-try.
