Life is Strange Remastered Collection Delayed On Switch; Other Platforms Unaffected & First Look Next Week

Square Enix has announced that the upcoming Life is Strange Remastered Collection has been delayed on Nintendo Switch to an unspecified date later into 2022. However, the package will still be releasing for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia platforms on February 1, 2022. Additionally, the development team shared that they have a “…wealth of preview goodies for both titles planned before launch, starting with an extended look next Tuesday!” [January 25]

You can view the tweet announcing this delay and further news below:

Life is Strange Remastered bundles up Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm with a few updated features to make it a “remastered” title. The absence of current-gen consoles is strange, but the games will be playable via backward compatibility.

Life is Strange Remastered includes quality-of-life enhancement such as remastered characters and environment visuals. Further, the game is running on a new engine, which allows the team to utilize better lighting and textures. The original game has also received a facelift with new fully motion-captured facial animation, and the sequel includes new outfits and a Farewell episode.

The collection tells the full story of Max and Chloe through some of the most significant parts of their lives. They suffer some rather intense situations, but the over-dramatized scenes make for a decent adventure experience that has gained many fans.
