Life is Strange Arcadia Bay Collection will (finally) launch on Nintendo Switch next month

This is the first time that the two Life is Strange Remastered and Life is Strange: Before the Storm Remastered are available on the Nintendo Switch, Square Enix has confirmed that the previously delayed Life is Strange Arcadia Bay Collection will be available on the platform from September 27, 2022. Physical and digital pre-orders are now open through participating retailers and the Nintendo eShop.

This collection includes both Life is Strange Remastered and Life is Strange: Before the Storm Remastered, both featuring remastered visuals that have been “enhanced and optimized for switching between characters and environments”, as well as improved character animations. Originally developed for the latest generation consoles, life is strange was originally developed by Dontnod Entertainment, with the remastered collections being developed by Deck Nine Games.

For the first time on the Nintendo Switch, players will be able to experience these entirely story-driven experiences, using the powers of Max’s supernatural rewind ability and Chloe’s quick-witted attitude to change the course of events at Arcadia Bay.

First, I’d like to thank DON’TNOD for creating the incredible original Life is Strange, and thank Deck Nine Games for taking the emotional on-screen performance of these beloved characters to a new level in these new editions. Bringing these award-winning stories to the Nintendo Switch for the very first time was essential to us, as was the care the Deck Nine team took in their development. We’re excited to welcome a whole host of new players to these must-have games.
