Life is Strange Arcadia Bay Collection to (Finally) Launch on Nintendo Switch Next Month

Marking the first time that both 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 starting 27 September 2022. Physical and digital pre-orders are now open via participating retailers and t he Nintendo eShop.

This collection includes both Life is Strange Remastered and Life is Strange: Before the Storm Remastered, both with remastered visuals which have been “improved and optimized for Switch across characters and environments”, along with improved character animations. Originally developed for last generation consoles, Life is Strange was originally developed by Dontnod Entertainment, with the remastered collections developed by Deck Nine Games.

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

Firstly I’d like to recognise DON’TNOD for creating the incredible original Life is Strange, and offer thanks to 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 for us, as was the care the Deck Nine team have shown during their development. We’re excited to welcome a whole host of new players to these must-play games.
