Square Enix has announced that Life is Strange: True Colors will launch digitally for Nintendo Switch on December 7 2021.
The digital release marks the franchise’s debut on Nintendo Switch and will be followed by a physical retail edition on February 25, 2022.
According to Square Enix’s press release, the Nintendo Switch version of Life is Strange: True Colors was quite an undertaking:
“The development team were committed to creating the best possible native experience by optimizing visuals and performance. This involved many technical changes to the game, which included reworking every character model, environmental object, and all foliage across the game, as well as completely rebuilding the lighting engine.”
Speaking about Switch edition, Jon Brooke, Co-Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios, says:
“We’re incredibly excited to finally offer a Life is Strange experience on the Nintendo Switch, enabling players to enjoy Life is Strange: True Colors at home or on the go. This is the most advanced game in the series, so it was important for us to maintain a high standard of visual quality, performance and optimisation when bringing the game to a new platform. We’re delighted with how the Switch version turned out, and we can’t wait to expand our wonderful community of players even more with this release.”
The game also gets thumbs up from the Thumbsticks team. In our review, we called it “a wonderful evolution of the series.”.
It also has a rather stunning licenced soundtrack that we have detailed for your informational pleasure.
Life is Strange: True Colors is already available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC Steam, and Google Stadia.
