Square Enix has announced its decision to delay Life Is Strange: Remastered Collection until “later this year” on Nintendo Switch.
“We have an update for you regarding the Life Is Strange: Remastered Collection,” the team writes. “The collection will still be hitting Google Stadia, PlayStation, Xbox and PC on February 1st as previously announced. We have a wealth of preview goodies for both titles planned before launch, starting with an extended look next Tuesday (25th).
“However, we are sorry to share that the Nintendo Switch versions of the games have been a little set back and will need a bit more time until they are ready, so will be releasing later this year. We hope you understand, and look forward to playing them. Thank you for your patience and support.”
The collection will bundle the BAFTA award-winning Life Is Strange Remastered and Life Is Strange: Before The Storm Remastered for the portable home console, which have each been “beautifully remastered with enhanced visuals and vastly improved animation using mocap technology.”
Life Is Strange: Before The Storm Remastered will also include the original game’s deluxe content, such as outfits, the Farewell episode and the Zombie Crypt outfit.
