Square Enix has announced that Life is Strange: True Colors will launch digitally on Nintendo Switch on December 7 2021, with the physical release coming on February 25 2022.
This edition of Life is Strange: True Colors was developed specifically for the Nintendo Switch. The Square Enix development team tried to create the best native experience by optimising visuals and performance. This meant they had to rework every character model, environmental object, and all foliage in the game. The team also rebuilt the lighting engine to suit the Nintendo platform as well.
“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,” said Jon Brooke, Co-Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios. “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.”
Life is Strange: True Colors will arrive digitally on the Nintendo Switch’s eShop on December 7, 2021. For hard copy fans, you will have to wait until February 25, 2022. The game is already available to purchase on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam.
