After a lengthy delay, Square Enix’s two-game Life is Strange remaster bundle finally has a release date on Switch, and will be launching on 27th September.
Square’s new Switch bundle – which goes by the name Life is Strange: Arcadia Bay Collection, rather than the Remastered Collection moniker used on other platforms – includes remastered versions of developer Don’t Nod’s much-loved original Life is Strange and its Deck-Nine-developed prequel Life is Strange: Before the Storm.
This new collection – which was originally due to launch on 1st February alongside other platforms before recieving a last-minute delay – retains the same acclaimed narrative core as the originals, following the supernaturally imbued adventures of teenage friends Max and Chloe, but promises a range of enhancements on Switch.
These include “improved and optimised” visuals for characters and environments across both included titles, while the first game will also feature new motion-captured facial performances.
Life is Strange: Arcadia Bay Collection will be available both digitally and physically when it release on 27th September and is priced at £34.99 on the Square Enix Store.
