Life is Strange: True Colors delayed on Switch, Remastered Collection delayed to early 2022

Life is Strange: True Colors switch release delayed Nintendo Switch Remastered Collection delay early 2022 Square Enix Dontnod Deck Nine Games

There is good news, bad news, and more bad news for Life is Strange. The good news is that Life is Strange: True Colors will receive DLC called Wavelengths starring Steph Gingrich that will arrive on at least most of its platforms on September 30. Part one of the bad news is that Square Enix and Deck Nine Games have delayed specifically the Nintendo Switch version of Life is Strange: True Colors to later this year. The other bad news is that Life is Strange: Remastered Collection has been delayed to early 2022 on all platforms in order to give the development team more time to complete True Colors in a less stressful manner. So the bottom line is your life is going to be staying pretty normal as a Switch owner for a while.

Prior to the delay, Life is Strange: True Colors was supposed to launch on September 10 on Nintendo Switch, the same as its release date on its other platforms, including PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, and Stadia. Now, it will just release sometime this year. The game is about protagonist Alex Chen using her empathetic psychic powers to “experience, absorb, and manipulate the strong emotions of others” in Haven Springs. Meanwhile, Life is Strange: Remastered Collection is about lots of things, and if you’re desperate to play those games this instant, you can always just buy the old versions on another platform.
