Last month, Square Enix announced delays for the Life is Strange: Remastered Collection and, therefore, the Switch version of Life is Strange: True Colors. While other versions of Life is Strange: True Colors managed to satisfy their September 10th release date, it’s like developer Deck Nine needed longer on both the Switch version and, therefore, the Remastered Collection. Today, we got a replacement release date for the Life is Strange: Remastered Collection, but fans will be waiting a short time.
That’s because Square Enix announced a replacement release date of February 1st, 2022 for all times is Strange: Remastered Collection. Originally, the gathering was set to launch just a couple of weeks after Life is Strange: True Colors, as Deck Nine and Square Enix initially gave it a release date of September 30th.
While this isn’t the longest delay, it’s never fun to count delays in months rather than weeks. Life is Strange: Remastered Collection packs remastered versions of the primary two games within the franchise – Life is Strange, and its prequel Life is Strange: Before the Storm – into one compilation. While both of these games are still relatively recent, the remastered visuals and updated engine should bring both titles in line with the newer Life is Strange games.
Life is Strange: Remastered Collection is included as a bonus to anyone who purchases the Life is Strange: True Colors Ultimate Edition. However, it seems that the gathering also will be available as a standalone purchase when it launches in February.
We’re also still waiting on Square Enix to announce the new release date for the Switch version of Life is Strange: True Colors, which was delayed beyond its September 10th release date at an equivalent time Life is Strange: Remastered Collection was pushed back. We’ll keep an ear to the bottom for more thereon front, so stay tuned.
