Square Enix on bringing Life is Strange: True Colors to Switch
It took a bit longer than expected, but Life is Strange: True Colors will initially begin to appear on Switch next month. Square Enix has now shared a little bit of insight into bringing the game to the console.
The company says that Life is Strange: True Colors for Switch “was developed specifically for the Nintendo platform.” The team was “committed to creating the best possible native experience by optimizing visuals and performance.” Square Enix added that there were “many technical changes to the game which included reworking every character model, environmental object, and all foliage across the game, as well as completely rebuilding the lighting engine.”
Jon Brooke, co-head of studio at Square Enix External Studios, also said:
“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. 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 optimization 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 is initially hitting Switch as a digital download on December 7. We’ll then be seeing the physical version on February 25, 2022.
