Quantic Dream

Quantic Dream has long been known as a PlayStation developer. Now, however, the company has started to venture out on its own. After making well-known narrative games like Heavy Rain, Quantic Dream has started to self-publish, and is even working with other developers as well.

As far as why Quantic Dream is now starting to explore self-publishing, head of publishing Guillaume de Fondaumière recently told Nintendo Everything:

Good things come to those who wait, and that’s exactly what has transpired with Sea of Solitude. Although Switch missed out on the game originally back in 2019, the platform recently received the best version of the game yet. The new Director’s Cut implements some new additions, lots of improvements, and a fair share of adjustments.

Nintendo Everything recently had the opportunity to speak with Sea of Solitude: The Director’s Cut Cornelia Geppert. We spoke about the project’s origins and how it ended up on Switch, whether a sequel could happen in the future, and more.

YouTuber ElAnalistaDeBits has put together a video that compares Sea of Solitude on PC up against the new Switch version. Check it out below.

As a reminder, the Switch version received an exclusive “The Director’s Cut” version of Sea of Solitude. Aside from a customizable photo mode, gyroscope integration, rewritten script, and new cast of voice actors, it also features augmented cut scenes and animations.

System: Switch
Release date: March 4, 2021
Developer: Jo-Mei
Publisher: Quantic Dream

After making only the faintest of splashes in its initial release on other consoles in 2019, the emotional indie game Sea of Solitude has returned on Switch. However, bearing the familiar “Director’s Cut” subtitle that can be found on so many other Switch ports, this re-release promises to add new features like rewritten scenes, additional voice acting, and refined mechanics to the base game. Whether this will be your first time setting sail or you’ve already voyaged with the game, the question remains: does Sea of Solitude’s Director’s Cut make waves in its Switch debut, or is it best left stranded at sea?

Quantic Dream and Jo-Mei have readied a launch trailer for Sea of Solitude: The Director’s Cut. Get a look at the new video below.

Alongside the release of Sea of Solitude: The Director’s Cut, the game has received a new demo on the Switch eShop. Get a look at some footage below.

Sea of Solitude: The Director’s Cut is due out for Switch on March 4.

Sea of Solitude: The Director’s Cut was announced for Switch at the end of last year. Quantic Dream confirmed it would distribute a physical version in Europe, but it looked like fans in North America were essentially locked into a digital-only option. Thankfully, that’s no longer the case.

Limited Run Games has announced that it will offer its own physical release of Sea of Solitude: The Director’s Cut for fans in the states. You’ll be able to pick up a copy tomorrow, March 2.

Limited Run Games will have pre-orders here at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM in the UK / 6 PM in Europe.


Quantic Dream and Jo-Mei have shared new details on Sea of Solitude: The Director’s Cut.

First up, a physical version has been announced for Europe. Copies will include the game on a cartridge as well as a special sticker. Unfortunately, the North American announcement indicates that it will be digital-only in the states.

One thing that will be happening in both territories is a demo. Players will be able to try out Sea of Solitude: The Director’s Cut at launch on March 4, 2021.
