Sea of Solitude: The Director’s Cut

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?

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.
