Square Enix has confirmed a multi-month delay to Life is Strange: Remastered Collection for Nintendo Switch. The collection, which includes the first installment of the saga and Before the Storm —both in their remastered versions—, is scheduled for February 1st on all platforms; however, Nintendo’s hybrid console will have to wait a little longer. Of course, it will be released sometime in 2022.

However, there is bad news: “We are sorry to share that the Nintendo Switch versions have been delayed a bit and will need a little more time until they are ready, so they will be released later this year,” they stress. They apologize and thank you above all for your patience.
