Square-Enix has announced the Life is Strange: Remastered Collection is mostly still on track to launch at the beginning of next month, but the Nintendo Switch version won’t be released alongside all the other platforms.
The news came through a post on the series’ social channels, which both announced the Switch delay, as well as an extended look at the Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm remasters for Tuesday, January 25. No new date or window has been given for the Switch remasters yet.
The full message reads as follows:
Hello, Life is Strange fans!
We have an update for you regarding the Life is Strange: Remastered Collection.
The collection will still be hitting Google Stadia, PlayStation, Xbox and PC on February 1st as previously announced. We have a wealth of preview goodies for both titles planned before launch, starting with an extended look next Tuesday! (25th)
However, we are sorry to share that the Nintendo Switch versions of the games have been a little set back and will need a bit more time until they are ready, so will be releasing later this year.
We hope you understand, and look forward to playing them.
Thank you for your patience and support.

When the Remastered Collection comes to Switch, it will be the series’ second foray into Nintendo’s handheld/console hybrid. Life is Strange: True Colors came to the system last year. The Switch version of that game also came out a little bit later than other systems, launching in December, rather than September. For more on that game, be sure to check out Fanbyte’s review.
