Amongst the many indie titles lined up for release on the Nintendo Switch, Life is Strange: True Colors was one of the most anticipated games of the summer for many gamers. However, with the announcement of a release delay for the Nintendo Switch version, Switch players will have to wait a bit longer to get their hands on the latest installment of this cult-hit series.
Announced for all consoles on March 18 with the subsequent announcement for the Nintendo Switch on June 15, True Colors is the latest entry in the Life is Strange series featuring a brand new protagonist with a brand new power. It originally had a slated September 10 release date on all consoles.
The news came via a Twitter post made on the official Life Is Strange Twitter account on August 12, stating that the game will no longer meet its intended release. In addition to the withdrawal of the original release date, the tweet also noted that the new release date has not been decided as the game is “running a little late,” but players can still be assured that the game will still launch sometime in 2021.
For those that purchased the Ultimate Edition of Life is Strange: True Colors, initially planned to include the upcoming remasters of the first two installments in the series, they will still be entitled to their copies of the games. Despite the subsequent delay of the remastered titles, players who are entitled these games can count on their release in early 2022.
Life is Strange: True Colors is still slated for a 2021 release, with a new release date being announced “over the coming weeks.”
