What’s in the Arcadia Bay Collection?
The collection contains Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm.
These two narrative adventures both set in the small town of Arcadia Bay (hence the name of the collection) and are renowned for their emotional stories, unforgettable characters, impeccably curated soundtracks, and compelling choice-based gameplay.
Life is Strange
The original Life is Strange follows Max Caulfield, a promising young photo artist at the prestigious Blackwell Academy.
But Max doesn’t just have a gift with a camera - she also discovers she has the ability to rewind time. When her new powers lead to her to reconnect with former friend Chloe Price, Max begins a journey to discover herself - and the dark secrets lurking in the shadows of Arcadia Bay…
Life is Strange: Before the Storm
Set three years before the events of the original series, Life is Strange: Before the Storm puts you in control of a sixteen-year-old Chloe, who forms an unlikely friendship with the beautiful and popular Rachel Amber.
When Rachel learns a secret about her family that threatens to destroy her world, her friendship with Chloe gives her the strength to carry on. Together, the two girls must confront each other’s demons and find a way to overcome them.
The Life is Strange Arcadia Bay Collection includes all the DLC released for the game, including additional outfits and the bonus episode “Farewell”.
What improvements have been made to the games for Switch?
Life is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm are the best they’ve ever been on Nintendo Switch. This is no simple port - almost every aspect of the game has been optimized for the platform to deliver the best possible experience. It looks great, and more importantly feels great to play.
Both games have been greatly enhanced from their original release, with improved lighting, character models and more. Life is Strange has also been remastered with full facial motion capture, making these beloved characters more expressive and engaging than before.
In addition, all the bug fixes and enhancements added to the Life is Strange Remastered Collection since launch are all included in the Switch version as standard, making it the complete package in more ways than one!
It’s hella cool, as the inestimable Ms Price would say.
