Now you can change history on the go.
Life is Strange Before the Storm

Nintendo Switch owners can now play through both the original Life is Strange game and its prequel, Life is Strange: Before the Storm. This is thanks to today's release of Life is Strange Arcadia Bay Collection, which is available now for $39.99 (USD).

Today's release on Switch is the remastered version for both titles. It has some updated visuals and upgraded animations. It's also been "optimized specifically for the Nintendo Switch," so hopefully the framerates aren't trash.

If you don't know about either of these titles, feel free to keep on reading below. If you're already sold on picking up this collection, you can do so right now through the Square Enix Store or Nintendo eShop.
