Now Playing: Life Is Strange Remastered Trailer | Square Enix Presents E3 2021

The Life is Strange Remastered Collection was originally set to launch on September 30. However, the game was then delayed to early 2022 due to difficulties in development, as well as alleviate pressure since the studio was also putting final touches on Life is Strange: True Colors.

In our Life is Strange: Before the Storm review, Justin Clark says, "It's rare that a prequel truly works, where a story can captivate despite the audience knowing what's coming and where the path will lead. Life Is Strange: Before The Storm is one of those exceptional stories because it draws you in on its own terms."

A Life is Strange TV show is also happening too, with Shawn Mendes overseeing the music for it. Andrew Gertler, Mendes' manager, will also help oversee the music as well. They are both partners over at their production company, Permanent Content.
