'Life Is Strange: True Colors' Gets Nintendo Switch Release Date - Screens

Life Is Strange: True Colors is a new entry in the Life is Strange franchise featuring an all-new playable lead character, a new power and a thrilling mystery to solve!

In Life is Strange: True Colors players take on the role of Alex Chen, a young woman navigating early adulthood in Haven Springs, a mountain town where she connects with her long-lost brother and becomes a part of a tight-knit community – her brother having moved there in search for their long lost father. Amidst this backdrop, Alex struggles to accept a ‘curse” she’s dealt with all her life: having the psychic power of Empathy, a supernatural ability that allows her to experience, absorb and influence the strong emotions of others - which she sees as blazing, coloured auras.

When her brother dies in a suspicious accident, Alex must at last embrace her volatile power to find the truth, and uncover the dark secrets buried by a small town. Alex Chen's journey, power and future are all fully under the player's control. Alex Chen must use her psychic power of empathy to solve a mystery that will make her question everyone and everything she's come to know in the quaint small town of Haven Springs.

Brought to life through full performance capture by rising talent Erika Mori, players will navigate Haven Springs as Alex Chen, a young woman who has long suppressed her "curse": the psychic power of empathy, a supernatural ability that allows her to experience, absorb and influence the strong emotions of others — which she sees as blazing, colored auras.
