Soapbox: Life Is Unusual Belongs On Change. So Why Is not It?


Sq. Enix/Deck 9

The Sq. Enix Direct Presents stream went up only a few hours in the past, and regardless of realizing that we would be left disillusioned, a couple of of us at Nintendo Life tuned in, hoping to listen to about video games coming to Change. Balan Wonderworld was featured, however we already knew about that, and the one different Change recreation was Bubble Bobble four Pals, which got here out on the console in 2019, however is lastly being launched on the PC, too.

All in all, a little bit of a let-down for us Nintendo youngsters, however… properly, we already knew it might be. You possibly can’t at all times get what you need, as The Rolling Stones would say. However of all of the omissions, we discover ourselves asking as soon as extra: Why is not Life Is Unusual on the Nintendo Change?

There hasn’t been a lot information on that entrance since DONTNOD, the French studio that made Life is Unusual 1 and a couple of (however not the prequel Earlier than the Storm, and never the brand new recreation, Life Is Unusual: True Colours), instructed GameSpot in 2019 that they’d “like to see Life is Unusual and Life is Unusual 2 on this console,” however that it was Sq. Enix’s resolution to make. Now that US studio Deck 9 holds the reins to the sequence, it is even much less clear what’ll occur.

Life Is Strange

Nevertheless, on the finish of final month, a poster on online game discussion board ResetEra leaked a bunch of data on the video games that has turned out to be true, following right this moment’s presentation from Sq. Enix. They knew the title, they usually recognized the Asian-American lead appropriately, in addition to the primary mechanic of the sport – so it is protected to say they acquired their data from a great supply.

Concerning Change variations, the leaker – identified solely as “Bing” – had the next to say:

“Life is Unusual 1 is being ported to the Change. I am undecided if the second and BtS can be ported as properly, however I might think about that they’d be doing that. The ports needs to be introduced each time LiS three is introduced.”

However that is not turned out to be true up to now, sadly. In all probability, they are most likely engaged on it – however resulting from COVID, maybe it’s going to take just a little longer. There’s even an opportunity that they will announce it shortly after I publish this text, and I should eat my hat.
