However, you'll have to wait a fair bit longer if you're looking to pick up a physical version of True Colors for the Switch. The tweet from the official Life is Strange Twitter account reveals that the physical version of Deck Nine's game has been pushed back all the way to February 25, 2022, nearly three months after the initial Switch launch.

Life is Strange: True Colors originally launched for PC and console platforms back in September, welcoming series veterans back for a brand new adventure with a completely new protagonist and setting. Our full Life is Strange: True Colors review showered Deck Nine's adventure game with a 4.5/5 rating, describing it as a true showcase of what the next generation of the series can deliver.

It's not clear if the Switch version of True Colors will receive the Wavelengths DLC, which originally arrived a few weeks after the initial launch of the game on other platforms. This prequel DLC follows the tale of sidekick Steph, before the arrival of Alex Chen in Haven Springs, and Heather wrote that she couldn't stop thinking about how it brought Steph's story full circle in her impressions.
