Introduced at this year’s The Game Awards as a surprise announcement, Sea of Solitude will finally let Nintendo Switch owners chart the gorgeous yet foreboding waters via Sea of Solitude: The Director’s Cut. 

Thanks to a new partnership with Jo-Mei and Quantic Dream, Sea of Solitude: The Director’s Cut will be made exclusively for Nintendo Switch and adding more features to Kay’s story as she grapples with her new, monster-esque form while trying to find serenity and peace. 



Sea of Solitude: The Director’s Cut is an improved version of the original experience offered by Jo-Mei in 2019, with a set of new features and enhancements designed specifically for the Nintendo Switch™. The dialogue has been rewritten with the help of award-winning author Stephen Bell and a new cast of actors have re-recorded all the game’s dialogue to provide a fully dubbed experience in French, English, Spanish, Japanese and German*. (*The game is also available with subtitles in the following languages: Russian, Korean, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Portuguese, Latin American Spanish, Dutch and Italian.)”


The game will also have “a new photo mode with the ability to change the climate, as well as the integration of the gyroscope functionality of the Nintendo Switch to control Kay’s flare.” 

Sea of Solitude: The Director’s Cut will be available on Thursday, March 4th, 2021, on the Nintendo eShop for $19.99. A free demo of the game will also be available on the very same day. For those who’d rather have a physical copy, Quantic Dream is selling a limited edition run for €29.99 on their online store (the game also comes with an exclusive sticker).
