After being a bit up in the air on if it’d be coming to Switch, Life is Strange: True Colors is now a game I’m doubly excited for. The idea of exploring empathy, both within its narrative and characters and visually through color, is one I’m on board with. I’m hardly the only one, though, as Square Enix has shared some new, commissioned art from none other than Ikumi Nakamura.

 

 

Nakamura, whose previous credits include Ōkami and Bayonetta, is currently freelancing after leaving Tango Gameworks and the very spooky  Ghostwire: Tokyo behind. That led to this gorgeous and color-changing piece centered on main character Alex Chen, who has the ability to read and perceive the emotions of others based on chromatic auras.

You’ll be able to explore her story for yourself when Life is Strange: True Colors comes to Nintendo Switch and more on September 10th. As for Nakamura, you can find her over on Twitter: @nakamura193.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
