In December 2015, Square Enix released a video that showed the first twenty minutes of footage from Episode 1: Chrysalis in Japanese.

It has already been confirmed that Japanese actors Kumi Tanaka and Lynn have been cast for the roles of Life Is Strange heroine Maxine Caulfield and sidekick Chloe Price respectively.

Life Is Strange, which was initially a digital-only title, received a retail release last month in North America and Europe. Life Is Strange Limited Edition, which was announced near the end of 2015, is bundled with a 32-page art book, a disc-based version of Life Is Strange, director’s commentary and the official soundtrack.

In other Life Is Strange news, the voice actor for Max in the English version of the episodic title, Hannah Telle, recently said that she would be open to reprising the role of the heroine in a potential sequel.

With over one million copies sold worldwide, Life Is Strange will launch in Japan on March 3 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Hardcore Gamer’s review for the whole of Life Is Strange recognized Dontnod Entertainment’s wise choice in using an episodic format for the title, resulting in a “near-perfect experience” for the player.
