Life Is Strange Arrives Next Month for Android, Exclusive Controller Support Confirmed

The critically acclaimed Life Is Strange is set to arrive on Android devices next month, Square Enix today confirmed.

Dontnod Entertainment’s episodic adventure title has now been listed on Google Play, with Android users able to pre-register the title in order to be notified of its official release on the platform.

According to Square Enix, the Life Is Strange port will include exclusive controller support for Android devices.

Life Is Strange’s mobile port was announced back in 2017, which first launched on iOS with Episode 1: Chrysalis, Episode 2: Out of Time and Episode 3: Chaos Theory. The two remaining episodes — Episode 4: Dark Room and Episode 5: Polarized — came to iOS in March.

Unlike its iOS counterpart, all five episodes of Life Is Strange will be made available in the same month for Android users.

Life Is Strange is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, macOS, Linux, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Hardcore Gamer’s review of the iOS port commended Square Enix’s work in bringing Life Is Strange to the handheld market.

“The iOS version, which excels in several different aspects, has allowed the publisher to tap into a market that Life Is Strange thrives on, with it holding its own against the console and PC version,” reads an extract from our review. “Furthermore, Square Enix could — and should — follow a similar style to Telltale Games with getting episodic titles on iOS and Android devices straight away.”
