LIFE IS STRANGE

Dontnod Entertainment’s emotional adventure series Life is Strange is getting a live-action digital series courtesy of Legendary Digital Studios and dj2 Entertainment. The news was announced on the Life is Strange Tumblr and it seems that it will be following a television-like format.

Cory Lanier will be working with Legendary senior VP of development of production Greg Siegel for the series, which the latter noted “is one of those rare properties that combines incredibly developed characters and storylines with deeply engaging gameplay. It lends itself perfectly to live-action imaginings. We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Square Enix, Dontnod Entertainment and dj2 to bring the world of Arcadia Bay to life in an exciting new way.”

Jon Brooke, VP Brand and European Marketing at Square Enix, said that, “We’re proud and excited to be working alongside Legendary to realise a new version of Arcadia Bay and Blackwell Academy complete with our rich cast of realistic, believable characters and memorable events.

“Now that the first episode of the Life is Strange game is free to download on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC, there’s never been a better time to play or to introduce a friend to the beautiful world of Arcadia Bay.”

A writer and director for the project has yet to be chosen but Legendary noted that character roles would be filled out soon. What are your thoughts on the news? Let us know in the comments.
