Last year, LKA and Wired Productions released The Town of Light, a thought-provoking psychological horror adventure game, on PS4 and Xbox One following its release on PC in 2016. Today, the game’s developers announced that the Nintendo Switch will be added to that console lineup when The Town of Light: Deluxe Edition releases later this Spring.
The Town of Light: Deluxe Edition will be available both physically and digitally, but is exclusive to Nintendo Switch. This Deluxe Edition is poised to include everything from the console game, but will set itself apart from the other versions by also including a “collection of documentary content.” According to the developers, this content will allow players to learn more about Volterra and its patients, which are the focus of the game.
Leo Zullo, Managing Director at Wired Productions had the following to say about expanding The Town of Light’s audience by releasing on Nintendo Switch:
“We’ve been overwhelmed by the support The Town of Light has received around the world. We are delighted to continue our journey with LKA and to bring The Town of Light, a game which has provoked valuable discussion around its subject matter, to an even greater audience.”
Meanwhile, Luca Dalcò, Studio Head at LKA, also commented on releasing The Town of Light: Deluxe Edition and working with Wired Productions:
“We created The Town of Light to talk about mental health. Bringing the game once again to an all new format allows us to continue that mission. Our relationship with Wired continues to go from strength to strength.”
