Disco Elysium: The final cut, the definitive edition of the award-winning RPG, is finally coming to Nintendo Switch next month.
This is not a port of the game as it has been “reassembled” for the Switch console. With this edition of the game, you can expect a redesigned user interface, font scaling options, improved readability across the board, and all of the quality of life improvements from previous iterations.
In case you are not familiar with this, you play as a detective in the game with a unique skill system. They will interrogate characters, deal with murders, or take bribes.
Here are just a few of the features you can expect from the Enhanced Edition:
- New political vision quests: Face the reality of your worldview as your political compass guides you on new paths. Discover more citizens, a whole additional area, and monumental landmarks as you shape the world even more by chasing your dreams.
- Full speech output: All the beautiful people in the city come to life with full voice-over. Play characters against each other, try to help them, or fall hopelessly in love as each word is spoken to you with the appropriate accent and emotion.
- Improved playability: Full controller support and customization, you can play with your preferred setup. Enjoy an expanded range of language options.
- Real role play: Customize your character with completely different skills, clothes and tools – from weapons to a flashlight to a boombox. Develop new ideas in the detective’s mind cabinet to change the way you approach and deal with any situation.
- Unparalleled freedom: Death, sex, taxes and disco – nothing is off the table in this open world. Solve a massive murder investigation or relax with sprawling side cases. You can do almost anything with Disco Elysium’s revolutionary dialogue system.
The game will be available as a digital download on October 12th and is available to pre-order now for $ 39.99 or your regional equivalent.
The developers ZA / UM and iam8bit will release a Collector’s Edition of the game in early 2022, which can also be pre-ordered. It will cost you $ 249.99 and includes the following:
- Innovative premium box “Layers of the Id”.
- Hand-painted ‘Mid Totem’ vinyl sculpture.
- Over 190 pages bound art book with tons of previously unpublished works of art and stories.
