Voice Actors


  • During the Figaro Gaming House Panel (February 2, 2016) interview, it was said that the Japanese voices are good.
  • Although the DLC language pack is only listed on the Steam Store accessed from Japan, you can still manually "register" it to download and use outside of Japan by executing the Steam protocol link "steam://install/425570", and the DLC will be added to your Life is Strange DLC list.
  • Some content of in-game objects (graffiti, paintings, etc.) were changed to avoid corresponding to prohibited expressions, that could lead to the straying of Japanese youngsters with more impressionable minds. (Google translated from Japanese)[4]
