Square Enix announced today that it is bringing its episodic adventure game Life is Strange to iOS. The first three episodes will come out on December 14, with the final two following during the first quarter of 2018.

Life is Strange came out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in 2015. It sold over 3 million copies and spawned a prequel series, Before the Storm, that released this year. Square Enix is also working on Life Is Strange 2.

“Follow the story of Max Caulfield, a photography senior who discovers she can rewind time while saving her best friend Chloe Price,” Square Enix detailed in a press release sent to GamesBeat. “The pair soon find themselves investigating the mysterious disappearance of fellow student Rachel Amber, uncovering a dark side to life in Arcadia Bay. Meanwhile, Max must quickly learn that changing the past can sometimes lead to a devastating future.”

The iOS version works with full touchscreen support. It also comes with iMessage Stickers and a new Photo Mode.
