Thekla, Inc. has officially launched Braid, Anniversary Edition for Switch. Originally released in 2008 by Jonathan Blow, Braid, Anniversary Edition reimagines the iconic, award-winning puzzle platformer for modern hardware with fully repainted high-resolution graphics, new sound effects, 40 new levels, extensive developer commentary and more.

Wondering just how this remaster Braid stands up to the original? We know the visuals will be different and improved, but just how big of a difference is there? Check out the video above to see a side-by-side comparison between the two versions, and the differences should be apparent pretty quickly!

In Braid, Anniversary Edition, players will travel from a city house through a series of interconnected worlds where time behaves strangely, solving subtle platform puzzles while searching for an elusive Princess across beautifully painted environments. This is the game fans remember, with all of the original challenges and the same haunting, evocative score — but repainted pixel by pixel so that each carefully rendered world comes to life in high resolution. Moreover, Braid, Anniversary Edition offers over 15 hours of recorded insight and conversation from developer Jonathan Blow, artist David Hellman and additional members of the Braid creative team. The commentary can be navigated by visiting a new in-game world, which also contains new puzzles and redesigns of classics.
