With EA finally releasing a new single-player focused Star Wars game later this year, things are looking up for fans of the franchise. More good news is that two classic Star Wars games, Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy, are heading to the Nintendo Switch.
Jedi Outcast will be arriving on the Switch on the 24th of September with Jedi Academy releasing early in 2020. After the announcement, Lucasfilm also revealed that both games will be heading not only to the Switch but the PlayStation 4 as well.
Viewed by many fans as some of the best Star Wars games out there, it’s great to see these gems making a comeback on current-gen consoles. As can be expected both games, on the Switch at least, will support motion-controlled aiming using the Joy-Cons.
Unfortunately, we shouldn’t expect any multiplayer as both games will only include the single-player adventure. That means no slicing up your friends with your lightsaber.
Developer Aspyr games will be handling the ports for the game on the Switch.
Jedi Knight 2 originally released back in 2002 for the PC following the first game. It later released on the GameCube and original Xbox.
We can’t wait to set foot in the Star Wars universe again. Thanks to the portability of the Switch, we can now be a Jedi almost anywhere.
