Two Classic Star Wars Games Coming To PS4 And Nintendo Switch
As if last night’s Nintendo Direct wasn’t exciting enough, the folks over at LucasFilm have sweetened the pot even further by announcing that two classic Star Wars games will be making their way to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. Revealed by the company directly after the Nintendo Direct presentation concluded, both Star Wars Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy are coming soon to both consoles.
As detailed in a new blog post over on the Star Wars website, the two LucasArts games are being brought to both PS4 and Nintendo Switch thanks to the collaborative efforts of LucasFilm and developer Aspyr, with Jedi Outcast releasing on September 24th. Fans will have to wait a bit longer for Jedi Academy, as the current release window for the title is early 2020.
In terms of what to expect, both titles will feature Gyro Aiming support for Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons, with Jedi Academy also sporting the return of the game’s online multiplayer battles. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Jedi Outcast, which will only be shipping with its single player campaign intact. Still, the game remains one of the most critically acclaimed Star Wars titles of all time, so a chance to play it on a portable console such as the Switch will likely be a dream come true for many.
Jedi Outcast releases on September 24th for PS4 and Nintendo Switch, with Jedi Academy arriving in early 2020.
