The Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic that was previously announced at the PlayStation Showcase event will only be coming to PC and PS5 consoles. Still, fans of the franchise will soon be allowed to play their favorite 2003 intergalactic game on their portable handheld device.

Previously developed by Edmonton-based BioWare, this popular Star Wars RPG will soon be joining other classic Star Wars titles that are already playable on the Switch, namely, Star Wars Republic Commando and Star Wars Episode 1: Racer. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic has already cemented its reputation as one of the gaming community’s most beloved western RPS that have a unique take on the Star Wars universe. Players can create their own characters and also choose whether or not they want to be a Jedi or join the Dark Side as a Sith.

However, since the Switch port of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is going to be the 18-year-old game, fans can expect that it will not look as top notch as the other Star Wars games from the recent past, such as Squadrons or Jedi Fallen Order. Still, the narrative of the series, which is set nearly 4,000 years before the events that transpired in the films, has remained beloved among its fans for a very long time.
