Bring Them All Back!
Aspyr has revealed that the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch are getting some classic Star Wars games. They are releasing two different bundles: the Star Wars Racer and Commando Combo and the Star War Jedi Knight Collection. Of course, The original Knights of the Old Republic has already been announced to be coming to Switch with a remake being made for PS5 and PC.
Unsurprisingly, the Star War Jedi Knight Collection contains Jedi Knight games. It contains Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.
Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast:
- As Kyle Katarn, agent of the New Republic, use your lightsaber and the full power of the Force to combat a new evil plaguing the galaxy.
- Choose wisely from an arsenal of 13 weapons, including the disruptor rifle, thermal detonators, trip mines, and Wookiee bowcaster.
- Test your skills in 24 single-player missions, four epic boss fights, and one unforgettable cantina.
Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy:
- Play with up to 16 online players in six online multiplayer modes, including Siege, Capture the Flag, and Free for All.
- Customize your character by defining both look and gender before entering the Academy to learn the power and dangers of the Force.
- Construct your own lightsaber from handle to blade. As you progress, discover the power of wielding two lightsabers or the ultimate double-bladed lightsaber made famous by Darth Maul.
- Interact with famous Star Wars characters in many classic Star Wars locations as you face the ultimate choice: fight for good and freedom on the light side, or follow the path of power and evil to the dark side.
The Star Wars Racer and Commando Combo includes Episode I Racer and Republic Commando.

- The Squad Is Your Weapon: Your squad will follow your orders, performing complex commands and strategic maneuvers. You are their leader. They are your weapon.
I haven’t had the opportunity to play any of these games really. You can nab these collections on the Nintendo Switch and PS4 for $29.99 / €29.99 / £25.99 each when they launch on October 26. I’ll probably have to pick these up for the Switch.
