It was revealed that two classic Star Wars video games will be getting ported to new consoles as soon as September 24. The games are Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, and Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.

The former is releasing for the Nintendo Switch and PS4 on September 24, and it will feature Gyro Aiming support for Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Cons. Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy on the other hand is set to release in 2020. It will support its multiplayer made too!

These are must-buys in my opinion, especially if you’ve listened to Nick and I wax poetic about classic Star Wars games. These franchise is always mentioned as being highly memorable, so I love that the games are getting new life on a portable console. The Switch really is the perfect place to play these older looking titles, so I’ll be adding them to my library as soon as they are available.
