THQ Nordic and Aspyr Media have announced new Star Wars game collections which are due to be released very soon.
There are two bundles planned for both the Nintendo Switch and PS4 (as well as PS5, via backwards compatibility). These include the Star Wars Jedi Knight Collection as well as Star Wars Racer and Commando Combo, arriving first on PS4 (October 26, 2021) and then Switch (November 16, 2021).
As the names suggest, these two new Star Wars game bundles pair together Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, as well as Star Wars Episode I Racer and Republic Commando, packing in hours of remastered Star Wars fun.
All titles have been remastered for a new generation, having previously appeared on PC and older hardware. However, these remasters have yet to appear on Xbox hardware.
Star Wars Jedi Knight Collection
Get two classic Star Wars games with the Star Wars Jedi Knight Collection, which includes Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.
Meet iconic Star Wars characters such as Lando Calrissian and Luke Skywalker in Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, where you play as the Jedi Kyle Katarn, employing a unique mix of weapons, Force powers and your lightsaber in single-player first- and third-person action. Follow an ancient tradition and learn the powers—and dangers—of the Force in Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, a single- and multiplayer action combat game.
Star Wars Racer and Commando Combo
Get two classic Star Wars games with the Star Wars Racer and Commando Combo, which includes Star Wars: Episode I Racer and Star Wars Republic Commando.
Climb on, strap in, and experience the pure adrenaline-pumping excitement of the Podracing sequence from Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace in Star Wars: Episode I Racer. In Star Wars Republic Commando, you are the leader of your elite squad of Republic Commandos. Your mission is to infiltrate, dominate, and ultimately, annihilate the enemy.
While its nice to see these older hits being given some extra love, what comes next? If you’re waiting on a new Star Wars game to play, then there are upcoming projects worth following. First and foremost, we have a Knights of the Old Republic remake coming to PS5 and PC. Meanwhile, Star Wars Hunters will look to bring multiplayer action to Nintendo Switch and mobile in 2022. Finally, we have the long-awaited LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which looks to be the most ambitious LEGO game to date.
