Star Wars Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast will be coming to the Nintendo Switch next month and fans are pretty pumped about that. Jedi Outcast is often considered by many to be one of the very best Star Wars games out there and should be a nice ride before fans shift their attention to EA’s Jedi: Fallen Order.
Then again, fans might ignore the newer game and be comfortable with this older port but that’s just me being cynical.
In this short trailer for Jedi Outcast, the game highlights how your character can wield over 8 Jedi Force powers, which you can use to turn your enemies into mincemeat. Sure, the Jedi Order specifically tells its knights not to kill but how many Jedis in Star Wars’ canon have ever not-killed anyone?
Newer fans might be turned off by the graphics, which were cutting edge at the time but look terribly dated these days. Visuals aren’t everything of course and we’re sure that older fans who enjoyed this game on their old PCs should be able to convince them to give this classic a try. It’s also a nice way to prep themselves up for the upcoming Jedi Academy port, which will come out next year.
Personally, I’m hoping that we eventually get ports of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, the latter of which offered a fun versus mode filled with a bunch of playable Jedi. While I’m a casual Star Wars fan, playing as Jedis always seemed cool and I can’t wait for this game.
Star Wars Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast is coming to Nintendo Switch on September 24.
