Later this month, Star Wars: Republic Commando will receive a physical release on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 thanks to Limited Run Games! Originally released on Xbox back in 2005, the title is a first-person shooter set during Clone Wars. Developer Aspyr is porting the game to current generation consoles digitally this month, but Star Wars fans will now also have the chance to add it to their physical collections! Pre-orders for the game begin April 16 and Republic Commando will be available in both standard and collector’s format. The pre-order period will last for four weeks.
A picture of the collector’s edition can be found in the Tweet that is embedded below.

The standard edition of Republic Commando will be available on the Nintendo Switch and PS4 for $ 29.99, while the collector’s edition sets fans back $ 89.99. The collector’s edition will include a SteelBook case, a needle, a metal coin, a reversible poster, a set of art cards and a numbered certificate of authenticity. Like previous Star Wars collector’s editions, all items will be included in a special hard cardboard outer box. The game will also receive a PC release, which will be included in an action figure-inspired blister pack, similar to previous releases.
It remains to be seen whether Aspyr harbor Star Wars: Republic Commando will be as well received as the Xbox original, but with the game to be released digitally on April 6, fans will have the chance to check out reviews before plundering cash for a pre-order. Releases from Limited Run Games are made to order, so the wait will be a bit longer, especially for those who buy the collector’s edition. But given some of the controversy surrounding late digital games, the detour may prove worth it for some Star Wars fans!
