A new Star Wars The game is now available on Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite and PS4. As of today, April 6, all users on the aforementioned consoles can download first person tactical shooters Star Wars: Republic Command for $ 15 via PlayStation Store and Nintendo eShop. A former Xbox exclusive, Star Wars: Republic Commando debuted back in 2005, with this special reissue as a slight upgrade of the original. It’s not a remake, and it’s not really a remaster either, which explains why it’s only $ 15.
To follow all this news, Aspyr Media has released a brand new launch trailer for the re-release, giving players a taste of what upgrades have and have not been done.
There are still reviews for the port couple, but right now the Nintendo Switch versions have a 76 on Metacritic, which is two points below the 78 games managed to pose back in 2005.
“Chaos has broken out throughout the galaxy. As the leader of an elite group of Republic Commandos, your mission is to infiltrate, dominate and eventually annihilate the enemy,”
At the moment of publication, it is unclear how much space is needed to download the game on PS4, but on the Nintendo Switch it requires 2.5 GB. Presumably the PS4 version is in this ballpark, but so far this has not been confirmed.
When it comes to other platforms, there is no word on more ports beyond these two. The game can already be played on PC, as well as Xbox consoles via backward compatibility, so this may well be the only ports Aspyr Media will drop.
