Star Wars Jedi Knight 2 – Jedi Outcast & Jedi Academy Coming To PS4 & Switch
Surprisingly, Nintendo Switch users learned that a Star Wars title will arrive in a few days and those who enjoyed the era of GameCube, PS2 and Xbox will be on the ground, rather in known space as Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is back, along with another title from that time.
As part of today’s Nintendo Direct, it was revealed that Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, a title that debuted in 2002, will return in a remastered version that, for now, will hit Switch and PS4 on September 24.
It should be mentioned that it will only be the campaign mode, since the original title had multiplayer but this will not be taken into account on this occasion. The original game was developed by Vicarious Visions, in the case of PS2, Xbox and GameCube, while the PC version was the responsibility of Raven Software, and is considered one of the best games in the franchise.
