Nintendo Direct: One Of The Most Beloved Star Wars Games Is Coming To Switch
During the September 2019 Nintendo Direct, the company announced that Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is coming to Switch this September. Though no longer canon, Jedi Outcast is one of the most beloved games amongst the Star Wars community.
First releasing in 2002, Jedi Outcast puts you in the shoes of Kyle Katarn, who finds himself facing off against dark Jedi Desann. The game was critically acclaimed for both its well-written single-player campaign and popular multiplayer.
In GameSpot’s Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast review, Amer Ajami wrote, “Jedi Outcast isn’t without a few shortcomings–the game starts off slow and involves a little too much puzzle-solving for a first-person shooter. However, the game’s strong points–especially its combat–overshadow whatever problems Jedi Outcast may have early on. It’s a very slick game that borrows the best elements from past shooters, introduces a number of its own great twists, and them combines these elements to make something that will be highly enjoyable both for those who like shooters and those who simply like Star Wars. And if you happen to like both, then you’ll be especially impressed. Jedi Outcast certainly becomes tough later on, but once you learn to master all your force powers and get a good grip on your lightsaber, you’ll feel unstoppable–the sight of Katarn effortlessly cutting through, leaping over, and pushing back crowds of enemies is a sight to behold. And once you finish the single-player game, the many multiplayer options will keep you coming back for more. Jedi Outcast is simply one of the easiest games to recommend this year.”
Star Wars Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast is coming to Nintendo Switch on September 24.
