Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy Now Available on Switch and PS4

A classic favorite, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is now available for the Switch and PS4. The game that was originally released in 2003 is now remastered and making a comeback to some new platforms. It’s been updated with some new, modern controls.

If you’re not familiar with the game, it puts you in the role of a new student at Luke Skywalker’s Jedi Academy and you will fight a mysterious Sith cult throughout the galaxy. A fun aspect of this game is that it allows you to customize your character’s species, appearance, and gender, rather than choose from a pre-set player character.

You can also forge your own lightsaber design and choose from the different hilts and saber colors. How cool is that?

There’s a single-player mode as well as a multi-player mode for you to enjoy and the controls are updated for the PS4 port so it has modern controls.

And if that puts you in the mood for some more classic Star Wars games, you may be happy to know they’re updating the 90s racing game Star Wars Episode 1: Racer. This one is also for the Switch and PS4. It’s supposed to be coming later this Spring.

The classic 90s racing game will return with modernized controls. We’re gonna pod-race like it’s 1999!

We’ll keep you updated on this and other Star Wars games.
