In a delightful surprise for Star Wars enthusiasts and Nintendo Switch gamers, the Star Wars Heritage Pack is slated to receive a physical edition release, perfectly timed for the festive season. This bundle, which encompasses a rich tapestry of classic Star Wars titles, promises to be a must-have for fans of the franchise.
A Treasure Trove of Star Wars Classics
The physical bundle, set to release on December 8, 2023, boasts a collection of seven iconic Star Wars games. These include:
- Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
- Star Wars: Republic Commando
- Star Wars: Episode I Racer
- Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
- Star Wars: Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast
- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords
While the contents of the physical bundle mirror its digital counterpart, there’s a notable distinction. The two Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) games won’t be available on the cartridge. Instead, players will need to download these titles separately.

Pricing and Availability
The physical bundle, priced at a reasonable $60/£49, offers significant value, especially when considering the depth and breadth of the games included. For context, the digital version of the same bundle is currently available on the UK eShop for £68.
However, there’s a catch. As of now, the physical edition has only been confirmed for players in the United States. European and UK fans are eagerly awaiting news on the availability of the physical edition in their regions. While the anticipation builds, the gaming community remains hopeful for a broader release.
A Glimpse into the Future of Star Wars Gaming
The Star Wars gaming universe continues to expand. In a recent revelation at the Ocala Comic Con, actor and voice artist Cameron Monaghan, known for his portrayal of lead character Cal Kestis, confirmed the development of a third installment in the Star Wars: Jedi game series. This announcement has further fueled the excitement within the Star Wars gaming community.
The Star Wars Heritage Pack’s physical edition for the Nintendo Switch is a testament to the enduring appeal of the Star Wars franchise. As the holiday season approaches, this bundle is poised to be a coveted gift for fans and gamers alike. With its rich collection of classic titles and the promise of more Star Wars adventures on the horizon, the force remains strong in the world of gaming.
