One of the best Star Wars games ever made is making its way to Switch. Along with the news that Respawn Entertainment will release in 2023, Disney shared yesterday that Aspyr wears the 2004s Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords to Nintendo’s handheld. Additionally, the studio said it plans to release “Restored Content” DLC for the game. This is great news for what is often considered one of the franchise’s rough diamonds.
Many Star Wars fans love Knights of the Old Republic II for its more complicated depiction of the conflict between the Jedi and the Sith. Unfortunately, the game was delivered in an unfinished state partly because the developer, best known for his work on Fallout: New Vegashad 14 to 16 months to complete the work on the project.
Obsidian was forced to cut content, including an entire playable planet, to meet the deadline set by publisher LucasArts. After the studio moved on to other projects, a group of fans began working on PC, promising to bring the final version of the game as close to Obsidian’s original vision as possible. And for the most part, they succeeded in that goal, making the PC version of The Sith Lords the definitive way to experience Knights of the Old Republic II.
While we wait for more information on the restored DLC, Aspyr said it will post KotOR II for Switch on June 8. The studio is also working on a PS5 remake of the original game.
