One of the most popular Star Wars games is heading to Nintendo Switch. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lord will be available on Nintendo’s gaming console on June 8. The news was announced at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2022. At the event, makes of the game, Aspyr and Lucasfilm Games, also announced that the game, which is a sequel to the classic Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR RPG) game will come with performance enhancements and resolution upgrades. In addition to that, the game will also include Restored Content DLC, which will arrive post launch.
“With the resolution updates, performance optimizations, and The Sith Lords Restored Content DLC coming post-launch, we hope gamers will see this becoming one of the ideal platforms to dive into the galaxy showcased in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords,” Michael Blair, senior director of Business Development at Aspyr said while announcing the game.
Makers of the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lord said that the game includes three different classes of Jedi, each of which comes with access to specific force powers and customisation options, which players will be able to choose as they command a party of diverse crew mates.
