The original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is heading to Switch! Not only is this RPG classic heading to the Nintendo Switch it's heading there soon! Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic will be joining the Nintendo Switch lineup on November 11, 2021. That's right, Star Wars fans! You'll be able to play Knights of the Old Republic on the go, provided you bring your Nintendo Switch along! Though, that was possible before too since there is a mobile version of the game. Still, it's nice to see an actual video game console getting the game too!
It's been a really good time to be a fan of Knights of the old Republic. It was announced just recently that a remake is being made of Knights of the Old Republic. The remake is heading to the PS5 and seems to be exclusive. At least, when it first launches. I feel like the odds of it remaining an exclusive on the PS5 are incredibly slim. There's no way that Aspyr will want to keep the game exclusive on the PS5. Still, it's cool that PS5 players will have a chance to play the remake first. I mean... if they can find a PS5, that is.
Still, there are a lot of questions surrounding the remake. We don't know how faithful it will be, especially since remakes these days can go either way. In some cases, like with the Spyro trilogy remake, they are super faithful. I'm talking that, mostly, they only get new graphics and the rest of the game is almost unchanged. That's if they even change anything at all. In other cases, like the Final Fantasy VII Remake, they drastically change the game. In fact, it feels more apt to call the Final Fantasy VII Remake a reimagining. Or even a sequel, potentially, depending on how the rest of the game shakes out. The problem is we don't know which road the Knights of the Old Republic will take!
It's almost unilateral, what people want though. They want a faithful remake, though I doubt they'd complain about added content. They just want the game to retain what made it special. On my end, though, I've never played the game. I'll be checking out the original when it drops on the Nintendo Switch!
You should do the same on November 11, 2021 and check out Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic.
