Publisher Aspyr has already brought Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, and Star Wars Episode I: Racer to Nintendo Switch, but it’s seemingly got at least one more franchise title on the way. A Nintendo server data update has apparently revealed that Aspyr is publishing Star Wars: Republic Commando on Nintendo Switch. The game originally launched for Xbox and PC in 2005, being a first-person shooter from LucasArts that puts you in the boots of the titular clone commandos during the prequel era. It differentiated itself from Dark Forces and/or Jedi Knight with its squad-based gameplay and the absence of Force powers.

Star Wars: Republic Commando would be a terrific boon for Switch, as it’s perhaps become one of the most fondly remembered console outings for the franchise. It remains to be seen if Nintendo Switch or a Switch successor might receive more, perhaps new games from the franchise, as the rebranded Lucasfilm Games seeks to create more original Star Wars games with various developers, including EA and Ubisoft. With Disney in control of Star Wars, there is no end to the possibilities for milking and strangling the franchise to do whatever it wants — for better or for worse.
