Classic Star Wars games, Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy have both been announced for the Nintendo Switch and Sony's PlayStation 4.

Lucasfilm is working with developer Aspyr to bring the beloved Force-powered action/adventure games back to consoles. Both games will include the multiplayer aspect of the game as well as the single player story mode, and will support Gyro Aiming on the Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons.

Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast was the 2002 follow up to the equally classic Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, which followed hero Kyle Katarn on his journey from Rebel spy to Jedi Knight. Jedi Academy followed in 2003, and allowed the player to create their own character to take on the role of Katarn's apprentice. Both games featured a variety of multiplayer options, including Capture the Flag, Free For All, and various other team and solo-based match types.

Jedi Outcast will release on Switch and PS4 on 24 September 2019, giving us something to do while we wait for Jedi: Fallen OrderJedi Academy will release some time in 2020.

    • Get Jedi Academy on Android!

      2003 saw the most recent instalment in the fan favourite Jedi Knight game series, Jedi Academy. Now, thanks to the efforts of an independent games company you can bring the classic Star Wars gaming experience to your Android device!
      Belok Games have created a way to port your existing Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy game data over to an Android device, enabling you to relive this classic Star Wars game on the go.
      Their app, Jedi Academy Touch, does not include the original game data from LucasArts and Raven Software, but provides a way for your Android device to handle the PC game data into a format your device can understand. It's hard to believe that Jedi Academy is now over ten years old, but the original game can still be picked up for relatively low prices, including through digital download service, Steam.
      If you own both Jedi Academy and a compatible Android device, instructions can be found on the Google Play app page, but be warned that the developer recommends you have at least a dual core device in order to play the game.

      EA has revealed that the upcoming Battlefront reboot from DICE will be only be available on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One, in a move that may leave owners of the previous generation of consoles out in the cold. Developers say that dropping the older consoles will allow them to make full use of the Frostbite 3 engine upon which the game is built.

      More details about the game are due to be shared at Star Wars Celebration next month, where fans hope to see an official trailer for the game and see some of the gameplay.

      The new Battlefront is said to be a reboot of the franchise rather than a continuation, is scheduled for release at the end of 2015 to coincide with the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

    • News: EA hiring for unnamed Star Wars game

      Star Wars gaming licence holders EA have begun recruiting for an as yet unnamed Star Wars project.The games giant is currently looking for two Executive Producers and a Senior Environment Artist based in California and British Columbia. Both of these locations are home to EA subsidiary developer Visceral, most well known for their Dead Space series of video games.

      The advertised job titles seem to suggest that this is a project in its very early stages, but it could always be possible that they are picking up development from a previous title or making a sequel to a preexisting Star Wars games series.


      All clues seen thus far are that this will be a 'HD console title', so it is likely that this will be heading to Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
