The Force Unleashed Gets a Nintendo Switch Remaster – Cinelinx

Star Wars fans got some news during today’s Nintendo Direct, with the return of The Force Unleashed coming to the palm of your hand.

While I was hoping we’d get an update on Star Wars: Hunters, I’m glad we still got some sort of Star Wars news during the Nintendo Direct. During the presentation, they announced The Force Unleashed is getting a remaster.

Yes, this is a remaster of the WII version of the game that launched in 2008, so will retain the differences between that version on the ones we got with the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360. That’s…not as exciting, but I’m still pretty happy to have a way to play this classic game on a modern console (portably).

You are Starkiller, Darth Vader’s secret apprentice, who has been trained to hunt down and destroy the Jedi. Take advantage of devastating Force powers and lightsaber combos to do Darth Vader’s bidding. Similar to the 2008 release on the Nintendo Wii™, use the Nintendo Joy-Con motion controls to truly feel the destructive power of the Force or challenge a friend to a 1v1 in the local multiplayer Duel mode!

**Play as Darth Vader’s “Secret Apprentice”**
Destroy all who stand in your way in your ultimate quest to serve Lord Vader. Discover the untold story of the Secret Apprentice set between STAR WARS: Revenge of the Sith and STAR WARS: A New Hope.

**Unleash Epic Force Powers!**
Just like it’s original release on the Nintendo Wii, players can unleash devastating Force powers and lightsaber combos using the Nintendo Joy-Con’s optional motion controls.

**Local Multiplayer Duel Mode.**
Choose from 27 characters to battle a friend in a local multiplayer mode to determine the galaxy’s most powerful Jedi!

**Travel the Star Wars galaxy.**
Defeat Jedi Masters on familiar worlds, including Cloud City and the Wookiee homeworld Kashyyyk, or at other unique locations like the floral planet Felucia and the junk planet Raxus Prime.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed comes to Nintendo Switch on April 20, 2022.
