More On: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast

Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is headed to Nintendo Switch. 

The classic single-player title, released in 2002, follows Kyle Katarn, a former mercenary-turned-rebel alliance soldier, and later a full Jedi. He originally appeared in Star Wars: Dark Forces, and then went on to star in most of the Jedi Knight games, except for Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy

The game is a classic representation of the old expanded universe of the Star Wars brand. Now titled Legends, this version of the Star Wars universe straddled games, comics, and books and told an ongoing story for decades. 

Jedi Outcast plays the devil's advocate when it comes to depicting a Jedi: "I'm no Jedi. I'm just a guy with a lightsaber and a few questions," that's Kyle's opener with the announcement trailer, which you can view below. 

Boasting a roster of over eight force powers, the game's combat is not as fluid as some more modern Star Wars games. There's weight to Kyle's movement, from his jump to the way he slashes his lightsaber. It's old, but gold.

The game drops September 12th.
