The force continues to be strong with the Nintendo Switch as Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is heading to the console this April.
The beloved original Star Wars video game featuring Darth Vader’s secret apprentice will be released for the Nintendo Switch on April 20. You can preorder the game on the Nintendo eShop starting today.
In the game, you’re hunting down the Jedi after Order 66 is proclaimed across the galaxy. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed features a heavy emphasis on the action as you utilize your force powers to throw stormtroopers across the environment. When the game was first revealed, there was a great emphasis on its physics capabilities as wood crumbles from your strikes.
This version will come with both traditional button controls and motion controls that are, according to Nintendo’s press release, “enhanced from the original Wii version.” The game will come with a local duel mode that you can play with a friend.
Aspyr has announced this will be the inferior Wii version, but bringing back a story-focused title from a galaxy, far far away, might be a perfect fit on the Nintendo Switch. We also don’t know if the DLC will come included in this bundle as of yet.
