As part of Star Wars Celebration, Aspyr and Lucasfilm Games announced that the iconic RPG epic STAR WARS: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords is coming to the Nintendo Switch on June 8th. Players will get to experience the standalone sequel to the original award-winning STAR WARS: Knights of the Old Republic with HD cinematics, textures, UI and resolution.
The Sith pitch
The Sith Lords have hunted the Jedi to the edge of extinction and are on the verge of crushing the Old Republic. With the Jedi Order in ruin, the Republic’s only hope is a lone Jedi in exile struggling to reconnect with the Force. Lead a diverse crew of unique allies, make difficult choices with far-reaching consequences, and decide your destiny. Will you follow the light side and save the galaxy, or succumb to the dark side and bring it all down?
Key Features for all Jedi masters

I have fond memories of this game. I would spend afternoons with my friend as we decided together what to do with our force wielder. Would he save the Galaxy or would he rule in the chaos? This will definitely be a highly sought after game. Will you be picking it up?
