Classic Star Wars Video Game Collection Announced At E3 2019

That's a lot of good titles.

16 Comments

Jedi Fallen Order is not the only exciting news for Star Wars fans to come out of E3 2019. Limited Run, a company that makes physical versions of popular digital-only PS4, PS Vita, and Switch games, held its own E3 press conference this year. During the show, Limited Run made a surprise announcement: A physical collection of classic Star Wars games is on the way, including some beloved titles from a decade long, long ago.

The collection includes a bunch of beloved Star Wars games, ranging from 2D platformers to first-person shooters. The Limited Run Games Star Wars Collector's Edition includes The Empire Strikes Back, X-Wing, Rebel Assault I & II, TIE Fighter, Dark Forces, Shadows of the Empire, Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, Episode I: Racer, Bounty Hunter, Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, Racer Revenge, and Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.

There's a lot of beloved Star Wars titles in that list. The notable standouts are Tie Fighter and all three Jedi Knight games, all of which still have fierce fanbases to this day. Shadows of the Empire is also a fairly good game and is highly regarded for its opening Hoth level. Bounty Hunter was popular for its time and most likely the primary inspiration for the canceled Star Wars 1313 game that would have seen players take on the role of a bounty hunter. Back in the day, a lot of these games were canon as well, filling in plot points and holes. However, thanks to Disney, that is no longer the case.

It's been a pretty big E3 for Star Wars, as Respawn finally revealed gameplay for its upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order game during EA's press conference. Fallen Order takes inspiration from both From Software's Bloodborne and Retro Studios' Metroid Prime. The game stars Cal Kestis, a Jedi Padawan who managed to escape Order 66 and now lives in hiding from the Galactic Empire. Combat is tactical, rewarding players for thinking through how they swing their lightsaber and when they use one of Cal's many Force powers.

They keep rereleasing old SW games. I wonder how long it will be before Disney/Lucasfilm finally figures out we want sequels to some of them, not new EA crap?

No KotOR, no Force Unleashed, and no Battlefront (classic)? I guess I'll pass.

Pretty good collection, would've liked a few more titles like Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace for PS1, Episode 3, and perhaps 1 of the Force Unleashed games.

So no X-Box version? (and yeah, some stuff is dated, but if I could get multiplayer XvT and Academy, I'd be happy.)

But this would require some work if it did come to consoles, as a few of these were PC only, most I got from Good old Games on sale.

So...it's just a bunch of old games lumped together in one go? Not remastered or HD or anything?

cool collection, but not interesting to me unless its coming to Switch, these games would only make sense to play portable since being blown up on a big screen will show its outdatedness even more.
