Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic Comes To Nintendo Switch November 11
The classic BioWare RPG--one of the best Star Wars games of all time--is getting ported to Switch.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is releasing on Nintendo Switch on November 11, Nintendo revealed during today's Nintendo Direct. The digital-only release will be available to preorder later today on the Switch eShop. KOTOR is one of the best Star Wars games of all time, and although its price wasn't announced during the stream, other classic Star Wars games on Switch have cost $10 to $15 on Switch.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is set thousands of years before the Skywalker Saga. The game uses the d20 gameplay system popularized by Dungeons & Dragons. KOTOR stood out when it originally released in 2003 because of both its combat and its excellent writing. It tells one of the more interesting stories in Star Wars media. Hopefully Aspyr Media will also bring Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords to Switch at a later date.
It's certainly never a bad time to dive into KOTOR, but it's especially timely right now. Just the other week during the latest PlayStation Showcase, Aspyr announced a full remake of KOTOR for PS5 and PC. It only received a brief teaser trailer and a release window wasn't revealed.
