Star Wars has been such an iconic IP since it first debuted as a blockbuster. Since then, the series has continued to grow with more movies, TV series, and of course, video games. Over the years, we’ve seen some pretty iconic video game titles released for a wide range of console platforms to hit the market. However, in this Nintendo Switch Star Wars games list, we are focusing exclusively on the Nintendo Switch hybrid console. While the Nintendo Switch may not have many Star Wars games available, several iconic titles are available on the Nintendo eShop today.
Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast arrived on Nintendo Switch after its original 2002 release. This game follows on from the 1997 release of Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Force II, although you can jump into this game without much problem for not playing the previous installment.
Basically, players here will play as Kyle Katarn, a former Jedi who has withdrawn his forces and chose to live a life as a mercenary instead. One day at work, your longtime friend is slaughtered by a group of Siths known as the Imperial Remnants.
There, Kyle vowed revenge and once again returned to the force hunting down the remnants of the Royal Family. It’s a mix of FPS with hack and slash gameplay in a third-person perspective as Kyle can wield the iconic sword along with performing a series of powerful attacks against his enemies. From there, it’s all about using your power and clearly knocking down the opponent to take them down successfully.
Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy – Nintendo Switch
Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is the continue part after the events of Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. Instead of taking on the role of Kyle Katarn, the player can create a customized protagonist to start the Nintendo Switch Star Wars game as a Jedi padawan.
With that said, your mentor is none other than Kyle Katarn himself, so you’ll still see your old protagonist here in this game. Overall, players are completing a series of missions as a Jedi padawan with an overall story that slowly begins and progresses along the way.
Players mostly go with another group of Siths, but to avoid spoiling too much here, we won’t go too far beyond that. At any rate, the plot might not be the most solid story here. But at the very least, you’ll get plenty of Star Wars action and iconic characters to meet remove on the go.
Star Wars Republic Commando – Nintendo Switch
The last of our Nintendo Switch Star Wars list, Star Wars: Republic Command came out in 2005 so it’s been around for several years and across multiple platforms. However, its popularity has allowed this game to continue to receive support and ports on the latest console releases.
Star Wars is an event that we can see as the climax of the movie Star Wars: Attack of the Clones Episode II. At the time, there weren’t any actual movies or series to highlight the beginnings and chaos of this period. However, Star Wars: Republic Commando gave a little introduction to the beginning of this war.
Instead of playing the role of a Jedi, players will step into the role of an elite commando leading the clone soldier’s special operations in a series of missions. This is a tactical shooter video game in which the player assumes command of your team and ultimately destroys enemy targets.
