Star Wars: Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast is returning. Same graceful combat; same clumsy name.
Yesterday, Nintendo announced that Star Wars: Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast is coming to Switch on September 24. Jedi Outcast, originally released in 2002, is one of the most beloved Star Wars video games, receiving strong marks for its action and storytelling. Since then, Jedi Outcast has been included on multiple round-ups of the best Star Wars games of all time. And, at least one list of the best games of all time, period.
Star Wars: Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast stars Kyle Katarn, the protagonist of four Star Wars games and multiple books.
The Switch port was highlighted in the Nintendo Direct September 2019 presentation, but Jedi Outcast is arriving on PS4 on the same day. This re-release marks Jedi Outcast’s first appearance on modern consoles. And, not coincidentally, the game hits less than two months before Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, another melee-focused Star Wars game, that’s aiming to tell a compelling story with satisfying action.
And, hey, if it doesn’t manage that, at least we’ve got Jedi Outcast on Switch.
