Star Wars fans looking for some retro-clone trooper action can jump back into the fray on Tuesday when the remastered version of Republic Commando lands on Nintendo Switch and PS4. The tactical first-person shooter, which will cost you $15, also has a new trailer to celebrate its launch.
Republic Commando originally came out on Xbox and PC in 2005, a few months before Revenge of the Sith hit theaters. As with the recent Jedi Outcast, Jedi Academy, Episode 1: Racer, and Knights of the Old Republic 2 re-releases, the remaster was handled by Aspyr. This new version does not have the multiplayer mode of the original but will feature modernized controls.
The game is set during the Clone Wars and you’ll be in charge of the special ops unit Delta Squad, a team of clone commandos with awesome, self-explanatory names like Boss, Scorch, Fixer, and Sev (the latter is a bit obscure, but he’s a sniper). In addition to shooting bad guys, much of the game consists of giving commands to your squadmates to take actions based on their unique abilities.
Boss is voiced by Temuera Morrison, who played Jango Fett and the clones in the prequel trilogy. The actor recently returned to the Star Wars universe as Boba Fett in season 2 of The Mandalorian and will star in the upcoming Disney Plus show The Book of Boba Fett.
“Since its original launch in 2005, Republic Commando remains a fan-favorite Star Wars game. We are honored to partner with Lucasfilm Games to bring back this beloved moment in the franchise’s history,” said Ted Staloch, co-founder of Aspyr, in a statement.
