Star Wars Republic Commando Makes A Return This April

Aspyr announced this morning they're bringing back the classic game Star Wars Republic Commando to PS4 and Nintendo Switch. A fan favorite from back during the release of the Prequels, this first-person tactical shooter put you in the middle of the fight as you lead a team of clone commandos through increasingly difficult missions. All of these battles take place throughout the Clone Wars, adding a sense of combat to the saga. The team at Aspyr worked with Lucasfilm Games to bring back this 2005 single-player experience with modernized controls and improved graphics so you can enjoy the game of yesteryear with a feeling of modern gaming. The game is set to be released on the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on April 6th, 2021 for $15. You can pre-order it for the Switch now, but in the meantime, here's a little more info on the game as well as the trailer so you can see the new look and control in action.
