Lucasfilm Games and Nightdive Studios have confirmed a release date for Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster on Nintendo Switch.

This has seen the developer look to deliver “a faithful remaster of the classic first-person shooter,” which was originally released way back in 1995.

In Star Wars: Dark Forces you play as Kyle Katarn, a defector of the Galactic Empire turned mercenary for hire. After joining the Rebel Alliance’s covert operations division he is tasked with infiltrating the Galactic Empire, where he discovers the secret Dark Trooper Project. Unless Katarn and the Rebel Alliance intervene, the Imperial battle droids and power-armoured Stormtroopers that it would create only stand to strengthen the Empire’s grip on the galaxy.

Nightdive Studios has used its proprietary KEX engine, delivering “upgraded gameplay, high-resolution textures, enhanced lighting and rendering, and support for console gamepads with platform-specific features.”

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:

  • All fourteen original levels, featuring Star Wars worlds and capital ships
  • Use your ability to jump, duck, and crawl to solve puzzles and defeat enemies
  • Your Personal Digital Assistant provides you with in-game information including map, inventory, and mission briefing
  • Engaging first-person ground combat featuring ten weapons and twenty types of enemies
  • Advanced 3D rendering enables updated lighting and atmospheric effects
  • Modern gamepad support adds a new weapon wheel, and rumble
  • Controller Support – vibration and gyro controls
  • A variety of power-ups are made available to the player, including health, shields, weapons and ammunition
  • For combat, the player may use fists, explosive landmines and thermal detonators, as well as blasters and other ranged weapons
  • Includes immersive environmental puzzles and mazes

Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster will be released digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 28 February 2024.
