This has seen the developer choose to port the Wii version of LucasArts‘ action-adventure game to the portable home console, which will let you use motion controls with the Joy-Con “to truly feel the destructive power of the Force.”
It will also come with the one-on-one local multiplayer Duel mode, which had been exclusive to the Wii version and had let you battle it out as famous Jedi and Sith from across the Star Wars saga.
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features as below:
- Play as Darth Vader’s Secret Apprentice: Destroy all who stand in your way in your ultimate quest to serve Lord Vader. Discover the untold story of the Secret Apprentice set between Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope.
- Unleash Epic Force Powers: Just like its original release on the Nintendo Wii, players can unleash devastating Force powers and lightsaber combos using the Nintendo Joy-Con’s optional motion controls.
- Local Multiplayer Duel Mode: Choose from 27 characters to battle a friend in a local multiplayer mode to determine the galaxy’s most powerful Jedi!
- Travel the Star Wars galaxy: Defeat Jedi Masters on familiar worlds, including Cloud City and the Wookiee homeworld Kashyyyk, or at other unique locations like the floral planet Felucia and the junk planet Raxus Prime.
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 20th April 2022.
