Aspyr Media is working on a ground-up remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, but the company has plenty of experience with ports and remasters of older Star Wars titles as well. The original Knights of the Old Republic has seen re-releases thanks to Aspyr, the most recent of which was for the Nintendo Switch just a few months ago. Now, its sequel is getting that treatment as well.
Aspyr has announced that it’s bringing Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords to the Nintendo Switch. It will launch in June and will cost $15, with a file size of 15.7 GB, as per its eShop page. You can expect improved resolution updates and performance optimizations.
More significantly, however, Aspyr will also release The Sith Lords Restored Content DLC as a free post-launch update for the game. The original KOTOR 2, developed by Obsidian Entertainment, released with a hefty chunk of content cut out due to time and development constraints. Fans have since then released mods that restore that content, thanks to it still being left over in the original release’s files, but this will be the first time an official release of the game includes that.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords launches for the Switch on June 8. Check out its announcement trailer below.
