Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Returns on Nintendo Switch This April

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is making a surprise return on Nintendo Switch, based off the Wii version. Confirmed during tonight's Nintendo Direct, we'll be taking up the mantle of Darth Vader's secret apprentice Starkiller once more on April 20, 2022.

Speaking in a press release, Nintendo released this outline:

Unleash the power of the Force in this classic Star Wars action-adventure. As Darth Vader’s Secret Apprentice, you’ll use devastating Force powers and lightsaber combos as you hunt down Jedi Masters on familiar planets. Use button controls, or opt for motion controls, enhanced from the original Wii version. You can also duel locally with a friend to determine who is the galaxy’s most powerful Jedi.
