Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II is coming to Nintendo Switch on June 8

One of the best Star Wars games ever made is coming to Switch. Along with the news that Respawn Entertainment will release in 2023, Disney shared yesterday that Aspyr is carrying 2004 Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords to the Nintendo handheld. Additionally, the studio said that it plans to release a “Restored Content” DLC for the game. That’s exciting news for what’s often considered one of the franchise’s diamonds in the rough.

Many Star Wars fans love it Knights of the Old Republic II for his more complicated interpretation of the conflict between the Jedi and the Sith. Unfortunately, the game shipped unfinished due in part to the fact that the developer, best known for his work on Fallout New Vegashe had 14 to 16 months to complete work on the project.

Obsidian was forced to remove content, including an entire playable planet, to meet a deadline set by publisher LucasArts. After the studio moved on to other projects, a group of fans began work on PC, promising to bring the final version of the game as close to Obsidian’s original vision as possible. And for the most part, they achieved that goal, making the PC version of The Sith Lords the ultimate way to experience Knights of the Old Republic II.

While we wait for more information on the restored content DLC, Aspyr said it would be released Kotor II to change on June 8. The studio is also working on a PS5 remake of the original game.
