Rumour: Star Wars Republic Commando Coming to Nintendo Switch

The first-person shooter Star Wars: Republic Commando, released 16 years ago, may be coming to Nintendo Switch. A well-known data miner states this based on his own findings. There is no official word yet about a game coming to Switch.

The data miner with the Twitter name NWPlayer123 has a screenshot published about an update on a Nintendo server, showing an image and the name of the Star Wars game. According to the screenshot, the update comes from Aspyr Media, the company that is also behind the Switch ports for other Star Wars games, such as Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Star Wars Episode I: Racer.

Nintendo and Aspyr have not responded. The information is obtained from a deployed bot that scans all updates. The person behind the Twitter account states that developers sometimes make a visible update before they officially announce the arrival of the game.

Star Wars: Republic Commando was released in 2005 for PC and the original Xbox only. It is a squad-based tactical shooter with a first-person perspective that was well received at the time. In the game, players take on the role of a leader of an elite team of clone troopers and must complete missions for the Galactic Republic as a team during the period of the Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones movie.
