Today, premiere video game restoration developer Nightdive Studios and Lucasfilm Games announced that Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster — a faithful remaster of the classic first-person shooter (FPS) originally released in 1995 — will be released on Switch February 28, 2024.

Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster has been brought to life by the team at Nightdive Studios, fully remastered through its proprietary KEX engine, allowing the game to run on modern gaming devices at up to 120FPS. New and returning players will enjoy Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster’s upgraded gameplay, high-resolution textures, enhanced lighting and rendering, and support for console gamepads with platform-specific features.

In this first Star Wars FPS video game, players assume the role of Kyle Katarn, a defector of the Galactic Empire turned mercenary for hire. Katarn joins the Rebel Alliance’s covert operations division tasked with infiltrating the Galactic Empire, where he discovers the secret Dark Trooper Project. The development of this powerful new series of Imperial battle droids and power-armored stormtroopers stands to strengthen the Empire’s grip on the galaxy unless Katarn and the Rebel Alliance intervene.

  • Engaging first-person ground combat featuring ten weapons and twenty types of enemies
  • Advanced 3D rendering enables realistic lighting and atmospheric effects
  • Modern gamepad support adds a new weapon wheel, rumble, and motion/gyro controls
