Star Wars Episode I: Racer to include LAN multiplayer on Switch

My lord, is that legal?!

We shared news of Star Wars Episode I: Racer coming to Switch earlier today, but the official rundown of the game on StarWars.com includes a more complete list of features. Among the details is a mention of LAN multiplayer support on Switch, which is definitely a welcome feature. Check out the full breakdown below.

The ’90s classic Star Wars Episode I Racer is coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 complete with modernized controls, Lucasfilm and developer Aspyr announced today. A beloved racing title based on the podracing sequence from Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, Star Wars Episode I Racer puts you behind the controls of your favorite podracers as you speed through flaming methane lakes, Tusken Raider assaults, anti-gravity tunnels, and much more in a pulse-pounding, do-or-die fight to the finish line. Features include:

25 playable racers including: Anakin Skywalker, Sebulba, and Ratts Tyerell
Race tracks spanning 8 unique worlds including: Tatooine, Baroonda, and Malastare
Work with pit droids to upgrade your podracer for higher top speeds and acceleration
Discover short-cuts and secrets to master your lap times
Split-screen multiplayer (Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4) and LAN multiplayer (Nintendo Switch)

Thanks to Mimewithoutacoz for the heads up!


It's a NEW, lap, RECORD!

Never had a chance to understand it back on the Nintendo 64 despite liking it. Time to redeem myself.

It is actually really cool game or it was.
It would be cool if it was a remake

This is getting out of hand....now there are two of them!

YES!!! I miss that game a lot!
