Shortly after the launch of Star Wars Episode I: Racer, players came across some issues involving the game’s motion controls. Thankfully, a patch was quickly released, and those problems have now been addressed. Be sure to update to version 1.0.1 for the motion control fixes.

Following a previous delay, Star Wars Episode l: Racer has received a new release date on Switch. The game will launch on June 23, Aspyr has announced.

Star Wars Episode l: Racer was originally going to be on Switch last month. However, the game was pushed back “due to the ongoing work from home requirements across the industry”.

Star Wars Episode l: Racer won’t be launching on Switch this week as originally planned. It’s been delayed “due to the ongoing work from home requirements across the industry,” Aspyr noted today.

An official statement from the company reads:

Star Wars Episode l: Racer, which was only just confirmed for Switch a few weeks ago, already has a release date. Aspyr announced today that it will be bringing the classic N64 racer to the eShop on May 12.

Here’s a rundown of the game’s features:

Limited Run Games is giving a pair of Star Wars games on Switch the physical treatment. Boxed versions are in the works for both Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, the company has announced.

Both games will have standard copies as well as collector’s editions. Fans can also choose to purchase Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy as a dual-pack with slipcover.

Pre-orders go live on April 24 at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET, and then again at 3 PM PT / 6 PM ET. Standard copies can be reserved over a four-week period, though the collector’s editions will go very quickly.

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy debuted on Switch alongside last month’s Nintendo Direct Mini. This week, Aspyr distributed a new update for the game.

Version 1.0.2 is now live on Switch. The main point of the update involves taking care of unintentional cross-play with PC players, which you can read about here.

Below are the official patch notes:

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy came out on consoles towards the tail end of last week, but it’s been met with some frustration. Aspyr, the company behind the port, accidentally enabled cross-play between Switch (as well as PS4) and Switch. Usually this sort of feature would be celebrated, but it’s been turned on by default and unfair matches have been taking place between newcomers and experienced PC players.

PC players need to go out of their way in order to make cross-play happen. Users need to input the specific IP address of console matchmaking servers, and it doesn’t even show up on the menus for the PC release. Aside from having more experience, they’re also able to use a mouse and keyboard setup.

Here’s what Aspyr is saying about the situation:
