Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast

Retailer listings have started to surface that reveal plans for a new Star Wars Jedi Knight Collection at retail on Switch.

According to product descriptions, the package will contain two previously-released titles. Along with Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, it also includes Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. You’ll be getting what we assume is both titles on a single Switch cartridge. 

The blurriness makes it look slightly unfinished, but here’s an early version of the boxart:

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.

By far the most common issue players had with the Switch version of Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast was the lack of an option to invert the Y-axis, a popular choice for games that require precise aiming. Developer Aspyr previously said that they were working on a patch to add that option to the game. Today, that patch has finally been released, and you’ll be able to invert the Y-axis after downloading it.

Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast landed on the Switch eShop today. Get a look at some gameplay footage in the video below.

Update: Bumped to the top. Aspyr now says it is working on an update to add aim inversion, and it will be made available “in the coming weeks.”


Original: Only after it was announced in this month’s Nintendo Direct, Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast landed on the Switch eShop today. However, players were quick to notice an option that’s missing in the game’s settings.

Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast doesn’t have inverted controls. In other words, there’s no option to invert aim (y-axis/x-axis). A number of other settings are available, including support for gyro aiming on Switch, but not that one.

Aspyr has yet to say if it will be patching in the control option. If we hear anything about the situation, we’ll let you know.
