In the latest Nintendo Direct, they have announced a rather curious addition to the console. Recently, we got the announcement that Knights of the Old Republic was getting a PlayStation 5 exclusive release. Yet, it confused many that the iconic franchise wouldn’t find a home on other consoles. Well, it looks like we might have an answer as they are adding the original game to Nintendo Switch.
It’s great to see Nintendo Switch becoming a safe haven for classic Star Wars games. They added some iconic games like Jedi Academy, Racers, and even Republic Commando. So, the addition of a classic franchise like Knights of the Old Republic makes sense. There is no word if the sequel will also get added, but they might be wanting to keep that for next year as a follow-up release. Either way, it’s great to revisit some classic games and the Nintendo Switch is becoming the home for many classic gaming franchises moving forward.
