Star Wars: Republic Commando for Switch pops up on Nintendo eShop server

2005 squad shooter up for re-release?

Star Wars: Republic Commando could be the next classic Star Wars title in line for a Nintendo Switch re-release, following the discovery of an update for the 2005 title by NWPlayer123.

The dataminer noticed a patch for the unannounced title has been released on the eShop servers, suggesting that the squad-based shooter will be hitting the digital storefront in the very near future. The patch is attributable to publisher Aspyr, who are previously responsible for Star Wars re-releases such as Star Wars: Episode I Racer, Star Wars: Jedi Knight – Jedi Academy, and Star Wars: Jedi Knight II – Jedi Outcast.

Originally released on PC and Xbox, Star Wars: Republic Commando blended typical first-person shooter action, with tactical commands and squad-based teamwork. Released to mostly positive reviews, the title was intended to kick off a franchise, but ultimately spawned no sequels, though it did receive a number of spin-off novels.
