Star Wars Episode I: Racer returns on PS4 and Switch in May


So Wizard!

Perhaps the one positive to come out of 1999's Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, (although I kinda like Darth Maul), is the great Star Wars Episode I: Racer. It looks like we're all going to get another chance to re-run the fun, as Aspyr Media's remaster of the classic N64 mainstay will launch on PS4 and Nintendo Switch May 12.

Previously available on PC, N64, Game Boy and in the arcades, Episode I: Racer featured all of the characters and vehicles from the film's famous pod-racing sequence, as well as numerous tracks situated on Tatooine and other planets within the Star Wars universe.

Aspyr's remaster will feature a 4K resolution, (although the game will feature the original textures and vehicle models). Episode I: Racer also boasts an overhauled control system, better suited to both the DualShock 4 and the Nintendo Joy-Con, as well as a brand new list of trophies.

Star Wars Episode I: Racer launches on PS4 and Nintendo Switch May 12... when May 4 was right there. It is expected to retail for around $15. Meesa excited!
