Nintendo fans will soon be shooting it up with a beloved Star Wars classic later this year!
Following a minor leak earlier this month, Aspyr has officially announced that Star Wars Republic Commando will be hitting the Switch eShop on 6 April 2021 for $14.99 USD. Released on the original Xbox and PC back in 2005, Republic Commando was notable for its squad-based commands that players could issue – and was especially beloved for its online multiplayer gameplay.
