It has been 16 years since Republic Commando first released and this year, it looks like the game might make a comeback. The highly regarded Star Wars FPS appears to be coming to Nintendo Switch soon.
Republic Commando was a first-person shooter, putting players in a clone squad in the middle of the Clone Wars. According to a Nintendo eShop dataminer, the game will soon be making its way over to the Nintendo Switch:

As we can see from the tweet above, Aspyr Media has recently updated a version of Republic Commando on the Nintendo Switch eShop. There is no indication of a release date, but we should know more within the next few months.
Aspyr Media has worked on plenty of older Star Wars titles over the years, including more recent ports of Knights of the Old Republic 1 & 2, as well as Episode 1 Racer, which came to the Switch last year.
KitGuru Says: Republic Commando is one of my favourite Star Wars games, so I’d love to see it make a comeback. Did many of you play this one back in the day? Would you revisit it if it was re-released on modern consoles?
