A “Restored Content” expansion for Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords is in the works for the Nintendo Switch version of the game.
It was announced during this year’s Star Wars Celebration Day that Obsidian RPG will be coming to Nintendo Switch on June 8th. Porting studio Aspyr has developed it for Nintendo’s portable platform, which will offer improved resolution and performance enhancements.
Fans of the franchise, on the other hand, are more excited about the prospect of an official Restored Content DLC. Some of the original game’s material was deleted from the main game and left in its files when it was launched in 2004 after just a year of development. That material has now been edited and refined by fans into the much-loved Restored Content mod (opens in a new tab), bringing the lost elements back into the game.
Switch Restored Material DLC is expected to include all of the omitted content as an official update. If all goes according to plan, it’ll be the first official release and console availability for this material.
However, there are still some unanswered questions. If the DLC includes all of Star Wars: The Old Republic’s 2’s missing material, how it’ll be incorporated, and how it stacks up against the fan-made version are all questions that remain unanswered. As soon as the expansion becomes live, we’ll have further information.
Porter’s shadow is cast by the Mass
Several iconic Star Wars games have been released for the Nintendo Switch in the previous several years. In November of last year, Aspyr launched a version of the original Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic for the Nintendo Switch. Additionally, it will release Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy for the Switch and PlayStation 4 in 2020, and most recently converted The Force Unleashed to Nintendo’s portable in April.
There’s a good chance that further Star Wars ports are in the pipeline. If there’s enough demand, Aspyr has already said that it’s interested in porting starfighter shooter Rogue Squadron to contemporary technology. It’s already working on the planned remake of Knights of the Old Republic and publishing Beamdog’s roguelike MythForce, which takes inspiration from Dungeons & Dragons.
The planned Knights of the Old Republic Switch port, on the other hand, is unique. It will not only bring a classic RPG to a current-generation system, but it may also showcase the finest version of the game to date. If the Restored Content DLC is as extensive as the fan-made version and has all the refinement of an official production, it might depict The Sith Lords in a way that has never been seen before..
