Nightdive Studios — renowned video game remaster studio and subsidiary of Atari®, one of the world’s most iconic consumer brands and interactive entertainment producers — in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games, today released Star Wars™: Dark Forces Remaster on digital storefronts for Switch.

Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster has been brought to life by the team at Nightdive Studios, fully remastered through its proprietary KEX engine, allowing the game to run on modern gaming devices at up to 4K resolution at 120FPS. New and returning players will enjoy Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster’s upgraded gameplay, high-resolution textures, enhanced lighting and rendering, and support for console gamepads with platform-specific features.

The original 1995 Star Wars: Dark Forces raised the bar for first-person shooter (FPS) games, offering players a significant degree of movement and interactivity, a large selection of items and power-ups, and engaging environments. Now, for the first time ever, Star Wars: Dark Forces is available on Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo, making the game available to a new generation of gamers and Star Wars fans.

In the first Star Wars FPS video game, players assume the role of Kyle Katarn, a defector of the Galactic Empire turned mercenary for hire. Katarn joins the Rebel Alliance’s covert operations division tasked with infiltrating the Galactic Empire, where he discovers the secret Dark Trooper Project. The development of this powerful new series of Imperial battle droids and power-armored stormtroopers stands to strengthen the Empire’s grip on the galaxy unless Katarn and the Rebel Alliance intervene.
