Appropriately for May the 4th, this week’s eShop update is features some interesting Star Wars content. Over the years the Switch has received plenty of ports of older Star Wars games, and now they’re bundling them all together in the STAR WARS Heritage Pack. The bundle includes STAR WARS Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, STAR WARS Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, STAR WARS Episode I Racer, STAR WARS Republic Commando, STAR WARS: The Force Unleashed, STAR WARS: Knights of the Old Republic and STAR WARS: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, all of which are worth playing (even KOTOR II, which had its game-breaking bugs patched).
In addition, Fortnite fans will get to embrace their inner Jedi, as the game is adding Find the Force quests. You’ll be able to unlock Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker as your Jedi trainers or Darth Maul as your Sith trainer, and use Force abilities like Force Push, Force Pull and Force Throw.
There’s plenty of non-Star Wars content too, so see the full list below, and also check out Nintendo’s updated Game Store list, here.
