If you8217;ve seen your way through Jedi: Fallen Order and you8217;re missing your Star Wars gaming fix, another title from the galaxy far, far away is making a return.
The experience translated into a fun, fast-paced sci-fi racing game that resembled F-Zero X. It offered a great control system, more than 20 varied tracks and 25 playable podracers (yes, including the boy wonder Anakin Skywalker). Gameplay might have taken precedence over graphics, but this was a highly enjoyable outing in the Star Wars series.

Now the game, which was a top seller at the time, is making a timely return thanks to the good folks at Aspyr, which recently released the new version of Jedi Academy. The main upgrade to the title seems to be new controls, optimised for newer consoles.
“The beloved game has been modernized for the most optimal gaming experience on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4,8221; said the company’s VP of publishing, Elizabeth Howard. 8220;Star Wars fans should get ready to steer their racer to victory and leave their opponents in the dust.”
It8217;ll be downloadable for $15 (UK price TBC) on May 12. We can8217;t wait to take down Sebulba and win our freedom. Whether we8217;ll be able to go to fulfil our destiny and slay some younglings remains to be seen.
In a post on the PlayStation blog, the developer added: 8220;If you’re new to Star Wars Episode I: Racer, the only word you need to know is speed. This game is all about the speed and fans of Star Wars: Racer Revenge will be pleased to see that the original delivered on the promise of exceeding 600 MPH. Racing purists will drift through turns, discover shortcuts, and break lap records, while kart-racing fans will defer to bumping, smashing, or even using Sebulba’s secret flame jets to knock opponents out of the race.8221;
