Star Wars Republic Commando has officially be confirmed for the Nintendo Switch and PS4 systems. Aspyr has posted this news on their website, and it looks like the game will also be releasing on April 6, 2021. It doesn’t appear that there will be a physical version of the game, but you can of course purchase Star Wars Republic Commando from the Switch eShop.
Check out the trailer:
In Star Wars Republic Commando, you’ve got your trusty blaster rifle and your squad of elite clone troopers at your side. The game adds a tactical layer to the first person shooter genre with squad commands.
You’ll play as Delta Squad leader RC-1138, AKA Delta Three-Eight, AKA “Boss,” but no clone is alone. The squad is your weapon, especially when you call the shots with maneuvers. Sure, your squadmates can maintain formation and execute tactics on their own, but the key to success is directing your squad to victory.
These maneuvers include commands to perform special tasks like demolitions or door breaches, search and destroy commands, and calls for your squad to form-up behind you. Your squad can even revive you when you fall in battle!
A Superfan’s delight
You may not have played Star Wars Republic Commando, but you might recognize Delta Squad from the TV show Star Wars: The Clone Wars in the episode “Witches From the Mist.” Fun fact: this is the first appearance of a clone commando unit in that series!
Of course, that’s not the only connection Delta Squad has to the Star Wars universe at large. Boba Fett, Jango Fett, and fearless Delta Squad leader Delta Three-Eight have all been voiced by Temuera Morrison, who recently reprised the role of Boba Fett in season two of The Mandalorian.
