YESSSSS! Was hoping for this to get announced at the June direct. It seems that exclusive ports on switch are working well, as this is the third in a row.

This is good news, but the launching timing is rubbish for me. The fact that the restored content is coming later as DLC also means I won't buy on day one; but I do look forward to eventually having this on Switch. KOTOR kicked off my 2022 on Switch so having the sequel to play later this year, plus restored content for the first time for me, is good.

Oh damn they're adding the restored content? KOTOR 2 was an ambitious but highly flawed game, but I hear that the restored content really kicks it up a notch

it's a fan mod that Aspyr took up. all the content is in the game already anyway
This.

Allegedly the concept of releasing it as a patch/DLC was something Obsidian themselves was considering back when it first launched, but it was dropped by Lucasarts because the Xbox version wouldn't be able to receive it (This was when Xbox Live support had to be directly integrated into the game for it to work, as there was no marketplace accessible through the dashboard.)

Good, good…

Still have to pick up KotOR1, but this will make a fine addition to my collection. Haven't played those games in a long time.

File size is 15.8 GB, I don’t know much about these games but it’s pretty crazy how much space they take despite being from the 6th gen. I thought my 200 GB SD card would be enough for every game on my radar, I guess I’ll have to uninstall Fortnite and other mid stuff

Will definitely pick them up eventually, those games had a lot of hype and would somewhat fill my WRPG blindspot. Crazy how many former Xbox (console) exclusives Switch end up getting. Apparently the first game on Switch only had this huge textbox problem that has been patched, will for sure pick it up on the next sale/when I’m done with what I’m currently playing

I loved the first one back in the day, can't remember if i played the second one to the end.
I'll pick it up after the restored content is launched, maybe even on a sale because i want to focus on Xenoblade 3 when it releases 🙂.

Really happy both KOTOR games are on the Switch now. However, I have gotten so used to installing certain mods, it feels weird playing vanilla :D the restored content is nice though.

First game is also over 12 GB. I know they used AI upscaling on the textures, not sure but maybe the FMV as well. Anyway, that's probably what's to blame for them being 3-4x the size of the old Steam versions.

I wonder how well the Star Wars games are selling on Switch. I do hope that Rogue Squadron games are next in the porting pipeline

very well according to the eshop threads on installbase. when they released they sit on the charts for a while. KOTOR in particular lasted a good while

I guess they will port Force Unleashed 2 by fall, and then the PS2/XB Battlefront 1/2 titles somewhere in 2023. Don’t think they will touch the old NES/SNES era games. A little redundant to port the old Lego Star Wars games with how well packed the lastest game is.

And after I can see re-releasing the Rogue Squadron titles, like in 2024 or so. Its a little shame EA isn’t interested in porting the modern PS4/XBO era titles like Battlefront, Squadrons or Fallen Order.

I didn’t realize or had forgotten that the switch of 1 got upgraded textures from the Steam release. That’s pretty cool.

This is exciting. I was bummed that KotOR II wasn't available like fifteen minutes after finishing the first one for the umpteenth time.

Gimme that HK-47 factory, baby.

They have a digital bundle of both games but no discount at the moment. Love both games but have a ton of backlog so I’ll wait for a sale

Got to play the prologue and a bit into Peragus. This game immediately sets a mood.

For my money, Obsidian are far and away the best RPG devs out there and have been for a couple of decades now.

Woah, didn't realise it was out today. I think I'm going to wait until the Restored Content DLC releases, though.
