Sad news for eager Star Wars and retro-gamers, as Aspyr has announced the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 remaster of Episode I: Racer has been delayed.
Even though the game was originally slated to arrive tomorrow, we won’t be able to fire up our podracers and dive back onto the race track in a galaxy far, far away. The developers behind the remaster of Episode I: Racer just made the following statement:
We are so excited to share Star Wars Episode l: Racer with you soon! Unfortunately, due to the ongoing work from home requirements across the industry, the game will be further delayed on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. We’ll be back with an update as soon as possible.
While I was looking forward to getting my hands on this one (the original is one of my all-time favorite Star Wars games), the delay is completely understandable. While there’s no new release date given, I don’t think we’ll have to wait terribly long for it. As more news comes in, we’ll be sure to keep you updated!
