The classic Stars Wars shooter Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy finally made its cross-platform debut earlier this week. Initially released in 2003 as a Microsoft exclusive, the first- and third-person shooter is now officially also available for the Sony PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch.
Jedi Academy puts young and aspiring Force-users to the test with Jedi Master Luke Skywalker. Players embark on plot-driven and user-selected missions to advance their Force powers to the highest level. Once you have perfected the ways of the Force, you can continue to fight for good with the Jedi or turn to the dark side, favoring power and evil.
The port features the same customization options as the original game, giving you various ways to tweak your character — from species to gender. As you progress through the game, you’ll also be able to switch your lightsaber for either dual lightsabers or a double-bladed staff akin to the one famously wielded by Sith Lord Darth Maul.
