Taking place in the aftermath of Return of the Jedi, this latest Star Wars gameplay will connect players in real-time for battles in maps inspired by the franchise’s iconic locales. The trailer showcases a battle between a Sith warrior and a Mandalorian bounty hunter that grows larger as several other characters, including Stormtroopers and a droid with the moniker J-3D1, join in on the chaos.
The game, which was first announced during the February 2021 Nintendo Direct, is set on the planet Vespaara, where hunters from all over the Star Wars galaxy convene for team-based brawls. Playable characters include a “dark side warrior” named Rieve, a Mandalorian hunter named Aran Tal and a Wookie.
Star Wars: Hunters will be free to download for the Nintendo Switch, on the App Store and on Google Play in 2022. Players will be able to register early and gain access to exclusive in-game content prior to its release. The game will not require a Nintendo Switch Online membership to download.
