Star Wars: Bounty Hunter remake from Aspyr set for August Release

‘Star Wars: Bounty Hunter’, the third person action game starring Jango Fett, will get a remake from Aspyr this August.

Aspyr describe the improvements as “a new title that brings the original ‘Star Wars: Bounty’ Hunter to modern platforms with visual enhancements, improved environmental textures, new dynamic lighting effects, and a new flashlight tool.”

The remake will also include a Boba Fett skin as part of an Easter Egg from the original game.

The game is set for an August 1 release on the Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and on Steam for PC. 

The game will cost $19.99, and pricing outside the USA hasn’t been announced yet. 

It sees players take control of the iconic bounty hunter Jango Fett during the time between ‘The Phantom Menace’ and ‘Attack of the Clones’ as Count Dooku and Darth Sidious look to recruit him for the clone template.

‘Star Wars: Bounty Hunter’ originally released in 2002 on the PlayStation 2 and GameCube

Aspyr, which is part of Embracer Group, have released a ‘Star Wars’ remakes, most recently the original two ‘Star Wars: Battlefront’ games in the ‘Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection’ which was riddled with bugs and server issues at launch.

They also cancelled expected DLC for ‘Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 – The Sith Lords’ which would have restored lost content. 

The developers were also working on a remake of ‘Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic’, before development stalled and was handed to Saber Interactive.

‘Star Wars: Bounty Hunter’ isn’t the only ‘Star Wars’ game this year to delve deep into the criminal underside of the ‘Star Wars’ universe, with ‘Star Wars: Outlaws’ from Ubisoft releasing at the end of August.
