If you’re old enough to recall the crushing disappointment that was Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace then you’ll no doubt recall the highlight of that particular film – the excellent podracing sequence.
That section was turned into not one but two different video games. Sega produced an amazing arcade version, while LucasArts itself created a different version – Star Wars Episode I: Racer – that released on the N64, Dreamcast and PC.
During today’s surprise Nintendo Direct, it was revealed that the game is getting remade for the Nintendo Switch. There’s no word on when it will launch, but fans of the original version will no doubt be getting excited already. If you’re one of those people, let us know with a comment below.
