Star Wars: Rogue Squadron director shares his wish list for “Ultimate” Switch remaster

The director of the Star Wars: Rogue Squadron series wants to see lots of Nintendo Wii features in any remaster for Switch.

A conversation was sparked on Twitter (below) after a fan asked Aspyr – the developer behind other Star Wars Switch remasters including Jedi Knight II and The Force Unleashed – if there would ever be a new version of Rogue Squadron.

Aspyr said he’d happily do it if fan demand was there, prompting Rogue Squadron series director Julian Eggebrecht to unwind his wish-list for the ultimate version.

It includes many features from the unreleased Wii version of Rogue Squadron, the fourth and final iteration that was in development but was discontinued due to legal issues between LucasArts and its game developers.

“The one for Switch should be the ultimate villain, exploiting the last bit of the Wii,” he said. “All controllers from Pro to Wheel, all levels from Leader and Strike in one as intended, fixed and remixed.”

But that’s not all – Eggebrecht also wants to see multiplayer modes, 1:1 gyro lightsaber combat, 60 fps and an additional remaster of the N64 game “with the highly detailed ship models of the Wii and updated textures and shaders”.

Every Star Wars game in development

IGN was a big fan of the arcade-style air combat gameplay in Rogue Squadron. We said the first and third games were great, while the second was awesome.

In our 9/10 review, IGN said, “Rogue Leader is a bigger, badder, and much more visually flamboyant version of the N64 Rogue Squadron before it.”
