Star Wars: Rogue Squadron – what can we expect with future updates?

The director of the Star Wars: Rogue Squadron series wants to see a lot 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 it would ever make a new version of Rogue Squadron.

Aspyr said it would love to if fan demand was there, prompting Rogue Squadron series director Julian Eggebrecht to reel off his wishlist for the ultimate version.

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

“The one for Switch should be the ultimate Rogue using every last bit of the Wii.” he said. “All controller from Pro to wheel, all levels from Leader and Strike in one as intended, fixed and remixed.”

That’s not all though – Eggebrecht also wants to see multiplayer modes, 1:1 gyro lightsaber combat, 60fps, plus an additional remaster of the N64 game “with the high detail ship models from the Wii, and updated textures and shaders.”

MM was a big fan of the arcade-style dogfighting gameplay in Rogue Squadron. We said the first and third games were great, while the second one was amazing.

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

Star Wars: Rogue Squadron is an upcoming Star Wars film planned to be released on December 22, 2023
