Star Wars Hunters isn’t the Star Wars game we want or need, but it is the one we’re getting. Looking at the new Star Wars Hunters trailer, however, we have to admit to feeling a flicker of excitement. Not huge, but one that’s a little more noticeable after watching the last Star Wars Hunters trailer that leaked.
Star Wars Hunters release date
Star Wars Hunters is being readied for the jump to lightspeed this year on Switch, then in 2022 for other mobile devices. Many Bothan spies that visited the Nintendo and Stars Wars websites did not die to bring us this information, although one did trip over and hurt his knee.
What is Star Wars Hunters?
Star Wars Hunters is a 4v4 team-based multiplayer arena game that’s set during the fall of the Galactic Empire (somewhere between Return of the Jedi and The Mandalorian). The game will feature a cast of Star Wars characters that includes a robot bounty hunter, a renegade Stormtrooper, a lady Sith, a droid Jedi, and a wookiee – who you should let win, for obvious reasons.
Star Wars Hunters trailer
The latest Star Wars Hunters trailer is another cinematic affair, which is why it’s not worth reading too much into. We’ve still yet to see any gameplay and, being a free-to-play game developed by Zynga, we’re not going to get our hopes up too much. However, given that Nintendo appear to be willing to invest in its exclusivity – however short it may be – we can excuse ourselves a little hope. Just a little.
