Star Wars: KOTR Remake Confirmed By Leading Insider

The Star Wars: KOTR remake confirmed by leading insider Jason Schreier!

A while ago we published a rumor that KOTR, (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic) was being remade. You can find the full coverage of that initial story in the related section below. However since that story broke, everything has gone super quiet. Fans had started to wonder whether the rumor was false, despite significant evidence to begin with. The presenter of the MinnMax show on YouTube had Jason Schreier on for a chat and asked him whether it really was false? Schreier is so far inside the games industry that companies backlisted his former site Kotaku due to his leaks being so accurate. In other words, if Schreier hadn’t heard about it, it’s not happening.

However, as per the tile, it turns out he has heard about the Star Wars: KOTR remake after all. MinnMax very kindly edited this short video for social media below so you can check it out for yourself.

I’ll echo what most fans are saying today. This is all but confirmation that Star Wars: KOTR remake is being developed. However, what exactly will that remake entail? The story was lauded in the original, but the gameplay was very old school turn based RPG. As much as turn based RPG’s are still really popular, they are also a niche market. For every gamer who loves their Japanese RPG’s you have a gamer like me who cannot stand them.

Therefore, we have some fans now hoping for a pure remake with the assets only improved. And, you also have gamers, like me, who want to keep the storytelling but turn it into an action RPG where I can fight by myself. I personally think a movie to action RPG would open the remake up to greater sales. But then, I could be wrong and this would turn away the purists who have wanted this game remade for so long?

Sadly for now, we have zero details and no clue when we might get some. What I think we can say for sure now though, is that Star Wars: KOTR remake is happening, and will release one day. Share any thoughts you have about the Star Wars: KOTR remake in the usual place below.
