Star Wars: Episode 1 Racer


Original Story: After stumbling a few times off the starting block, Star Wars: Episode 1 Racer is finally preparing to launch. Aspyr Media, which is publishing the remake of the classic racer, announced that it's coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch on June 23.




Star Wars: Episode 1 Racer



The Nintendo 64 was a glorious system for Star Wars games. Nearly every Star Wars game released on the platform has gone down in history as a pivotal title. Episode 1: Racer is no exception. Originally released in 1999 for not only the Nintendo 64, but also the Sega Dreamcast and Microsoft Windows, it fed off the hype surrounding the start of the Star Wars prequels. It allowed us to experience an expanded view of this new Star Wars time period while being a darn good futuristic racer to boot. Aspyr has brought this classic title to Switch and while the port itself may be pretty bare bones, Racer is still holds up as an absolutely thrilling racing game.


  • Choose from 25 playable racers including: Anakin Skywalker, Sebulba, and Ratts Tyerell

  • Race tracks spanning 8 unique worlds including: Tatooine, Baroonda, and Malastare

  • Work with Pit Droids to upgrade your podracer for higher top speeds and acceleration

  • Discover short-cuts and secrets to master your lap times.



Star Wars Episode 1 is an arcade racer where fast reactions are needed to prevent your pod from crashing into a wall and exploding as you hit rocket-ship speeds. The controls are simple. On Switch, you accelerate with ZR and brake with ZL. The R button will repair your pod when it starts overheating. The only other mechanic is turbo, which can be done by holding the left joystick forwarding and pressing A when the bulb on the speed bar turns yellow.


Do you have the GOG version? Usually CD Projekt improves compatibility when publishing games on their storefront. Check out the game's dedicated forum on GOG for help with your issues: _wars_episode_i_racer#1564845271 041b061a72
