The Nintendo Switch port of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II doesn’t get the free Restored Content DLC that developer Aspyr Media promised at launch, the company announced on Twitter late yesterday. Instead, the studio is offering a consolation prize of free Star Wars game keys to anyone who’s purchased the game, which Aspyr says can be done through the support page (although it’s not specified how).
The apology games contain the original KOTOR switching port, COTOR II on steam, Star Wars: Episode I Racer, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, and others.
The Restored Content DLC started out as a fan-made mod that included parts of the game that were cut from the original release, as some considered the game in its published form to be incomplete.
Aspyr’s Switch port of COTOR II was somehow even less complete at launch. You couldn’t actually beat the game. The developer admitted to being aware of the problem and released a fix the following month. After that flawed performance and poor showing at a demo with Lucasfilm and Sony, Aspyr’s parent company, Embracer Group, shook the gate of the first Knights of the Old Republic game over to Saber Interactive, citing a desire to “make sure the quality bar is where we need it for the title.”
We have reached out to Aspyr for more information and will update if we receive a response.
