12 Awesome Star Wars Games That Need New Remakes
Over the past 40 years, there have been an avalanche of Star Wars video games—the series got popular right around the time video games were starting up. There have been games featuring events from the movies and their characters, as well as all new adventures. Fans were willing to play anything they could get their hands on while waiting for new movies, especially in the long years between trilogies.
There have been some great games, and some not-so-great games. There have also been some games that have been good ideas that didn't work out, or games that were great when they released, but age has made them less fun or accessible. So here's 12 Star Wars titles that we feel would make great new games if they got a remake or HD remaster.
12. Jedi Arena (1983)
Although the gameplay was simple, the idea of doing Jedi training is great.
Originally released for the Atari 2600, this game was pretty simple: two Jedi Knights squaring off against one another with the training remote droid in the middle firing random laser blasts. Players had to deflect shots towards the droid or at their opponent using the Atari's paddle controller. This blaster-deflecting is a common training we see for Jedi in the movie, and the ability to dodge and reflect attacks is a basic Jedi skill.
A remake for Jedi Arena on one of the VR headsets would be amazing. It could be as simple as using the controllers to move your lightsaber to deflect, or could feature a bunch of Force-based puzzles to solve, almost like Portal. The setting could even be the Trials, which a Padawan trainee must complete in order to become a Jedi Knight.
