Years ago, Factor 5 was working on a Wii game called Star Wars Rogue Leaders: Rogue Squadron. However, multiple reasons resulted in the project being cancelled. Well, Factor 5 president Julian Eggebrecht recently talked to IGN in an interview, where Eggebrecht revealed that the team still wants to release the game. Not only that, but Eggebrecht says that they want to port the game to the Switch. Here’s what Eggebrecht had to say:
“It’s something in some way, shape, or form, should definitely come out of the archives. I think it’s just about the willingness of probably us spending some time on it, Disney/Lucasfilm playing along with it, and probably EA must be a little in the mix.
My immediate dream would be to first port basically what we had on Rogue Squadron Wii to the Switch. Rogue Squadron Wii pretty much supported every single input device. So in spirit it’s very comparable to what Nintendo did with Mario Odyssey, or even more so Mario Kart. …the whole subsection with the duels, you could only play with a Motion Plus, because we needed 1:1 mapping
(It’s just a matter of getting) the gang together. They’re all around. Our lead artist, who did the look so unbelievably right, basically spent half his time at Skywalker ranch designing for George [Lucas] on the movies. The models still hold up. I don’t think on those models you would see much of a difference between what EA created later.”
