A surprise to be sure, but a welcome one.

Now THIS is podracing! The Nintendo 64 classic Star Wars: Episode I Racer is coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, announced today.

The cult classic was originally released in 1999 on Nintendo 64 and was immensely popular in its time, and for many people is the best memory they may have of The Phantom Menace. Playable characters included young Anakin Skywalker, Sebulba, and Ratts Tyerell. The game was also released on Windows, and was eventually ported to Game Boy Color, Macintosh and Dreamcast.
