Limited Run Announces the Release Date for Star Wars Racer Games

Earlier this year, Limited Run Games partnered up with Lucasfilm to re-release several classic Star Wars games. So far, the successful run has included several NES, SNES, and Nintendo 64 releases. But now, the company is literally shifting into high gear with two Star Wars racing titles that go on sale later this week.

Limited Run announced the latest titles on Twitter. The first is Star Wars Episode I: Racer for Nintendo 64, which was originally released in 1999. This new version has a special blue cartridge design. Gamers can buy it starting this Friday, October 18. Unfortunately, it’s only available in limited numbers.

The company is also re-releasing Star Wars Racer Revenge, which arrived on the PlayStation 2 in 2002. The game received a digital release on the PlayStation 4 in 2016. However, this marks the first time it will get a physical release for PS4 consoles. It will also be available this Friday.

When the games go on sale through Limited Run’s website, fans will have a few different options to choose from. The standard version of Star Wars Racer Revenge is priced at $29.99, while Episode I: Racer‘s classic edition costs $44.99.

Of course, die-hard Star Wars fans will most likely pursue the collector’s editions for each title. The premium edition for Episode I: Racer costs $89.99, and comes with a collectible pin and coin, a full color manual, and a special edition box. Meanwhile, Star Wars Racer Revenge’s premium edition retails for $74.99. It comes packaged in a specially-designed box featuring a podracing vehicle on the front, embossed in yellow and grey. It also includes a collectible steelbook case and a limited edition poster. The games are expected to sell out quickly once they go on sale, so act fast.
