Star Wars: Hunters launches on Nintendo Switch and mobile

Star Wars: Hunters - A New Era of Competitive Gaming

Zynga and LucasFilm Games have launched Star Wars: Hunters worldwide. The new free-to-play competitive battle arena game is available on Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android devices.

In the competitive battle arena game, Star Wars: Hunters, teams of four Hunters compete for glory in the Arena on the planet Vespaara. Inspired by classic Star Wars archetypes, each Hunter boasts a unique moveset and abilities. The diverse cast includes J-3DI, a droid who believes he is a Jedi, and Utooni, a pair of Jawas stacked atop one another in a trenchcoat.

“We are thrilled to finally welcome fans across the globe to Vespaara and introduce them to our incredible lineup of Hunters,” said Zynga VP Sam Cooper. “Matches in our game are easy to hop into, but hard to master. We can’t wait to see the action as players duke it out in the Arena. Good luck, the galaxy is watching!”

Star Wars Hunters features several game modes at launch. These include the classic team death match mode, Squad Brawl, and Trophy Chase, where squads aim to control the elusive droid TR0-F33.

“With Star Wars: Hunters, we’re inviting fans to a new destination in the Outer Rim to experience a larger than-life expression of the Star Wars galaxy unlike any we’ve seen before,” said Douglas Reilly, VP of Lucasfilm Games. “We can’t wait for players to discover the cast of Hunters and team up with friends to fight in the Arena.”

Zynga and Lucasfilm Games are teasing their plans for future editions on social media. Fans should expect more news in the coming weeks.

The developers originally announced Star Wars: Hunters in February 2021 during a Nintendo Direct event with an anticipated 2022 launch. After several delays, fans can now play Star Wars: Hunters on Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android.
