Now this is Podracing! Aspyr has announced that after releasing 1999 cult classic Star Wars Episode 1: Racer on Nintendo Switch and PS4 earlier this year, the game is finally arriving on Xbox for the first time.

In fact, it's available right now!

If you've never played it, Star Wars Episode 1: Racer is based on the Podracing sequence from the 1999 film Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace, and allows you to race as one of 25 characters (including young Anakin Skywalker) across tracks spanning eight different worlds such as the iconic Tatooine.

Here's what Elizabeth Howard, vice president of publishing at Aspyr had to say about the release:

“We released Star Wars Episode l: Racer on Switch and PS4 earlier this year and were thrilled to see the positive response among those playing for the first time, as well as fans of the original, all of whom couldn’t get enough of this adrenaline-pumping favorite.

“Now, we’re finally bringing it to the Xbox fans so they can join the race, put the pedal to the metal, and experience a beloved classic Star Wars game.”
