The Next Phase of Star Wars: The High Republic

In the above special episode of "Star Wars: The High Republic Show," host Krystina Arielle celebrates the one-year anniversary of "The High Republic" with special guests, including all five original "High Republic" authors, and some exciting details about second phase of "The High Republic."

Phase II of "Star Wars: The High Republic" will be called "Quest of the Jedi" and takes place 150 years before the events of Phase I's "Light of the Jedi" (and 350 years before the events of "The Phantom Menace"). Phase II arrives in October 2022 with new stories by Zoraida Córdova, George Mann, Lydia Kang, and Tessa Gratton. 

Córdova previously wrote stories for the "From a Certain Point of View" books plus the Galaxy's Edge novel "A Crash of Fate," while Mann wrote "Star Wars: Myths and Fables" as well as the High Republic story "Showdown at the Fair."  Lydia Kang wrote a short story for "From a Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back," which focused on medical droid 2-1B. Tessa Gratton isn't a published "Star Wars" author yet, but she is currently working on the upcoming "Stories of Jedi and Sith" anthology.

Cavan Scott will be writing a new series for Marvel Comics, while Daniel José Older will be writing a series for Dark Horse Comics. Charles Soule will also be writing an origin story for Jedi Porter Engle, revealing how he became known as the Blade of Bardotta. Another announcement is that Justina Ireland's novel "Star Wars: The High Republic – Mission to Disaster" will include several connections to The High Republic Phase II when it releases on March 1, 2022, but exactly what those connections are is unclear.

Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic Remake Updates

Last September, it was announced that Aspyr Media is developing a remake of "Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic," BioWare's classic 2003 video game. Aspyr has even hired some former BioWare staff to assist with the remake's development, including developers who worked on the original RPG and its successor, the 2011 MMO "Star Wars: The Old Republic."

YouTuber MrMattyPlays recently posted the above video which recaps everything that's been announced about the game in addition to a few possible scoops of his own. According to Matty, Aspyr is looking to overhaul the original game's combat system so it resembles that action-RPG like "God of War" (2018) and "Nioh 2" (2020) for inspiration. Aspyr has decided to re-record the game's soundtrack, though we don't know if this means the soundtrack will include new material or if it will just be a note-for note re-recording of the original compositions.

Matty's sources also claim that swoop racing and Pazaak, two minigames from the original title, will return as well. Finally, Matty reports that the remake will feature some kind of new content — new side quests, new characters — but no specifics yet. While Matty has been correct with some of his previous claims about the remake, these scoops aren't confirmed and should be considered rumors until we hear more from Aspyr and Lucasfilm Games.
