Star Wars: Bounty Hunter remaster is coming in August, and fans are more than a little nervous after the disastrous Battlefront Classic Collection

Star Wars: Bounty Hunter, originally released in 2002 for the PlayStation 2 and GameCube, is finally coming to PC. Aspyr Media announced today that an updated version of the game is set to arrive on August 1.

2002 was the year of Attack of the Clones, the film that made an instant Star Wars star of Jango Fett, father to Boba and «Prime Clone of the Grand Army of the Republic.» (Star Wars fans just can't get enough of the Fett fam.)

The updated version of the game finally gets the job done: After completing the campaign, a newly-added Boba Fett skin will unlock for future playthroughs.

Aspyr's recent track record has some Star Wars fans a little apprehensive about this one. The studio did a great job with Tomb Raider 1-3 Remastered, but the Star Wars: Battlefront Classic Collection was an absolute train wreck. Aspyr
