Thankfully, the new versions of Star Wars Episode 1: Racer are said to include both the single-player campaign and the split-screen multiplayer mode which was in the original version, so players looking to really get that nostalgic feel can utilize a second controller and play along with someone in their own living room.

Split-screen multiplayer is something which has fallen out of favor with the majority of game developers and players over the years as the rise of online gaming and speedy internet connections took over, but there are still a large number of gamers who prefer to play with someone in person, rather than over a wifi connection, even if it does mean shrinking the available screen space.

Indeed there are still some of those peoples (including myself) who loves a good old-fashioned manual multiplayer gameplay. Hopefully with this game release, the “tradition” will still continue. So what do you think about this guys?
