It was released for the Nintendo64 in December 2000 and a Windows port was released three months later in March 2001. The Nintendo64 version was heavily compared to Rogue Squadron and received generally positive reviews. The PC port was less well-received, with critics citing poor visuals and difficult controls.

A TIE fighter based on a 1969 Buick Electra 225 can be unlocked via a password only available in the game. It can also be unlocked when the player enters the correct passwords or achieves all gold or platinum medals, respectively, on all levels. The Sithator, a Speeder Speeder, and an AAT Speeder may be selected when the players enter the correct password or achieve all gold and platinum medals on all Levels 1 and 2. It also includes a number of unlockable secrets, such as the “Trade Federation Encounter” and “Coruscant Encounter” levels, which are made available when player obtains all bronze or gold medals, on every level.

It will be released worldwide in the United States and in Australia in the spring of 2015, with a release date to be announced later in the year for Europe and North America in the summer of 2015. The U.S. release date has yet to be revealed, but is expected to be in the mid-to-late stages of the series. It features 15 levels, each of which has different mission objectives that must be completed to progress to the next level. Depending on the level, the player can control several different air, land, and water vehicles. Each vehicle offers a unique armament arrangement, as well as varying degrees of speed and maneuverability. Bonus power-ups that improve these crafts’ weapons or durability are hidden in different levels throughout the game, and are applied to each eligible craft for the remainder of thegame. If a player’s performance exceeds one of the level’s four benchmarks in all five categories, a medal—bronze, silver, gold, or platinum—is awarded on completion. Some levels offer the player the option to change craft mid-level.
