LucasArts announces a new installment for the Star Wars: Battlefront franchise heading for the Nintendo DS and PSP. Dubbed Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron, fans of the series can expect the rousing multiplayer shooting gameplay to return with a single player campaign focused on Force-sensitive clones X1 and X2.
"Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron features a deep and engrossing single player campaign that spans the entire Star Wars Saga - and beyond. Gamers assume the identity of X2, a clone trooper created from the DNA of a Jedi Master. Originally tasked with eliminating Jedi during Order 66, X2 decides to leave his blood-stained past behind and joins the Rebellion. X2 isn't the only Force-sensitive clone, however. X1, his clone brother, chooses a much more sinister path, leading to a confrontation that could determine the fate of both the Empire and the Rebellion."
Rebellion will be handling the PSP version which features 16 player multiplayer battles with developer n-Space taking charge of the Nintendo DS copy which will allow a slimmer 4 player multi option when game ships later in the Fall.
