At GamesCom 2009, G4 caught up with Chris Cook from LucasArts, and he showed us around upcoming PSP and DS title Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron. This handheld edition of the popular series brings gamers right back to the Star Wars Universe, and it's on the DS for the first time ever! Along with showing off the game,
Cook explained how Elite Squadron fits into the progression of the series:
"The first game was all about letting players take part in the epic battles from the Star Wars movies, like Hoth and Endor... Battlefront 2 added space combat, so some levels had you flying around in a tie fighter or X-wing... For Renegade Squadron, we added customization. For Elite Squadron we’re taking all of those ideas from the first games and blowing them out like never before. It’s the biggest Battlefront game we’ve ever made, and Elite Squadron offers some really cool new features we're really excited about."
