LucasArts and Traveler's Tales Games today announced the development of Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars. The game will be playable on the Wii, DS, PlayStation 3, PSP, PC and 360 -- so basically every format. Look for it this fall.
The game will feature all the characters from both seasons of The Clone Wars TV show, as well as appearances from "fan-favorite" characters from the movies. Hopefully that means Boba Fett and not Jar Jar Binks. You'll be able to play either as a Jedi or Separatist with new character abilities, such as "Squad command, Lightsaber slicing, Lightsaber jumps, long distance Jedi attacks and Grapple Tie-Ups."
That's not all, though. Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars will also feature "brand new battle modes, giving players unique, head-to-head combat and an upgraded level builder, allowing the creation of customized bases and in-game battlefields."
Personally, I loved the Lego Star Wars games -- the bright colors, the mindless brick smashing, the funny take on beloved characters -- but I couldn't "get into" Lego Indie. As for The Clone Wars, I dunno. I'm not super familiar with the series, but I'll give this game a go when it comes out. What do you think?
