LucasArts and Traveler’s Tales embark upon another noble space quest in LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, the latest LEGO-themed game announced today.
It’ll be based on the popular cartoon program, which is a highly-stylized bridge between the events of the films “Attack of the Clones” and “Revenge of the Sith,” and if it follows in the now normative trend of excellence, we can expect a hilarious fun time in the impending adventure.
“LucasArts continues to set the bar for next-generation family entertainment,” said Darrell Rodriguez, president of LucasArts. “The LEGO Star Wars franchise is a massive hit with fans, bringing in sales of over 20 million units worldwide. We’re thrilled to extend this experience to LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, delivering the humor and fun players expect from this award winning franchise.”
The game will feature all the characters you know and love from the television show and follow the events of the first two seasons, as well as introduce a new level builder as well head-to-head combat moves and more bells and whistles to be announced later.
What’s interesting about this one, as opposed to other LEGO-based titles, is that this game will be built off a franchise whose characters are already cartoon and stylized. How will that transition work? Your guess is as good as mine.
LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars comes to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, DS, PSP, Wii and PC at a to-be-determined date this Fall.
