[News] [NDS] [Wii]

So I was out on a date tonight and when I returned I noticed that not a single person here at Generation: Gamerz had picked up on this story...a story that I foretold a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... or something.

So since no one else could be bothered, check out the motion-sensing light sabre news I found. 

 LucasArts today announced Star Wars: The Clone Wars will blast its way onto the Wii and Nintendo DS in Holiday 2008. Bringing an entirely new look and feel to the galaxy far, far away, Star Wars: The Clone Wars combines the cinematic qualities of the Star Wars movies with state-of-the-art computer-generated imagery from artists at Lucasfilm Animation.

Star Wars The Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels, in development by Krome Studios exclusively for the Wii, delivers fun-filled Lightsaber battles for the entire family while it immerses players in the characters, locations, and epic duels from the all-new Star Wars animated TV series. Built from the ground-up for the Wii, Lightsaber Duels features an intuitive motion-controlled combat system that puts the Lightsaber weapon in your hand for non-stop fun.

Star Wars The Clone Wars: Jedi Alliance, developed exclusively for the Nintendo DS by the LucasArts Singapore team in conjunction with Lucasfilm Animation, lets gamers experience the awesome power when two Jedi join forces to fight as one. With an innovative stylus-based input, controlling the Jedi’s movement and engaging in Lightsaber combat has never felt more immersive.

The world premiere trailer for the games will debut exclusively on Spike TV’s “Game Trailers TV with Geoff Keighley” on Friday, June 20.

I am tempted to say that an 'OMG, OMG, OMG' and a hand waving in front of my face for air are in order here...but I knew it all along when I saw the Wii controller so instead I'll just say...told you so!

Here's a Banta load full of information and a couple screens.

  Star Wars: The Clone Wars is a state-of-the-art computer-animated motion picture and television series that bridges the gap between Episode II and Episode III feature films. Under the supervision of George Lucas, Star Wars: The Clone Wars brings a fresh new look to the timeless saga of one of the most celebrated stories and introduces generations of fans to brand new characters as well as classic rivalries and conflicts that delve deeper into the Star Wars mythos.


STAR WARS THE CLONE WARS: LIGHTSABER DUELS (Wii)

Now everyone can experience the fun and excitement of a Lightsaber fight.  Star Wars The Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels immerses you in the characters, locations, and epic duels from the all-new Star Wars animated feature film and TV series.  Built from the ground-up for Wii,  Lightsaber Duels features an intuitive motion-controlled combat system that puts the Lightsaber weapon in your hand.  Mastering the Jedi’s distinctive weapon is now within any player's grasp.

  •  Fight the most memorable duels from The Clone Wars feature film and TV series.
  •  Wield your Wii Remote like a Lightsaber and experience first-hand the unique weapon of the Jedi knights with intuitive controls, so no matter what your gaming experience you can become a Lightsaber master.
  •  Play with your friends as your favorite Clone Wars hero or villain – from familiar characters like Anakin Skywalker and General Grievous to new faces like Ahsoka Tano and Asajj Ventress – each with a unique fighting style and set of skills.
  •  Exploit your interactive surroundings to defeat your opponent: slice down pillars and Force throw them against your foe.
  •  Duel your way through significant Clone Wars locations, such as Tatooine and Teth.

STAR WARS THE CLONE WARS: JEDI ALLIANCE (Nintendo DS)

Star Wars The Clone Wars: Jedi Alliance
takes the player into the world of the all-new Star Wars animated feature film and TV series.  Experience the combined power when two Jedi join forces to fight as one.  Choose your favorite Jedi pair at the start of each mission and experience unique moves and combat skills.  With an innovative stylus-based input, controlling the Jedi’s movement and Lightsaber combat has never felt more immersive.

  •  Play through an original story – exclusive to the Nintendo DS – that expands The Clone Wars series in exciting new directions.
  •  Create your own Jedi dream teams by pairing Jedi Masters and Padawans. For example, team up Anakin Skywalker with Obi-Wan Kenobi, or Ahsoka Tano with Mace Windu.
  •  Develop the relationship between two Jedi and generate more powerful attacks and special abilities. Replay missions with different character combinations to unlock new areas, collectibles, and other secrets.
  •  Play with a friend using the drop-in/drop-out coop feature via Wireless.
  •  Control all movement, Lightsaber combat and cinematic action sequences with just the DS stylus.

  So get that Jedi cape out of the closet even though you swore you would never wear it again after that 'fancy dress' party incident because you're going to need it.
