How many of us have wanted to wield a lightsaber? Well, soon you’ll be able to!
In a press release, the company formally announced the long-awaited (not to mention long-winded) Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels for the Nintendo Wii. Based on the upcoming Clone Wars animated feature film, the game turns players into amateur Jedi by transforming the Wii remote into the legendary Jedi sword, letting them virtually slice and dice through destructible Clone Wars environments.
Fans should take heed, however — since the game is based on the Clone Wars film, it will not feature popular characters from the original trilogy, such as Luke Skywalker.
Scheduled for release sometime in holiday 2008, Lightsaber Duels will be the third Star Wars game to hit the Wii, following the smash hit Lego Star Wars and the upcoming action game, The Force Unleashed.
Everyone, START YOUR WIIs!
