LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars

With Star Wars Episodes I – VI, Indiana Jones, Batman, Harry Potter and even Rock Band having been transformed into a video-game version of the toy of the century, it’s no surprise to hear that even more LEGO-based games are on the horizon; the next of which will return to the seemingly limit-less universe created by George Lucas.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which has seen a feature-length film and 2 seasons of its animated TV series, will get the Traveller’s Tales treatment when it hits shelves in “Autumn 2010”.

Some of you may be rolling your eyes at this news but judging by the press release LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars appears to have a few new tricks up its sleeve:

The game will 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.  Play either as a Jedi or Separatist with all-new character abilities, such as Squad command, Lightsaber slicing, Lightsaber jumps, long distance Jedi attacks and Grapple Tie-Ups, all within a new, easy-to-navigate hub.

All of The Clone Wars’ characters will be available along with a few Star Wars favourites.

The LEGO Star Wars franchise has sold over 20 million units and Activision jump on board for this newest batch of sci-fi LEGO mayhem which will be available for PS3 and Xbox 360.
