Wii lightsaber game a reality

It had already been confirmed for Xbox 360 and PS3, and now LucasArts’ next-gen Star Wars epic The Force Unleashed is heading to Wii – with platform-specific Wii Remote lightsaber battles as part of the bargain.

The Wii is a great platform for The Force Unleashed because the console’s motion-oriented controllers really bring the game to life,” LucasArts president Jim Ward stated.

We’ve worked hard to make the Wii version of the game unique in order to truly let you unleash the Force.”

The Wii incarnation, along with the current-gen PS2 and PSP versions, is set to be handled by Krome Studios, the folk behind popular kids platformer Ty the Tasmanian Tiger.
