Lego Star Wars dev discussing work on latest game for LucasArts
Publish date:

Our sister magazine MCV reports that Traveller's Tales has dubbed its implementation of the Wii controller into the upcomig Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga "brilliantly cool".

The release of the multi-platform game later this year will pip publisher LucasArts' own Star Wars game, The Force Unleashed, to providing a game that uses Nintendo's motion sensing controller as a lightsaber. The new title is out later this year and is a compilation of the first Lego Star Wars titles with added extras and release across more formats.

TT Games' Richard Earl told MCV: "The Wii controller offers all sorts of new, fun and accessible ways for people to play with Lego characters - and swinging away with your lightsaber is a brilliantly cool part of the Lego Jedi experience."

Traveller's Tales previous instalments in the series were huge commercial successes.

Added Earl: "Of course we hope The Complete Saga can hit the Christmas number one spot, but there are many other strong titles on the horizon. We'll have to wait and see."
