With the six films from the original trilogy and the trilogy we would like to forget about out of the way, TT Games and Lucasarts have decided that The Clone Wars is the next chapter of the Lego Star Wars saga. The game is headed for all major platforms this fall. All the characters from the animated show as well as film favourites will be in the game, and you can either choose to play as a Jedi or a separatist.
A couple of quotes from the press release:
"LucasArts continues to set the bar for next-generation family entertainment," said Darrell Rodriguez, president of LucasArts. "The LEGO Star Wars franchise is a massive hit with fans, bringing in sales of over 20 million units worldwide. We're thrilled to extend this experience to LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, delivering the humor and fun players expect from this award winning franchise."
"LucasArts is an amazing partner, and working with them on the next iteration of the LEGO Star Wars series continues to be a great experience," said Tom Stone, director at TT Games. "The team at TT is working hard at making this simply the best LEGO game ever with all new gameplay and features never before seen in a LEGO game."
