The Force is strong with this one after TT Games used Microsoft's E3 stage to announce Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. It's a game built around all nine of the core movies in the cinematic saga, and it follows in the footsteps of several Lego games set in A Galaxy Far, Far Away.
That being the case, the first question on pretty much every set of lips, is whether or not this is a remaster, something which TT's James Burgon set us straight on right at the start of our talk at E3:
"It's completely new [...] this is not a remaster, this is a full new game, built from the ground up, brick by brick," he told Gamereactor in LA.
When it comes to playing the game, of course, there's going to be a roster of characters drawn from across all three trilogies. Similarly, we can expect to see a bunch of locations based on the films: "Any planet that you see in the films will be there. We haven't got a final number yet because we haven't finished!"
Finally, at the end of the interview we confirmed that the game would be heading to PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One. We then asked about the performance of the less-powerful hybrid console, and Burgon explained:
"We haven't really started optimisation for the Switch yet because it's so early in development but we've already got builds on the Switch and it's running like a dream already."
You heard it here first.
