Star Wars Bounty Hunter information
LucasArts has been kind enough to deliver us with more information regarding their latest Star Wars title, Bounty Hunter. The game will feature the main character, Jango Fett, from Episode II, who is also the father of Boba Fett. Players assume the role of Jango, as he must track down the leader of a mysterious cult. Bounty Hunter will have 18 levels and a variety of weapons for Jango Fett to use, ncluding pistols, a flamethrower, missiles, and a jetpack. Portrayed as a third-person action game, players will be taking on villains, thieves, and rivals from Jango's past. Industrial Light and Magic and Skywalker Sound have helped provide content for a game with enhanced visuals and sound.
"Because of Boba Fett's amazing legacy, Star Wars fans have been requesting a bounty hunter game from LucasArts for years," says Tom Byron, director of product marketing for LucasArts. "Star Wars Bounty Hunter will make their wait well worth it, delivering the intense, suspense-filled experience players want and expect. Like his legendary son, Jango Fett is mysterious and powerful. He's the ultimate antihero who defines much of what's cool about Star Wars."
Star Wars Bounty Hunter will be shipped to stores this fall on the Playstation 2 and GameCube.
