New LEGO Star Wars Will Feature New Gameplay Options
Never underestimate the popularity of those LEGO-based titles by Traveller's Tales.
Most all these games in the ongoing series have been solid and great fun for two friends. However, you might assume they'll say goodbye to the "Star Wars" angle after several successful installments; maybe they'd move on to another big movie franchise. But instead, according to Joystiq, TT Games will bring Star Wars III: The Clone Wars to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, PSP, and DS this autumn. It's based on the Cartoon Network animated show of the same name and we can expect "brand new modes, giving players unique, head-to-head combat," plus an "expanded level editor." We're intrigued by that "head-to-head" bit; it seems to be a definite departure from the cooperative partner-based multiplayer mode in past titles. To add even more depth will be the inclusion of new tactics, such as Squad Command, Grapple Tie-Ups, and various Lightsaber techniques. There's no doubt that there's an overabundance of Star Wars fans and these days, the original fans are passing that fascination along to their kids. Hence, these LEGO games have an audience.
Anybody have any other ideas for LEGO-based games? What else can they LEGO-fy? Heck, they've already done it to Rock Band; what else could they do? Maybe the options are endless...
