Lego Star Wars III

I don’t know why I thought Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga would be the last in the series of Star Wars and Lego crossovers. Maybe I just thought Lego was planning on sticking with film franchises they knew they’d be able to cash in on — Indiana Jones, and Harry Potter for example. Turns out I was wrong. Today marked the release of the official demo for the latest title in the series, Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars. As you’ve probably guessed, the plot of the game will follow the Cartoon Network animated series with a number of cameos from both the show and original films.

The game’s engine will be similar to the previous entries in the series, but will feature some notable upgrades. The lighting has been tweaked for better visuals and the screen will now hold up to 200 individual models or objects at once. There are also new gameplay tweaks like the ability to land ships to proceed on foot, the ability to swap between parties in two different areas, and the ability to control groups of clones in order to take on the hordes of droids you’ll encounter as you play. Pretty nifty, right?  The game will be available for all major consoles and portable gaming platforms, except for iDevices.
