Clone Wars Comes To Lego

Star Wars III: The Clone Wars is in development for the Lego franchise

LucasArts and TT Games has announced the development of Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, the next chapter in the popular Lego Star Wars videogame franchise.

Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars will combine the best elements of all previous Lego games while adding new gameplay.

Developed by the same team at Traveller’s Tales that created the Lego Star Wars and Lego Indiana Jones series, the game will ship on the Wii, Nintendo DS, PS3, PSP, and Xbox 360 and Windows in the Spring of 2010.

Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars will include all the characters from both seasons of the animated television series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, as well as some fan-favorite characters from the theatrical Star Wars Saga.

The game will feature new battle modes, giving players unique, head-to-head combat and an upgraded level builder, allowing the creation of customised bases and in-game battlefields. Play either as a Jedi or Separatist with all-new character abilities, such as Squad command, Lightsaber slicing, Lightsaber jumps, long distance Jedi attacks and Grapple Tie-Ups, all within a new, easy-to-navigate hub.
