New Star Wars Wii Game Incoming

September release for next Clone Wars game

A new Star Wars game based on the Clone Wars TV series will be released for the Wii in September.

Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes allows players to fight as both Jedi Knights and Clone Troopers through over 30 missions. It has the same cartoon visual style as the TV series.

"The Clone Wars franchise has struck a chord with viewers and gamers around the world with its action-packed storyline and memorable heroes," said Darrell Rodriguez, president of LucasArts. "With its Jedi and Clone Trooper gameplay and all-new storyline, Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes takes the franchise into a truly exciting and interactive direction."

We've never seen it so we'll have to take Lucas' word for it.

    Wii Motion Plus perhaps, maybe, who knows...

    *Yawn*

    Being multi-format and the Wii version not having Wii Motionplus makes it just another milking of the Star Wars franchise.

    :D

    ...based on the Clone Wars TV series...

    :(

    The Clone Wars franchise has struck a chord with viewers and gamers around the world with its lack of a good story line, overused humour (If you can call it that) and dumbing down so six year olds like it.

    Fix'd.

    Recent reports show that it may have been bought so don't deteriorate yet.

    this isnt battlefront 3 this is just another star wars game to keep us busy until they finish it, hurry up lucasarts and finish making in it already, its been in production for three years and every time it has release date annouced, its then suddenly delayed again, a bit like duke nukem forever.

    i actually really like the series, and the last DS game. the Wii game was crappy. This is what I want:
    Wii Motionplus for Jedi bits
    FPS for the clone troopers
    each mission to last about 30 mins
    a decent story

    This could be interesting, but I'm not too sure if the Clone Wars series can do as well as something like the pre-episode I era. That would be interesting to see.
