The moment the Nintendo Wii was announced, I can remember eagerly awaiting the announcement of a Star Wars game that allowed me to wield a lightsaber. Thankfully, that time is quickly approaching, and you can check out the trailer for Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels below, along with official game information.
Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels is, not surprisingly, making its way to us “Holiday 2008,” just in time for Star Wars: The Clone Wars to hit cinemas. According to game producer Ken Fox, “We have one of the main writers from the movie and the series writing and all the voice talent from the series recording over 4000 lines of dialog for the game.” So it looks like LucasArts is going all out for this game!
