The more LucasArts tightens its grip, the fewer systems will slip through its fingers; original theatrical editions of original trilogy set for DVD release.
Earlier this year, LucasArts announced that it would be publishing Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy this fall for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, PC, PlayStation Portable, DS, and Game Boy Advance. But as the Jedi master Yoda himself might say, "No. There is another."
LucasFilm today announced that Lego Star Wars II would also be released for the Xbox 360 and that all versions of the game would arrive in stores September 12.
The launch of the Lego Star Wars sequel is part of a multipronged Star Wars promotion surrounding the next release of the original Star Wars trilogy of films on DVD. In response to fan demand, the first three films (Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi) will be released individually on 2-disc DVD sets that include the original theatrical versions of the films "as special bonus material." Each set will also include the digitally restored and remastered versions of the films.
I loved the first one,it was fun and easy. I'm going to rent this one though,just like I did the first one. Can't wait.
ya monkeysaresilly iagree theres really not a lot u can do to make the graphics look great because well then...it wouldnt be lego star wars just star wars... hmm
I hope that the price for all versions is the same, since the game was not made for the visuals. My little boy is going to be so excited for this game.
Hooray!!! I think, though, they should throw in the 1st Lego Star Wars game for 360 owners. I mean $60 for just the sequel??? Help us poor people out, Lucasarts!!!
wait when this game was revealed lucasarts said it didnt want a next-gen version..... guess they changed their minds then.
Hmm...isn't one of the bonus features the ability to read saves from the first game and import unlocked characters? My prediction: The 360 version will come with a ported/compatible version of the PT LEGO Star Wars.
hmm... jedi legos that look like the ones in my hand right now; and i can actually play with it without sweat? I'm in!
wOOt!!! I can't wait for this game on the 360!!! I loved the first one on the Xbox. Points for playing with Legos is awesome. But where is the backwards compatible patch for the first one.
I'd like the PC version to have the Xbox 360 graphics. PC games are virtually infinitely backward-compatible. Along with the Xbox 360 controller connected to the PC, it'll be great.
FINALLY!!! i was really upset with the remastered trilogy, it sucked, plus points for playing with star wars legos, i second that!
Great to see Lego Star Wars on the 360 and I saw this morning that the DVD of Star Wars will be coming out and I think that is great.
w00t! Han shoots first again! no more Hayden! Ewok celebration music! everyone rejoice! (i already knew about this, but i'm still pumpt! w00tness!)
YAY! more starwars! IT RULES AS MUCH AS ZELDA AND KINGDOM HEARTS! (ok, not THAT much, but almost!) : D
I was watching the developer diary earlier today for this and wished man too bad no 360 ......Then I check back later and find this ;D first one was fun and with the new vehicle system and character building it looks like it's gonna be a alot of fun too,can't wait. Oh and the idea about jedi knight would rock heh.
YES!!!!! finally a Star Wars game on the next-gen now i want to see the next KOTOR to be on the next-gen
I don't care if it doesn't have to many 360 specific features, I'll still get it. The first one was actually fun to play.
I'm worried about just a straight, up-converted port of the PS2 or Xbox versions. This "current-gen and next-gen versions of the same game coming out at the same time" madness has got to stop!
Ok another kiddie game. But what about a Jedi Knight update???? I would think either the quake 4 or FEAR engine would look awesome? And hey George isn't a decade long enough between versions of x-wing???? And don't even mention the lame space combat in galaxies!
