LucasArts Announces LEGO Star Wars III

Clone Wars cartoon series gets done up in block form for release later this year.


This Millennium Falcon is made out of LEGO-brand bricks. 
LucasArts has announced that Traveller's Tales is developing a third game in the successful LEGO Star Wars line. This year's outer space block mash-up will be known as LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars.

As you might have guessed from the title, the game is based on the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series, which currently airs on Cartoon Network. The game will take from both seasons of the show and will include additional battle modes, the ability to command squads, and additional attacks and moves.

The game is in development for the Wii, DS, PSP, Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. It's scheduled to be released in the fall of 2010.     Jeff Gerstmann on Google+

That'll make my little brother happy!

AHHHHHHHH!  Too much, they needed to quit after the first two.

So sick of the LEGO series, and IMO, the game started to become good after they stopped making the Star Wars games. I hated the "combat" in those- I know it's not supposed to be God of War or anything, but it was boring as hell to just mash-mash-mash with your weak lightsaber. Don't get me started on the guns either. I'm certainly not the target audience for this one, but don't you think that kids have had their fill with 5 (6 if you include Complete Saga) different LEGO games? At least the upcoming Harry Potter tie-in is actually doing some different things with the well-trodden formula; what is this honestly going to bring to the series?

Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff

Not sure if I will play this. I am burnt out on LEGO games, even on co-op.

Posted by Winternet

The rule of three in videogames is gold. I just hope they quit on three.

As if the new trilogy isn't shitty enough! Now they're gonna do that horrible Clone Wars series?!

Edited by Venatio

Just wanna say, I like all the Star Wars movies, there I said it, even the prequel movies
 
I even like Jar Jar Binks 
 
But yeah, the animated series sucks

The animated series? Meh. I loved the first two Lego Star Wars games, but that doesn't seem like an appealing premise to me.

Posted by Kbm600

LucasArts what the fuck are you doing? Get back on the Battlefront franchise or something, stop wasting your time with this.

Posted by MetalGearSunny

Stop. Just stop.

That ship in the story is soooo expensive. Costs half a soul. But it's pretty freaking awesome... :)

This has suck written all over it.

Too little, too late.

Unless it's the Tarakovsky Clone Wars series, nooooooobody cares.

Why the hell are they constantly making these shitty lego games instead of making games that people actually want..Jedi Knight, Battlefront, etc.

Posted by SleepyDoughnut

Understandable, because it will be profitable. But still. DUMB. I guess the sad part is that we are no longer the target market anymore whatsoever.

Because parents and kids will buy the SHIT out of it.
Posted by ArbitraryWater

Please. No more Lego Games. Especially lego games based on crappy CG spinoffs of already terrible films, which are spinoffs of 3 good films. We need more Jedi Knight action.

Whats next, Lego Star Wars IV?

Posted by Daftasabat

Still gutted Indiana Jones 2 didn't come out for the PS2, looks like this won't either. My son loves these games

Posted by pepper

I defend Lego Indiana Jones, saying though a bit of a sell out and cheesy, it was still fun. I am defending Lego Harry Potter, due to the world being condusive to this type of game.
 
But maybe I'm crazy, what the hell else can you do with a THIRD Lego Star Wars? Lego sex?

Posted by Shadow

They're just pounding the lego game franchise into the ground, huh?

I think that's where they're going with this. Space Block Boning.

That looks like the midi-scale one, which isn't so bad.
 
The bigger one though, much cash.
Posted by FlipperDesert

Do a Lego KotOR game and I'll care.
 
Actually wait, don't do that.

Posted by WinterSnowblind

Kind of disappointed to see so many people trashing the Clone Wars series.  While primarily aimed at kids, it's had some geniunely good episodes.  Miles better than the prequel movies..  Any of the episodes based around the Clones themselves and their struggles are highly recommended.

Posted by Snail

That's all I need to know in order for me not to buy the game.

Posted by TheHT

Ok, if there's animated clone wars stuff in there i'd care more than i do now, but probably not enough to get it.

Posted by Aldrenar47

I don't want to have anything to do with any Star Wars related stuff if it doesn't take place in between episodes 4 and 6.

Posted by Don

Maybe I will be able to tear myself away from Lego Universe to play this when it comes out.

Let me say this using a topic from last week.
 
That TV series and the movie its based on, is fucking retarded.  So therefore, ergo, visa vi, this game is fucking retarded.

What!?! That series is the better than the prequels.

Because they are good games and people want them.

They are actually very good. You should see them.

I would be more interested if (and I think we all know this will happen) this wasn't going to be rendered obsolete by "Lego Star Wars IV: The Complete Clone Wars Saga".

I was done with Lego games at Lego Batman. 
 
Pass.

I wonder if Traveller’s Tales is cable of making a game without Lego's.

Posted by TooWalrus

I don't have an objection to them making more Lego Star Wars games, just try not to spread yourself over too many franchises...

Posted by TheGreatGuero

Don't do it! No!!!

They have done it for many years before. But the Lego games were what gave them both critical and commercial acclaim. And they are afraid to let go, obviously.

They really need to change the formula for these Lego games now.  It's the same crap over and over again.  What they need to do is make Lego Island 3 dammit.

We would probably think so, as hardcore gamers; but my Mom actually plays the Lego games, and she wouldn't want change.  My mom and kids are probably more the target demographic.  Casual gamers.

That's true.  I guess as long as the games are selling, they will stick with their winning formula.

I might be remotely interested in this if it was based on the awesome traditionally animated Clone Wars series that aired between episodes II and III, not the crappy computer animated The Clone Wars series they're airing now. Not that I have much interest at all in the Lego Popular Franchise franchise anymore.

Another one eh...?

You must be out of the loop, considering the currently running CW series is everything people have been asking for in a cartoon series forever. Serious storylines involving darker topics than you're used to seeing for kids TV, lots of action, great storytelling without talking down to the viewer...it's a lot better than you might think.

  Hey look, someone else that hasn't actually watched the series!

F#*k I hate those games... I have Lego Star Wars 2 and refuse to put it with my other games because it's such a shame. Wow!.. LucasArts couldn't have done a better job at turning me off Star Wars, I'm actually starting to dislike the Original Trilogy now, just because I know George Lucas had some kind of involvement in it!.. Did you know if Lucas had his way on "A New Hope" Luke Skywalker was going to be a 60 year old man?.. Eeeeh!
