Wii & NDS Exclusive Star Wars Games!

You wait since Wii launch for a lightsabre game, and then two come along at once. November 2008 sees the release of Star Wars The Clone Wars: Lightsabre Duels exclusively on the Wii to coincide with the release of the animated series.

This is great news – not since the awesome Rogue Leader and Rebel Strike has there been a non-handheld exclusive Star Wars game on a Nintendo. I’ve had a look at the trailer and the Collaboration Featurette and I must say, the game looks like the animated series. I’ve said before and I’ll say again that animated styles work excellently in console games.

Some key features listed on the site: 

  • Fight the most memorable duels from The Clone Wars feature film and TV series.
  • Wield your Wii Remote like a lightsaber and experience first-hand the unique weapon of the Jedi Knights with intuitive controls, so no matter what your gaming experience you can become a lightsaber master.
  • Play with your friends as your favorite Clone Wars hero or villain — from familiar characters like Anakin Skywalker and General Grievous to new faces like Ahsoka Tano and Asajj Ventress — each with a unique fighting style and set of skills.
  • Exploit your interactive surroundings to defeat your opponent: slice down pillars and Force throw them against your foe.
  • Duel your way through significant Clone Wars locations, such as Tatooine and Teth.

Also available for Nintendo DS will be Jedi Alliance. Less information is available for this title: 

  • Play through an original story — exclusive to the Nintendo DS — that expands The Clone Wars series set between Episode II and Episode III in exciting new directions.
  • Create your own Jedi dream teams by pairing Jedi in any combination. For example, team up Anakin Skywalker with Obi-Wan Kenobi, or Ahsoka Tano with Mace Windu.
