“No Jedi in history has ever used the force the way that the secret apprentice uses the force …he’s a force wrecking ball. He’s unstoppable

– Sam Witwer LucasArts

Star Wars The Force Unleashed is the next BIG game from LucasArts (and its coming for the Wii too).

In a recent production video (linked below), LucasArt big wigs give some color on the characters in the game.

The big five characters:

The secret apprentice that’s the character you play in the game

Juno Eclipse – she’s the love interest and is an imperial pilot that ferries the appretice around the galaxy

General Koda – a hardboiled Jedi Master

Proxy – the droid sidekick

Darth Vader

In the video, the game’s production lead describes the Secret Apprentice as a Dark Luke Skywalker – what Luke would have been like had he joined Vader.

forceunleashed.jpgWe’ve been waiting for this for a long time. IN fact almost since the day the Wii launched fans have been begging for the ultimate Star Wars experience on the Wii.

We now know when it’s coming: Spring 2008.

That’s when The Force Unleashed hits the Wii with an exclusive dual mode option that will let you wield your Wiimote the way it was intended – as a lightsaber!!!!

“The Wii is a great platform for The Force Unleashed, because the console’s motion-oriented controllers really bring the game to life,” said Jim Ward, President of LucasArts in a statement. “We’ve worked hard to make the Wii version of the game unique in order to truly let you unleash the Force.”

The Wii version, in development by Krome Studios, will also add an exclusive duel mode in which players can compete head-to-head with their friends to determine the ultimate Jedi Master.

If you didn’t have a reason for owning a Wii before – now you do.

Came across this neat contest – If Trekkies ruled.
Bascially its a really funny set of pics imagining what our world would be like if Trek really did rule.

Lots of pointy ears, a few Klingons, some Bajorans in the mix too.

I’d like to think that if Trek really did rule the world though that we’d all actually have real food replicators (no world hunger) and hey the no money thing is interesting (though unfeasable).

We’ve all seen the ‘inspirational’ posters in local malls..the Star Trek variety are a bit more interesting for those of us that prefer Trek.

It’s a great idea with some really keen satire too.

forceunleashed.jpgNo it’s not KOTOR III. But yes it is the next greatest thing to happen to Star Wars Gaming.

LucasArts has announced a November shipping date for Star Wars The Force Unleashed which should be available for Xbox 360, PS3, PS2 and PSP. It is unclear whether a Wii version is in the cards.

LucasArts is claiming that the new game will introduce all kinds of new gaming innovations – as well as a new playable dark lord wannabe.

The Star Wars saga continues this November in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, a videogame developed by LucasArts, which casts players as Darth Vader’s “Secret Apprentice” and promises to unveil new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy. The expansive story, created under direction from George Lucas, is set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. In it, players will assist the iconic villain in his quest to rid the universe of Jedi – and face decisions that could change the course of their destiny.
