“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.

More on some of last weeks auctions on eBay that i was looking at with Star Wars collectibles.

Some sold, but not all. Here’s the breakdown:

Star Wars DROIDS uncle gundy
this is a rare toy, sold for $61.01 with 11 bidders

Star Wars Y-Wing complete with bomb sold for $51 after 6 bids.

Not Everything sells either, I was watching a few interesting items that picked up 0 bids.
Sith Infiltrator Remote
was listed at $5 and had zero bids. Could’ve been a real win for someone at that price!

Star Wars: Legacy #14–Claws of the Dragon pt. 1 is the first issue of a new story arc in which we will finally find out who Darth Krayt really is .

This is yet another awesome issue that is brilliant drawn and written. Cade Skywalker makes his way to Coruscant where he is ultimately captured by the Sith. It is also painfully obvious that Cade is more comfortable with a blaster than with using the force, something that isn’t a suprise I suppose since he did leave his Jedi roots behind for many years.

Though this issue is a stepping to stone to issue 15 – which is likely one of the most highly anticipated Star Wars comic book releases in a generation – it’s still worthy of much merit and praise.

We learn that Darth Krayt is dying and that Cade Skywalker may be his only chance for survival.
The Mynock (Cade’s ship) has got some info on it and thnx to a friendly Hutt, that info is going to fall into friendly hands.

Oh and the art…WOW…we see the first real shots of Coruscant in the Legacy era and of the Legacy era Tie Fighter (which are sort of like Tie Interceptors on steroids).

That said…i can hardly contain my enthusiasm for issue 15. FINALLLY we’ll find out who Darth Krayt is.

I wonder if anyone in the ShowMeSciFi discussion forum is actually right.

Lucas Arts has confirmed that Star Wars Lego – The Complete Saga will be available for the Wii this fall.Star Wars Lego could well be the first Star Wars game for the Wii and it will be interesting to see how far Lucas Arts goes to actually support the Wiimote and the Numchuck.

No this won’t be Star Wars The Force Unleashed but hey..the Wii may make this real interesting.

Star Wars video games have long been a hit and miss exercise. From the highs of Knights of the Old Republic to crap like Jedi Power Battles. Star Wars video games for next generation consoles may well be a real hit, especially on the Wii.

On the Nintendo Wii you can literally stretch out with your feelings (or WiiMote/Nunchuk) and strike down your enemy.

Don’t believe me? Check out this vid of Star Wars on the Wii. It’ll blow you away. I can hardly wait.
