WTF? At the end of the The Force Unleashed – well it’s the end. There shouldn’t be a continuation right?

Apparently not…Is the ‘secret apprentice’ now a clone? ??

‘You are one of Vader’s spies ?’

‘I bring Vader’s enemies to justice.’

We’ve been watching Force Unleashed trailers for almost a year now and each one looks better then the next – this latest official launch trailer is the best yet for a few reasons.

The most important reason is that this trailer shows us some real plot – which is where this game will really excel – sure the game mechanics are awesome but the plot …..NICE.

The secret apprentice will FIGHT VADER!! CHECK out the final few frames of the trailer for yourself…

Awesome show this past Friday night on GameTrailer TV on Spike. They showed a whole lot of new footage from the game…

But perhaps most importantly they showed the first time ever…two guys playing head to head in death match mode on the Wii.

No there is no Wifi ..option (yet) but it it does look sharp. This will be the first head to head star wars deathmatch kind of game since Star Wars Master of the Teras Kasi for PS1.

Check out the footage in the vid below (the really wicked stuff starts at the 3 minute mark)

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is one of the most ambitious projects LucasArts has ever launched. The combination of a great new Star Wars story with revolutionary new technology and game play means more fun than you’ve ever had in the Star Wars universe,” said Peter Hirschmann, Vice-President of Product Development, LucasArts in a statement. “We can’t wait until gamers get their hands on it this September.”

We can’t wait either (but we will).

We’ve been writing about this game for awhile and probably will lots more before the September release.

StarWars.com has done a marvelous job of keeping the fans updated on the latest about Star Wars : The Force Unleashed.

It looks like LucasArts has opening up more info to Vanity Fair too with a whole bunch of screen shots that no one has seen before.

 Since the shots are so slick, it’s tough to tell if they’re actual gameplay – though i expect that it is at this point as opposed to conceptual artwork though there is some of that there to be sure too.

Also to be sure is that Star Wars The Force Unleashed is getting the full FORCE of Lucas’ awesome marketing machine.

Star Wars : The Force Unleashed First Wii Screenshots January 29, 2008

No question that Star Wars : The Force Unleashed could be the most awesome Star Wars game of all time.

No question that the Wii is an awesome platform.

Put the two together and what will get?

Lucas Arts recently did a media event and the specifics of how the Wii will control the Force were among the items discussed.

The Wiimote and Nunchuk act as the left and right hands for controlling force and lightsaber actions.

There are five lightsaber movements with the remote: right to left, left to right, downswing, uppercut and stab.
All of the force powers (with the exception of throwing the lightsaber) are controlled with nunchuk movements – the force push, for example, is triggered by thrusting it forward – while holding buttons switches to lightning and grab attacks.

CVG has perhaps the best roundup if you’re looking for more..

Star Wars the Force Unleashed – For Nokia cellphones?? December 5, 2007

All the trailers we’ve seen so far make Star Wars The Force Unleashed look awesome.

Now apparently the game is also coming for the Nokia N-Gauge system..and the trailer is…well..it’s somewhat less the awesome.

The sound sucks the game play choppy and effects are weak. Hopefully that’s just problems with Nokia and not the game itself.
