Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes Announced

LucasArts has announced today via a press release that a new videogame based on the Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series is in production at Aussie games developer Krome Studios.

Dubbed Republic Heroes, the game will apparently bridge Seasons One and Two of the series and will follow everyone’s favourite Clone Wars heroes as they pursue the mysterious bounty hunter Cad Bane and combat the all-new super villain Kul Teska. Players will be able to fight as both Jedi Knights and clone troopers as they undertake over 30 unique missions. Jedi characters utilise the lightsabres to cut down their enemies, and will also be able to commandeer droids and pilot a variety of vehicles. Clone troopers have a higher focus on weaponry, and wield blasters, rocket launchers, thermal detonators and, in some levels, jetpacks.

Exclusive to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions is online and offline two-player drop in/out multiplayer. A Nintendo DS version is also in development at LucasArts Singapore, the team responsible for last year’s Jedi Alliance. This version will feature touch screen controls as well as missions based on key events and battles from Season One.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes is scheduled to be released in September this year on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PC, PS2, PSP and Nintendo DS.
