Lego And Star Wars – You Can’t Go Wrong

Everyone knows that Lego is fairly damn awesome, and the Star Wars franchise is a huge influential part of “geek” culture. So when you mash these 2 things together you’re bound to get something amazing out of it. That’s exactly the thinking behind the Lego Star Wars series from LucasArts, and they have a new one lined up that’s about to drop.

Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars will see players to control many familiar characters within the Star Wars universe, with the game set during the animated Clone Wars series and also scenes from Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Below is a trailer we’ve been sent which shows off a small piece of what people can expect.

Released on 25 March for all formats, including the 3DS, the game is based on the (and ever improving) animated series. The latest trailer is just out and has a suitably grand Star Wars feel, with space battles and some impressively detailed land battles being the highlights.

The Clone Wars setting may put off older gamers, but after the disappointing Force Unleashed 2 this could be the game to restore faith in the Star Wars franchise. Alternatively, it will just be a souped-up version of Lego Star Wars II. Either way, I’m looking forward to it. Are you?
