Lucasarts and Traveller's Tales have announced LEGO Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars, the next addition to their accessible franchise amalgamation, boasting to "combine the best elements of all previous LEGO® games while adding brand new gameplay".
As the movie storylines have been exhausted by the previous two games, LEGO Star Wars 3 will instead apply the building block treatment to the more recent animated TV series.
LEGO® Star Wars III: The Clone Wars will include all the characters from both seasons of the hugely popular animated television series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, as well as some fan-favourite characters from the beloved theatrical Star Wars Saga. The game will feature brand new battle modes, giving players unique, head-to-head combat and an upgraded level builder, allowing the creation of customized bases and in-game battlefields. Play either as a Jedi or Separatist with all-new character abilities, such as Squad command, Lightsaber slicing, Lightsaber jumps, long distance Jedi attacks and Grapple Tie-Ups, all within a new, easy-to-navigate hub.
Look for this one on all major platforms (Wii, DS, PC, X360, PS3 & PSP) in Spring 2010 (U.S. Fall).
