teaser footage was shown during Microsoft's Kinect announcement at E3 last year. Skip forward 12 months and it looked like this title had gone the way of the Jedi... That is until now. In the flurry of announcements leading up to E3, EW.com has unveiled the first look at the previously unnamed title, now dubbed "Kinect Star Wars".
The title will have you (and a friend) take the role of several different characters during the prequel era, starting with the events of The Phantom Menace and concluding with the rise of the Empire from Episode 3.
The trailer for the game shows on foot lightsaber antics, but also hints at Pod racing, space combat and being able to control giant Rancors. What it doesn't show is how much of this will be on-rails ala Rebel Assault or what else is in store. One piece of good news though, for all the budding Star Wars kids out there:
although if you need the tactile experience of holding a laser sword, go ahead and use your toy lightsaber (we know you have one) -- it won't subvert the experience.
Trailer (including dopey kids pretending to play it) is below (or here in HD)and I suspect we'll be seeing more of this one once E3 kicks off.
