LucasArts' Jim Ward at yesterday's Hollywood & Games Summit panel said they have internal prototypes of lightsaber games using the Wiimote
and that "there'll be some stuff out this fall -- it's going to be a lot of fun." Now, before we blow our collective geek minds, the only thing we are aware of at this point is Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga
. Although that's nice, it's not really the Wiimote game we're looking for. That doesn't mean something isn't going to be revealed in two weeks at E3, and boy are people being tight-lipped
about what's going on, but the conservative side of us thinks that the Lego Star Wars
product is what Ward was referring to -- we so hope we're wrong.
Even if Ward was referring to the Lego game as the "stuff" for this fall, we're hoping to see some lighsaber Wiimote titles announced at Min-E3
, or at least get a try at these "internal prototypes." If it works even slightly better than Red Steel
we'll be more than happy. If it works really well, we'll keep a shot of insulin handy from the immaculately conceived sugar rush of joy that will occur. Two weeks till we have some lightsaber Wiimote answers.
