A rumor posted over at Destructoid
points to a new Clone Wars
game in the works for Xbox 360 and PS3. Titled Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes
, the game is described as a third-person action title featuring two-player co-op, with separate "Jedi" and "Clone" storylines featuring Anakin Skywalker and Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano, respectively.
The game's focus is supposedly on melee combat, with mention of some form of upgrades available throughout the game. Jedi characters will purportedly have some access to Force powers (gasp!), such as the ability to control droids (Dtoid's post mentions rolling Droideka).
Krome Studios has had plenty of experience with the Star Wars
franchise. The company handled porting Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
to the Wii, PS2, and PSP, and was responsible for the Wii-exclusive Star Wars The Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels
. Let's hope the third time's the charm here.
