Lego Star Wars III – The Clone Wars

Lucas Arts and Travellers Tales today announced the third game in their brilliant and huge selling Lego Star Wars franchise. Whilst more Lego Star Wars is a great proposition, the fact that the third in series is based on the less-than-awesome Clone Wars animated series is a little disappointing. That said if anyone can make the Clone Wars series better it is Travellers Tales who, you can be sure, will add their own unique and humorous slant on proceedings.

Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars will include all the characters from both seasons of the television series, as well as some characters from the 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.

It sounds great and we despite the source material it is more Lego Star Wars.

The game will ship on the Wii, DS, PS3, PSP, Xbox 360 and Windows in Autumn this year.

Phoenix from the Flames

The second game in Capcom’s classic, Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney series called Justice For All, will be available for download on Wii Ware on February 15, 2010 and it’ll cost 1,000 Wii Points. It will also be released for the DS on the 16th

In Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Justice For All, Phoenix Wright has had six months of experience and five court victories under his belt. None of that will do him any good against the ruthless new D.A. in town though. Franziska von Karma wants revenge and she’s ready to take Phoenix down at any cost.

The first of the six game Ace Attorney series – Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney is available to download now.

And Finally!!

In what is probably the best press release.. Well, ever! News of a new Zombie game for PS3 minis and PSP has just been announced. You know what I am just going to paste the entire thing so you can read it for yourselves! Enjoy!

We at Halfbrick (The developers.) are very happy to announce Age of Zombies – Rated T for TEEN – for the PSP and PS3 minis. We know what you are thinking – “Great, another %@&$in zombie game!”

We thought about that too. After years of research at the Halfbrick Researchalogical Datafiler Department, our team discovered a unique formula which determined that:

(Proximity of gamers to zombies + stupidness and stuff) x Headblast Ratio 7.4 = Increased ability to spend money.

There’s no denying it. Zombie games make money. No one has anything against a good zombie game really, it’s just that there’s a lot of them. So we needed to try something different. We didn’t want to kill zombies in the usual way. We didn’t want to survive a deadly undead army in the ruins of some scary-ass town. We wanted to travel through time and shoot zombie dinosaurs and mummies and junk. So, we created Age of Zombies!

To conduct field research, the development team actually journeyed back in time to experience what it meant to really blast zombie faces with guns while standing around the Pyramids and Japanese villages and such.

Mr. Morowitz, the game’s lead programmer, found the entire experience fascinating:“I particularly enjoyed the artwork of the Ancient Egyptians and their ability to persevere under extreme environmental circumstances.”

Creative consultant Anthony Hansen on his adventure: “I learned how to make moonshine in the 1930s.”

And lead artist Murry Lancashire: “I liked shooting cavemen.”

Truly an enlightening experience for the entire team! Upon returning to 2010, Halfbrick set about creating Age of Zombies, where the hero Barry Steakfries employs the use of time portals to stop the evil zombie scheme of Professor Brains. Using a huge pile of weapons and explosives, Steakfries is the real deal for blood-splattering needs.

And yay, the game was. Age of Zombies, releasing on PSP and PS3 minis for $4.99 on November 25th. We hope, in the future, you do try it!

Now if that isn’t a reason to spend a fiver I don’t know what is.
