When they announced that a new Star Wars title would be shown, the prime suspect was automatically a sequel to The Force Unleashed – mainly because the game sold a total of 5.7 million copies. That said, surly enough, the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed sequel was revealed during the “most important moment for gaming”, the Spike 2009 Video Game Awards.
According to the games official website, the game is expected to release in 2010. However, no platforms were made explicit in the trailer. The Force Unleashed II trailer features voiceovers from both Darth Vader and Yoda, who are, in the trailer, in a conversation with Galen “Starkiller” Marek, the main character from the first game. Enjoy!
During the Star Wars Spectacular event earlier on today, LucasArts announced that the The Force Unleashed will be seeing further expansion this Fall through a new downloadable level that’s promises to take players to the famous Tattooine, meeting characters like Boba Fett and Obi-wan Kenobi.
The mission begins at the end of the story of The Force Unleashed and re-imagines the Star Wars Saga as if the Secret Apprentice had killed Darth Vader and taken his place at the Emperor’s side, becoming the most powerful Sith Lord in the universe.
The story picks up as the Emperor sends his new apprentice to the planet Tatooine to dispatch Obi-Wan Kenobi – who has been hiding on the planet ever since the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. During their hunt for the reclusive Jedi, players will also explore the depths of Jabba the Hutt’s palace and encounter notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett.
In addition, LucasArts also announced Star Wars: The Force Unleashed – Ultimate Sith Edition, a special new version of the game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, that will show gamers the deepest, darkest side of the Force in a story that puts them on a collision course with Luke Skywalker himself.
Available this holiday season at retail stores, The Ultimate Sith Edition will include all of the original missions found in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed as well as content previously only available via download and an all-new exclusive bonus level.
Along with the announcement of Tekken 6 coming to the PSP, another one of our favorite fighting titles will be headed to the PSP.
In the long shadow of Soulcalibur IV, it seems that its developer is planning the PSP treatment for the game called Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny. According to many scores, the game would not feature Darth Vader and Yoda like in the console versions. However, it well feature a new fighter named Dampierre.
In addition, it was revealed by GameSpot that the game would included characters like Ivy, Cassandra, Voldo, Siegfried, Mitsurugi, Tira, Taki, Astaroth, and Hilde. And the final list will feature about 20 characters. Anyway, even if the list is shorter then the console version, players can expect an improved character creation system and a changing clock, meaning you won’t be limited to seeing stages at a single point in time.
Unlike Tekken, the PSP incarnation of Soul Calibur, will not be a port and is scheduled for release this summer.
I always figured that Yoda and Darth Vader will be playable on both systems because there was always that empty slot right after Yoda or Darth Vador and there was no way of unlocking that “secret character”. But, now today, we have received news that both Yoda and Darth Vader will be available on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as playable characters in Soul Calibur IV. To download Yoda onto the PS3 it will cost you $6.00, while Darth Vader on the Xbox 360 will cost 400 Microsoft points.
There was a rumor going around that Kratos would be testing his blade against Darth Vader and his secret apprentice from the Star Wars universe in the upcoming PlayStation 3 version of Soul Calibur IV. The rumor wasn’t so far fetched, mainly because in other Soul Calibur games featured players for different universe’s like Link on the GameCube version and Heihachi on the PS2 version. However thanks to a podcast made by 1UP the rumor was quickly smashed , stating that Kratos will be absent from Namco’s upcoming game. But, there still is the strong possible that he could be included in future planned downloadable content.
Let’s just hope that they do included Kratos in upcoming downloadable content for the game because i know there alot of people who can’t wait too play as him.
