News: Many Bothans died to bring you this news.
The stolen plans of the first Death Star are the catalyst that sets off the entire Star Wars trilogy and now, thanks to Ubisoft, gamers will be able to take part in that story for the first time.
Star Wars: Lethal Alliance is coming to the PSP and DS this December. Although the games feature the same title and release date, they will be individual games tailored to each system's strengths. The PSP version is in development at Ubisoft Montreal while the DS version is being handled by Ubisoft Casablanca.
The game will take place between Episode III and Star Wars as it follows Twi'lek Rianna Saren and her security droid Zeeo as they search the galaxy for the plans to the Death Star.
?Ubisoft is honored to announce this exciting and innovative Star Wars game, the first original game in the legendary franchise built to take full advantage of the unique capabilities of both the PSP system and the DS,? said Serge Hascoet, chief creative officer at Ubisoft. ?We have worked closely with LucasArts to create a game that further develops the Star Wars universe, and unveils some of the mysteries that have kept millions of fans enthralled for decades.?
One-of-a-kind collaborative fighting: Combine the elite weaponry and acrobatic skills of Rianna with the multifunctional defensive and slicing support of Zeeo to create a formidable team. Only by working together can you complete perilous missions and ultimately steal the plans for the Death Star.
Epic gameplay and cinematic action: From the chaotic planet of Coruscant to the dusty, dangerous alleys of Mos Eisley, Rianna and Zeeo must use an arsenal of tricks to complete their mission. Set up holographic disguises to fool Imperial guards, commandeer gun turrets, master death-defying flying escapes and battle carnivorous beasts.
First original Star Wars game built exclusively for handhelds: Multiplayer modes enhance collaborative gameplay while taking advantage of the unique capabilities of both the PSP system and Nintendo DS.
Iconic environments and characters: Your mission takes you to classic destinations such as the Death Star and Tatooine, and allows you to discover never-before-seen locations on Despayre, Danuta and Alderaan. Each new environment offers encounters with unforgettable Star Wars characters and species, including Boba Fett, Kyle Katarn, Princess Leia Organa, Darth Vader, Imperial officers, Rodians, Quarren and stormtroopers.
