Set for release in 2020 for the Xbox One family of devices, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will feature hundreds of playable characters — the most ever for a LEGO Star Wars game — and ships, LEGO’s signature sense of humor and fun, and new innovations, options, and gameplay features.
For the first time in the series’ history, players can start the game at any point in the Star Wars timeline; fans can jump in with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, begin the original trilogy with Star Wars: A New Hope, or launch right into Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. […]”
The Skywalker Saga is 1-6
The Sequel Trilogy isn’t canon
I prefer seeing Star Wars as 1-6, but under Disney, to be fair, the saga is obviously 1-9. And it was about time this video game series received a suitable update! Trailer is short, but it looks pretty sweet.
If they can match the gameplay, humour, and overall presentation of the earlier LEGO titles, this will surely be a big seller. Having all the Skywalker films in one self-contained package makes perfect sense; and it should also represent good value for money.
Nice to know there’ll be a Switch version, too. My father has one of those, and I have to say, it’s a pretty addictive little thing. Given the colourful, kid-friendly, and relatively straightforward LEGO premise, it’ll probably play best on the Switch, too.
