Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Will Make Old Games Feel New
The family-friendly adventure game will let fans play through all nine films in the main Star Wars franchise.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is the latest game in the Lego Star Wars franchise, which began with Lego Star Wars: The Video Game in 2005. The action-adventure game will allow players to complete levels inspired by the nine films in the main Star Wars film series, including Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which debuts in theaters this December.
At E3 2019, SuperParent sister site GameDaily.biz learned exciting new details about the game, which will be much more than a remaster. (Remasters typically feature the same gameplay as the original games, but with updated graphics and sometimes new features.)
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will give fans a new experience, complete with newly recorded voice acting. It will let fans begin in any movie they want, rather than forcing them to complete each movie in a specific order. Players will be able to team up with a friend in the same room to take on levels together.
In previous Lego games, the combat system relied on button mashing -- simply press the attack button over and over until all of the enemies are defeated. But, according to GameDaily, in The Skywalker Saga, players will be able to use light and strong attacks as part of a new combo system. In addition, if their character is carrying a ranged weapon (like a gun), players will be able to aim at specific enemies, rather than relying on the game to do the work.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will be released in 2020. To learn more about the game’s development, head to GameDaily.biz.
