The GBA version, which is developed by Amaze Entertainment, will be out in April 2005.



Eidos, one of the world's leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, announces it has secured the distribution rights to LEGO Star Wars with Giant Interactive Entertainment Ltd for all countries except Japan. The game will be released in April 2005 for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Xbox® video game system from Microsoft, PC and Game Boy® Advance.

LEGO Star Wars combines two childhood favourites, LEGO and Star Wars®, to create an innovative and exciting action-adventure title designed for young gamers. The game is based on The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and the eagerly awaited Star Wars ®: Episode III Revenge of the Sith TM, slated for worldwide release in May 2005.

Under an agreement between LucasArts and Giant Interactive Ltd, LEGO Star Wars is currently being developed by Traveller's Tales for the PlayStation2, Xbox and PC. Amaze Entertainment is developing the Game Boy Advance version.

Mike McGarvey, CEO of Eidos says:

"This signing of a title with such wide spread appeal and recognition is a major coup for Eidos. We look forward to working with Giant on maximising the game's potential."

Are they going to make three games or just one all incompassing one?

I heard Jar Jar will be a playable character. No, seriously.

This is an American third party game for the GBA that has TWO licenced properties in it. We could get a new record of suckiness with this one. Plus it's designed for "young gamers" and is based on the prequels. Oh man this is just going to be BRUTAL.

Is anything sacred anymore? What a travesty.......

I heard the preview build played well and the Lego license is integrated into the gameplay nicely...
