Traveller’s Tales has revealed the next LEGO video game in its pipeline: the company has been beavering away on LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which will retell all nine films in the main Star Wars movie series as fresh slices of brick-based interactive entertainment.
“LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga marks our return to the franchise that kicked off the LEGO video game series,” said Tom Stone (MD of Traveller’s Tales) in an official statement. “The game will give fans an all-new LEGO Star Wars experience with complete freedom to explore the LEGO Star Wars galaxy. It was an absolute pleasure to be part of the launch of the original LEGO Star Wars game and it’s equally exciting to now move the series forward and help create a new era of LEGO Star Wars games.”
The game is set to launch on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, and it will allow players to jump straight into whichever trilogy tickles their fancy. So you can either start with the prequel trilogy, the original trilogy, or the sequel trilogy, depending on which order you like to do things.
Here’s the first LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga trailer…
An official press release from Warner Bros (the company that owns Traveller’s Tales) promises that this 9-film-spanning game will offer players “the biggest roster of playable characters in the LEGO Star Wars series including the greatest legends from every era of the Skywalker saga.” You’ll also be able to pilot iconic vehicles including the Millennium Falcon, Resistance X-Wings and prequel-era podracers.
“With the Skywalker saga coming to an end, we wanted to give fans the ultimate Star Wars video game experience with all the humor and charm that is uniquely LEGO,” said Douglas Reilly (VP of Lucasfilm Games). “LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will bring to life all those Star Wars adventures remembered and undiscovered in an epic culmination of all nine saga films as fans celebrate the closing of this chapter in Star Wars.”
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Release Date
We don’t have a firm release date for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, but Warner Bros. promises that the game will launch in 2020, which makes sense, as we can’t have it spoiling Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, which arrives in Dec. 2019.
