New Star Wars Video Game?
In keeping with the last post's Star Wars theme, awesome news came out in the video game world yesterday, possibly regarding one of the greatest video game franchises of all time.
Word on the street is that LucasArts, a video game company founded by George Lucas that mainly produces Star Wars-themed material, took out a trademark application to use the everything Star Wars within the title. Then, cover art was leaked online, showing the games' title - "Star Wars: First Assault."
With that sort of name, and the cover art showing the city of Theed from Episode I housing stormtroopers from Episodes IV-VI, everyone's best guess is that this will be a continuation of the legendary Battlefront series. Battlefront III has been rumored for years, but the company in charge, Pandemic, folded a few years back, and hopes were all but completely dashed for the series' return.
If this game is really coming out, whenever it does, the blog may be on sabbatical for any amount of time, but fair warning will be given. If you're a video game nerd, then stay tuned, and we'll keep you posted.
