Star Wars has released the first look at the upcoming Lego video game, “Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga,” as well as screencaps from the game.
Out later this year for the Xbox One family of systems, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC, this video game will span all nine Skywalker Saga films, feature nearly 500 playable characters and ships, and allow fans to start their journey at any point in the Star Wars timeline — a first for the franchise.
The game was first revealed at E3 2019, and “Lego Star Wars” has been a beloved collection of Lego video games since the first one came out in 2005. This will also be the first time that fans can play through the events of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” in Lego form.
“The ‘Lego Star Wars’ series is one of the great franchises in gaming. It’s light-hearted fun for the entire family; nearly anyone can play it, has tremendous charm, great storytelling throughout, and encourages everyone to play together,” said Craig Derrick, managing producer at Lucasfilm Games, in an interview with StarWars.com. “It’s been an honor to contribute to this franchise, and I hope everyone genuinely enjoys the game we’ve created.”
