LucasArts announced that they'll be bringing Genndy Tartakovsky's distinctive designs to "a handheld" for a game based on the animated series Clone Wars. This will be the first handheld game developed in-house by LucasArts. EA's Feargus Carroll, who boasts a record that spans everything from comedy to squad-based games, is set to helm the project.
While we don't know that we'll be able to boast this title on the DS yet, as no platform has been announced, it just seems like a natural fit. We'll keep an eye on this developing story!
I've never had much interest in any of the handheld Star Wars games (the only one I've ever bought was Yoda Stories for the Game Boy Color, and it was probably one of the worst gaming purchases I've ever made), but if it's done right, this game, using the animated Clone Wars style, might be worth checking out. Should be visually appealing, at least--hopefully it'll play as good as it'll probably look.
I'd guess this'll be coming out toward the end of the year for the Nintendo DS and the Sony PSP. . .
