‘A brand new decade. A brand new game. LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga arrives 2020!’

 

I’ve loved all the Star Wars LEGO games - even the Prequel Trilogy game was an entertaining game to play, back in 2005!:-

… and have been a little disappointed we have not seen more games for the recent Star Wars releases.

I’m very happy this one is coming out soon, and it looks a lot of fun, as ever 😃

Based on this GameFAQs link it seems the game will be available for PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One.

It looks good. But I preferred when they didn’t talk. And now they have updated the new helmets, meh.

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.

Same here - the humour from having the characters not be able to talk was pretty sweet 😃

It’d be great if it that talking feature is optional - and I also hope they keep the ‘pick up and play’ feel of the previous games too (whether for a quick 10 minute blast - or sitting down for a couple of hours on it)…

What’re the chances they get the movie voices back? I know the Lego TFA game has been very useful for faneditors of that movie and I hope we get some more material. Some people have noticed that TROS opens itself up to redubbing, what with Kylo’s helmet, Zorii’s helmet and Sheev’s often darkness-shrouded face, so it would be nice to get some more dialogue from those actors. Or dialogue from a character who says nothing except ‘ow’ in the final film. I also hope for the return of the prequel actors, and living OT actors where possible, though I wouldn’t be too surprised to hear the Clone Wars voice cast. Might even be fun to have Matt Lanter re-enacting ROTS.

I think they’ll stick to Christensen as Anakin since they’re specifically adapting the films and tend to reuse a lot of audio directly from the source material.

And am I the only one who prefers voice acting? I find it makes the games more immersive (although the dead serious bits do admittedly clash with the plastic toy aesthetic).

You know what would be really neat? If instead of getting Ian McDiarmid or an impersonator for Palpatine, they got Seth MacFarlane to do his Robot Chicken Palpatine. Would really suit the parodic tone of a Lego game.

I’m looking forward to this, though I do hope the voice acting is optional.

I also wish we’d gotten more Lego Clone Wars games as well.

Yeah, it doesn’t kinda suck that they only adapted the two seasons when the show was just kinda alright and not the ones from when it got really good, but I bet the game underperformed financially since, you know, it’s based on a measly TV show still getting off the ground rather than some of the world’s biggest blockbusters. If they had waited 'til later, maybe it’d be a different story.

Although I don’t expect them to do it, I would really love this game to have a Battlefront style mode. I guess the RTS levels in CW sorta lean into that, but I really mean like Battlefront. If I could play Battlefront in this game, it’d be the only SW game I’d ever need (as it stands, Battlefront is the only other series of SW games I’ve ever seriously played). I doubt it’ll happen though.
