Oh hey, LucasArts is releasing another Star Wars; we’re probably into triple figures by now! So why should you give a toss about Star Wars – The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes, in particular? Because it’s got the first ever Official Wii Star Wars accessories, that’s why.
Bensussen Deutsch & Associates has announced that it has won the official LucasArts seal of approval for its new lightsaber and blaster Wii remote mods. Admittedly all that means is that unlike the umpteen billions of previous lightsaber Wii remote mods, this one has been taken before the mighty George and his sacred endorsement did shine upon it.
The lightsaber holds the Wii remote and lights up, much as you’d expect. The blaster holds both Wii remote and nunchuck and comes with stickers. Neither of them are compatible with Wii Motion Plus, because Star Wars – The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes isn‘t compatible with Wii MotionPlus. Seems a bit short-sighted there, but nevermind – there’ll probably be more lightsaber accessories around just as soon as LucasArts makes a Wii MotionPlus Star Wars game. Which it will. Possibly several.
No release date of prices yet, but the game is due out in September.
