LucasArts has announced plans to publish a third multi-platform game in the Lego Star Wars franchise.Titled Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, the game will be released on the Wii, DS, PS3, PSP, Xbox 360 and PC in autumn 2010.
Developed by Traveller's Tales, the new title will include all the characters from animated TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, as well as other popular figures from the Star Wars saga.

"We're thrilled to extend this experience to Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, delivering the humour and fun players expect from this award-winning franchise."
