LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars Announced

Traveller's Tales and LucasArts today announced the latest fruit of their long-running plastic platonic relationship, the cartoon-inspired LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars.

Clone Wars features "fan-favourite characters" from Star Wars movies as well as the animated series, plus "brand new battle modes, giving players unique, head-to-head combat and an upgraded level builder" as well as abilities such as "Squad command, Lightsaber slicing, Lightsaber jumps, long distance Jedi attacks and Grapple Tie-Ups."

Players can also choose whether they will be a Jedi or Separatist, for those who you really take a deep interest in the riveting political and economic intrigue behind it all.

LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars is slated for release on PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PSP, Nintendo DS and Wii this fall.
