Rumor: Star Wars 1313 starred Boba Fett

Rumor: Star Wars 1313 starred Boba Fett

Before it was put on hold and then unceremoniously canceled with the closure of LucasArts, Star Wars 1313 was a promising, albeit mysterious, game. LucasArts was notably cagey about it, only noting that the hero's character model was a placeholder without acknowledging who it would be. Now that such secrets no longer matter, sources have confirmed suspicions that the game was meant to star fan favorite character Boba Fett.

LucasArts acquired by Disney

The Walt Disney Company has acquired Lucasfilm and its subsidiaries, including its LucasArts video gaming division, in a deal that's valued at $4.05 billion.

"For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next," George Lucas said in the announcement. "It's now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers. I've always believed that Star Wars could live beyond me, and I thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime."

Morning Caffeinated! -- Two Interviews, a Wii U oops and VR, baby

Good morning, Shack.

For those slightly confused by the name, don't be. This is still your Morning Keefinated, just rebranded for the folks who haven't yet started visiting Chatty and may not understand the history, but in the end, it's the same old stuff, same wrapper, same owner, but now with a word people will recognize.

I'm going to kick things off by telling you the tale of two interviews.

Star Wars 1313 teaser continues to tease

Star Wars 1313 is still largely a mystery, despite its impressive showing at E3. LucasArts is playing very close to the vest with the plot and gameplay footage is scarce. Even the newest trailer sticks to cutscenes and concept art, but it does have plenty of detail about the titular setting.

Star Wars 1313 trailer shows plenty of action

If you read our E3 preview of Star Wars 1313, then you'll get a pretty good feel for what's in this trailer just released for Gamescom 2012. The footage is taken almost entirely from the showing we had behind closed doors back in June.

There are some good battle scenes, and great graphics, but not much actual gameplay. If you want gameplay, then this video would probably be more appropriate. Either way, the action is still pretty intense.

Star Wars 1313 preview

QUICKTAKE: LucasArts' next foray into the Star Wars universe is bringing together experts from the LucasFilm family of companies to create the gritty, seedy underworld of level 1313 on Coruscant. Players will take on the role of a bounty hunter in the underground metropolis where there are no Jedi and there is no Force. For the first time, a LucasArts game will deal with a mature theme with more sinister characters and more shades of grey. However you spin it, the game should have plenty of action.
