Activision Confirms Lego Star Wars III For Release On All Major Platforms This Autumn

leave a comment »

With the Star Wars franchise still proving to be popular, and having new legs in the form of the fairly decent clone wars TV show, it should come as little surprise that Lego developer Travellers Tales has announced Lego Star Wars III for release this Autumn on pretty much every current platform.

Given the newfound popularity that thirty plus year franchise has now found with the younglings in the form of the aforementioned Clone Wars TV show, it makes sense therefore that Lego Star Wars III is set during the first season of the Clone Wars TV show.

I smell milk. And its off.

The official press release can be seen below:
