The Star Wars: Clone Wars Wii and Ninetndo DS video game brings us a spin-off from a spin-off, bringing us even more details about the space between the second and third Star Wars prequels. But the story of our heroes battling "Sith witches" sounds like something from the drunken pitch master. Click through for more spooky details.
IGN spoke with project lead Feargus Carroll about what the Force will have in store for Clone War gamers. The entire game takes place during the Clone Wars. According to Carroll:
We've taken all the major characters from the TV show and created a brand new adventure for them. The very future of the Republic is threatened by a sinister alliance of Count Dooku and the mysterious Nightsisters – Sith Witches with Force powers and Lightsaber skills. This combination is a huge threat to the Jedi Order, and it is up to the player to uncover the plot and defeat this powerful enemy.
Sith Witches, what to the who now? They are an offshoot from the witches of Dathomir, who share the Jedi Knights' sensitivity to the Force. Our guess is, they're bad because they are labeled witches. The character list includes (as playable characters) Obi-Wan Kenobi and Mace Windu, Anakin Skywalker, and Ahsoka Tano.
Both the DS and the Wii will have slightly different stories, but both will allow you to wave your fake light saber about like a mad sith. According to Carroll, the hope is to "give players direct control of the light saber. With stylus control the player can aim the Lightsaber with pin-point accuracy and engage in blisteringly fast Lightsaber duels."
