New Game: Bounty Hunter 12 Mar, 2002, 00:40 / 13 comments

LucasArts managed to include a brief trailer for an upcoming title in the bonus section of Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter for the PlayStation 2. What looks to be the first in a line of Attack of the Clones-related games, Bounty Hunter appears to be an action game starring Jango Fett.

The trailer boasts some amazing 3D graphics and particle effects, and for those that don't own Jedi Starfighter, you can view the trailer in its entirety here.

    Wow, Simon Jefferey wasn't very truthful when saying something along the lines of "Oh, at next E3 you will be asking 'where are all the Star Wars titles?!(_*#'". Because I can see them. They're right there.

    What he really said was next year they'd have more original titles. They never said there'd be a lack of Star Wars titles, although they thought that people may complain about that. We have this, Galaxies, Knights, and the add on pack to Battlegrounds. Every other Star Wars game has already been released or will be released before E3. So far we have Indy, Gladius, and maybe that Planet Moon title. So we may still shape up for that 50/50 balance. We'll just have to wait and see.

    hehehe i still have faith in the mysterious one.. I just think that with Indy not being an adventure, Planet Moon not being an adventure (right?) and probably Gladius not being an adventure either I fear for an adventureless-year..

    True. Although I find most people confusing the 50/50 balance as being between Star Wars and adventure games. I think LEC has always maintained the balance is going to be between Star Wars game and original titles. They promised they'll continue to make adventure games, but yes, we may be without one this year.

    Think about this though, since Jan 1st 2002 how many SW games have been announced (*announced* mind you, not *released*) and how many non SW titles have been announced?

    On the Star Wars side there is Bounty Hunter, the SW Battlegrounds Expansion Pack, and Jedi Starfighter. There's 3. On the non-Star Wars side there's the Indy game and the Planet Moon game. That's 2. And it's only half way through March. Let's say the next game that's announced is an original, non Star Wars title. That brings it right back to 50/50 Star Wars/Original announcements for 2002.

    Oops and don't forget Gladius, whatever that is. That could bring the original announcements (though "Gladius" was never officially announced) up to 3, on par with the # of Star Wars announcements this year. Simon never promised more than 50/50.

    That's if none of these titles overlap each other.
  • Jake on 12 Mar, 2002, 11:11…
    Even if Gladius is the Planet Moon game (or the damn Indy game!) that's still 60% Star Wars, 40% original titles.
  • Remi O on 12 Mar, 2002, 11:50…
    That's also considering Indy to be an original game, but I guess that's another discussion altogether. I'd just like to see more original games that aren't sequels. (It wouldn't hurt if it was an adventure either. :)

    When FOA came out did everyone yell and bitch that it was a franchise title? Maybe, but I like Indy-franchise games more. The visual style and stories have potential to be more engaging for me.
  • Remi O on 12 Mar, 2002, 16:52…
    Can't remember anybody either yelling or bitching, just like nobody's yelling and bitching about Indy now. FOA never got any great reviews in any magazine I read tho, merely average.
  • Metallus on 12 Mar, 2002, 16:44…
    I just don't want to have to move blocks around anymore.

    "oh yay" *sigh* ;p
