Ward's Wii Saber confirmation 28 Jun, 2007, 09:06 / 2 comments

After a year or so of wild speculation, Big Jim Ward finally made a formal announcement as reported on Gamasutra.

Responding to a question about what it would take for LucasArts to produce a lightsaber game on Wii, Ward said that the concept is "in place." He added: "We're all over that, and internally we have already played a lightsaber game on the Wii. It's a lot of fun, and we'll get there."

But this may not be the Wii lightsaber game you're imagining, as the blurb for the LEGO Star Wars game for the Wii states "Wii: Motion-sensitive inputs give you exciting new ways to control your LEGO Star Wars characters."

    I hope they get this one right, and I hope it's not LEGO.

    Re-reading it I take it to mean there's a 'proper' Lightsaber Wii game in development, and on top of that the staff have had hands on on LEGO Star Wars which also features a Wiisaber component.
