LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga features nearly 500 playable characters, key art revealed
A release date was not announced, but it is expected to release later this year.
What you need to know
- LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga compiles all 9 films.
- It will remake LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga instead of porting it and tacking on levels for the sequel trilogy.
- Though no release date was announced, it is expected to launch in 2020.
It wouldn't be May The Fourth without some Star Wars announcements. This one just happens to be slightly underwhelming. Traveller's Tales revealed new key art for the upcoming LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga... but we did not get a release date to speak of.
In an interview with StarWars.com, Lucasfilm Games Managing Producer Craig Derrick talked about building this bundle from the ground up.
When it releases later this year, fans will be able to play as nearly 500 characters from the iconic franchise. Don't worry about needing to play each movie in order, either. Players have the freedom to jump into and film at any time to relive their favorite moments.
We expect to learn more about the game later in the summer. With E3 cancelled, it could possibly show up during Geoff Keighley's Summer Game Fest.
All nine films
A galaxy far, far away
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will be the first game to compile all nine of the series' main entries into one package. The Rise of Skywalker may have been a huge disappointment, but maybe this game can make it somewhat enjoyable.
