Episode II hits GBA

THQ and LucasArts team up in time for the premiere

Now this is more like it. THQ has announced Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones for GameBoy Advance. The game, which follows the storyline of the film, is scheduled for release this spring in conjunction with the film premiere. The LucasArts-developed GBA game will offer players the role of three different characters; the ill-fated Anakin Skywalker, Samuel L. Jackon's Mace Windu and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Players must wield their lightsabers in combat against the mysterious Jango Fett, evil Count Dooku and a handful of other enemies across 12 unique levels, with locations such as Tatooine, Geonosis and the streets of Coruscant - the whole planet is one big city! The game will closely follow the storyline of the film and feature three different modes of gameplay. The first mode gives players their choice of swoop bikes, Republic fighters and speeders in 3D-scrolling, third-person racing. The second mode features space combat, while the third mode involves side-scrolling lightsaber action.
