Earlier this year LucasFilm confirmed that its canned Star Wars noir spin-off, Star Wars 1313, was about everyone's favourite grappling hook-weilding bounty hunter Boba Fett. Now an anonymous former developer on the project spilled the beans to IGN about what the project would have entailed.

Star Wars 1313 would have opened with a younger Boba Fett - still sporting his father's helmet - on Tattooine. Since the game was to be set between the prequels and the original trilogy, Fett was going to gain different armour throughout until he'd arrive at the classic costume we all know and love.

Part of the game was set to take place in an especially grim borough called layer 1314, a derelict section of Coruscant.

As an early trailer suggested, Star Wars 1313 was going to follow closely in the footsteps of Uncharted with lots of scripted third-person platforming sections. Like the Uncharted games, you would have been joined by a companion much of the game, though it would have been a droid rather than a spunky gal or silver fox adventurer.

Evidently, Tauntaun smuggling was supposed to be a crucial part of the game's plot, as the space marsupials were used as mules to smuggle spice.

Additionally, the game was set to tie into a live-action TV series about the various crime families of Coruscant. It remains unclear if this show will still be produced following Disney's acquisition of LucasFilm.

For more details, IGN has the full scoop. For now check out a few tantalising pieces of concept art.

Coruscant's underworld sure looks pretty at night. Or day. I'm not really sure.
