LucasArts has added fuel to the rumour that a Star Wars game which lets you use the Wii remote as a lightsaber is currently in development, telling Gamasutra.com: "We're looking into it."

Having seen the first real demonstrations of what you can do with the motion-sensing stick of wonder and hearing the news that the Wii wand has an in-built speaker, the most obvious of questions was posed directly to LucasArts staff during a tech demo on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Gamasutra reports that it was met with "knowing smiles" from the employees present, but the publisher wouldn't be pinned down to a definitive reply at this stage.

LucasArts has yet to confirm any titles in development for the Wii, but we all know they'd be stupid to miss this opportunity and if the smiles are anything to go by, we'd expect an announcement to be made soon. Keep your fingers crossed!
