Star Wars Clone Wars for 360, PS3?

Play with a friend as a Jedi or Clone.

LucasArts may be working on a Star Wars Clone Wars game for Xbox 360 and PS3.

Subtitled Republic Heroes, the game is in development at Krome Studios, according to Destructoid sources. Krome Studios was responsible for the awful Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Lightsaber Duels on Wii last year.

Republic Heroes lets two players co-operatively take up arms for either the Jedi or Clones. Goodies can pick between Anakin Skywalker and Padawan Ashoka Tano, whereas Clones get the choice of bounty hunter Cad Bane. More characters are expected.

Melee combat will provide the bread-and-butter of gameplay and upgrades can be bought along the way. Apparently droids such as the rolling, dual gun-toting Droideka can also be controlled.

Krome Studios reps have denied comment so far. We've asked Activision - LucasArts' European distributor - for comment.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars adopts an animated, cartoon approach to the George Lucas' space opera opus. The film was panned, as were the Wii and DS tie-ins. There's plenty of potential, though.
