LucasArts has confirmed the existence of Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Republic Heroes, the cartoon-styled action instalment rumoured last month.

The game is in development for DS, PC, PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii and Xbox 360 and will arrive in September. Krome Studios will make all but the DS version, which will be handled by LucasArts Singapore.

Republic Heroes will bridge the gap between seasons one and two of the Clone Wars animated telly series and uncover the secrets of bounty hunter Cad Bane and new Skakoan super villain Kul Teska.

Players can be either Jedi heroes or elite Clone troopers. Playable goodies are Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ashoka Tano, Mace Windu and Kit Fitso. Each can commandeer droids and use Force powers to solve puzzles. Playable baddies, on the other hand, are Commander Cody, Captain Rex and more, and each has a devastating array of firepower at hand.

Two-player co-op will play a central role, and friends can even compete against each other mid-level in a series of challenges.

Let's hope this will be better than Krome's dreadful last effort, Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Lightsaber Duels on Wii.
