Intergalactic planetary… Bounty hunter Boba Fett is in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. Boom.
The news emerged last night from Comic-Con, San Diego.
Yesterday publisher Activision held a preview event for the game in London, and the lovely Keza MacDonald was there for Eurogamer. Here's what she told us in an email last night:
"Boba Fett is totally in the game, but you don't get to play him or anything. Darth Vader hires him to hunt down Juno, the love interest from the first game, in order to lure Starkiller's clone into his grasp.
"Fett's in the game as a response to fans' requests for more iconic Star Wars characters to liven up Force Unleashed's created universe."
Eurogamer went hands-on with The Force Unleashed II, due out due out for DS, PS3, PC, Wii and Xbox 360 in late October, at E3.
