LucasArts Pushing The Force Unleashed 2 Licensing
LucasArts have announced that The Force Unleahsed 2 will receive many toys, clothes, and books that will accompany the game before and after its release.
“We see Force Unleashed as a big Star Wars event,” said Haden Blackman,executive producer at LucasArts.
“We feel like it is a genuine part of the Star Wars lore and it continues the saga. So licensing is fully behind it and we are doing most of the stuff you would expect from a major Star Wars launch.
“Star Wars fans have been forgiving over the years,” he added,
“But we don’t take that for granted. We are so paranoid about tarnishing Star Wars. We want to make every game as good as possible, but it doesn’t always work out that way.
“The Force Unleashed II is a better game. Whether it reviews or sells as well, I have no idea.”
LucasArts later on talked about the Playstation Move, and the option of adopting it into a Star Wars game.
“We looked at Move quite extensively,” said Blackman.
“As a company we are very supportive of both Move and Kinect. We are keenly interested in finding the right games to support that specific motion-sensing technology.
“We have people internally at LucasArts who are actively looking at it.” he explained.
Star Wars The Force Unleashed 2 will be released on October 29.
