The Lego Star Wars games have been around since the original 2005 on the Game Boy Advance, Gamecube, Xbox, and PlayStation 2 with the original trilogy. However, after almost two decades, there’s finally going to be Lego Star Wars title that encompasses all nine Skywalker Saga movies.
Not only will Lego Star Wars have all nine movies of the Skywalker saga to play through, but they can be played through in any order. Players will be able to explore a lot of the movie’s locations from Tatooine to Naboo with major explorable hubs such as the Death Star. Lego Star Wars will also have random encounters when players are exploring hubs.
The most ambitious part of Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is the game will have almost 500 playable characters. It’s hard to even name 500 characters in the Star Wars universe, so this is going to be exciting. However, there’s going to be some variations of the same character. For example, the original trilogy Princess Leia or General Leia from the later trilogy are considered two different characters. There will also be three different variations of Finn from the last series.
Unfortunately, it looks like The Skywalker Saga will be delayed a little longer. While players have been keeping themselves busy with the previous LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, it looks like they’re going to have to keep playing it for now as the release for the Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga game was pushed back until next year in 2021. The game was supposed to release in October 2020, but it looks like the developers had more ambitions for the game and wanted to make sure the release was as perfect as possible. Fans are willing to wait for a polished Star Wars title as Electronic Arts doesn’t exactly have a good track record of Star Wars games. Fortunately, they have nothing to do with Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga because it’s published by Warner Bros. and developed by Traveller’s Tales.
At least we have the Gamescon 2020 trailer to watch over and over until we get our hands on Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga in 2021.
