During last weeks E3 Expo, Lucas Arts expressed interest in developing a Star Wars lightsaber game for the Nintendo Wii. Giving gamers the ability to wield the sword via the Wii’s new controller would take such a game to the next level – making it a no brainer.
Not surprisingly, Nintendo agrees.
Nintendo President, Satoru Iwata recently told the Seattle Times that “we really want [George] Lucas to think about making a game where [the Wii controller] can be used as a light saber. It should be fun.”
Given that Lucas Arts doesn’t hesitate to crank out the Star Wars games combined with the unique gameplay experience to be had on the Wii, I’m sure that this offer will prove too irresistible to pass up.
