The expanding world of Star Wars never fails to amaze and wow its fans. Although the trilogy we all know and love came to a grinding halt after the movie release of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, the Star Wars universe never stopped expanding in other areas in particular, books, comics and video games.
Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron releases for the PSP this year. We can’t give you an exact date but it will be late this year, around the same time as Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is scheduled for release in New Zealand.
Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron is the previously untold story of a ragtag ensemble of battle-hardened rogues and scoundrels assembled by Han Solo. Gathered to execute some of the most secretive operations in the Rebel Alliance’s war against the Galactic Empire, the Renegade Squadron participates in battles spanning the galaxy. From the Valley of the Sith on Korriban to a dogfight in space through the remains of Alderaan, Solo directs the team on missions of sabotage, rescue and retrieval.
Going mobile is a huge step for the Star Wars franchise. With the power of the small yet grunty PSP backing it up, I’ll be keen to see how this game looks once it’s released.
