Star Wars 1313 was to feature Boba Fett - Report

Cancelled Star Wars game starred young Boba Fett; layer 1314 planned to feature in parts of the game.

Additional information on now-defunct action-adventure game Star Wars: 1313 has surfaced.

The new details emerged on IGN following a source sharing a 15-minute demo of Star Wars 1313. The demo had been originally scheduled to debut at this year's E3, and featured protagonist Boba Fett.

In it, a young Boba Fett makes his way through Tattooine while serving Jabba the Hutt. Players would have controlled the character in earlier versions of his armour. Fett's armour would have changed as the story progressed, eventually becoming more familiar to Star Wars fans.

A mention of layer 1314 was also made, with Fett intended to battle his way through it in some parts in the game. Several never-before-seen concept art pieces were also revealed.

Disney acquired the Star Wars brand in October last year, and subsequently shut down LucasArts, putting an end to Star Wars 1313 and Star Wars: First Assault.

LucasArts was most recently known for its Star Wars games, but the studio was also responsible for praised adventure games, including The Secret of Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, and Maniac Mansion: Day of the Tentacle, among others.

Thanks Disney for cancelling good projects and making crap ones.

What's the point of all the recent Star Wars 1313 "leaks" ?
Development team is gone, game won't ever see the light of day, so carry on and forget about it.

From what was shown at E3 (2012 if I remember correctly) it was just a linear railshooter filled to the top with quick time events, so the farthest from interesting that it could be.

It had no potential, so it's good they stopped wasting money on its development, it would've just been a money drain with no return of investment.

@bloody-hell I'm sure the game had city areas where you could explore, talk to aliens, buy things, etc. But it's all gone now.

@bomber1992 I only played Battlefront 1 and it was absolutely fantastic, never got much of a chance to play the second but I did get to see my friend play it.

I was under a rock for all of this (including LucasArts closing) so I am a bit shocked. I haven't played a Star Wars game since Rogue Squadron on the Gamecube and I thought this would be the one I would jump back in on. Fuck......

Isn't this kind of an old story? I'm pretty sure these details were revealed at least a month ago.

boba fett killed in a cut scene?   What?  Fett fell in the Sarlacc and escaped, went to Dengar's Wedding (badass), became a protector of the Solo's (badass), and lived to old age (badass) - being all old and bad ass and what not.

Was this game supposed to be a prequel or sequel to Star Wars: Bounty Hunter? Bounty Hunter came out in 2002 for PS2 and Gamecube.

@filmauteur100 If definitely wouldn't of been a prequel, because this game was going to be set in between episodes 3 and 4. Bounty Hunter was set between episodes 1 and 2.

Battle Front 3 was cancelled too....Maybe its something they will pick back up and give to a better developer???? who knows.

I remember last year reading something about Dinsey only wanted to make Stars Wars game like Angry Birds, casual app games instead of console games.  Maybe EA could pick this up if Battlefront 3 sells well enough.  They may be evil, but sometimes you need to team up with the villain to stop the bigger evil lol.

Well, I can't say that this is good news. I like Boba Fett very much as a character, but someone new and fresh would've been better.

@ioshilee @RC-Sev Yep, yep and yep. As much as I love BF series, I'd prefer 1313 to it any time.

Boba Fett?! ...Boba Fett?!

Sounds good to me. Shame the game is dead, because it looked really cool. Sure, the blasters didn't sound right at all, but it looked great.

Fun fact: my cousin's house number is 1313. I'll remember this game every time I go there.
