SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – November 7, 2007 – LucasArts and TT Games celebrate the 30th anniversary of the classic movie series that spans generations with the release of LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga. Building on the success of both LEGO Star Wars "block-buster" videogames, each complete with LEGO action and minifigure humor, The Complete Saga enables families to play through the events of all six Star Wars movies in one videogame for the first time ever. Developer Traveller's Tales takes full advantage of the unique capabilities of all three next-generation consoles, while also adding new characters, new levels and new features. Players can build and battle today on the Wii, PLAYSTATION3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360 videogame system from Microsoft. Traveller's Tales also created an entirely new Nintendo DS version, developed brick by brick from the ground up.
According to the NPD Group, domestic sales of the two LEGO Star Wars videogame releases reached nearly 8 million units through September 2007, and LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy was the No. 3 best-selling title of 2006.
The Complete Saga takes players to the most beautiful LEGO Star Wars galaxy ever assembled with high-definition graphics on the PLAYSTATION3 system and Xbox 360. And with both consoles' online capabilities, families spread across the world can unite to rebuild a galaxy in pieces with cooperative two-player, drop-in/drop-out gameplay. Meanwhile, the unique Wii and Nintendo DS control schemes result in the most interactive LEGO Star Wars gaming experience yet.
