Earlier this year, LucasArts announced that it would be publishing Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy this fall for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, PC, PlayStation Portable, DS, and Game Boy Advance. But as the Jedi master Yoda himself might say, "No. There is another."

LucasFilm today announced that Lego Star Wars II would also be released for the Xbox 360 and that all versions of the game would arrive in stores September 12.

The launch of the Lego Star Wars sequel is part of a multipronged Star Wars promotion surrounding the next release of the original Star Wars trilogy of films on DVD. In response to fan demand, the first three films (Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi) will be released individually on 2-disc DVD sets that include the original theatrical versions of the films "as special bonus material." Each set will also include the digitally restored and remastered versions of the films.
