LucasArts ships Obi-Wan
The Xbox gets a second Star Wars title in the form of Star Wars: Obi-Wan.
LucasArts announced this week that its Xbox action game, Star Wars: Obi-Wan, has passed through manufacturing and is on its way to store shelves. The game takes place in the Episode I timeline, putting the player in the role of the younger Obi-Wan Kenobi, who is on a 15-level quest that culminates in a battle with Episode I bad guy Darth Maul.
Obi-Wan was announced as a PC game in mid-1999 and moved over to the Xbox in late 2000. The game was developed internally at LucasArts' San Rafael, Calif., studio.
