Star Wars: First Assault coming to XBLA?
Listing for unannounced LucasArts project appears on Web forum; developer says is is an "exciting time" at the studio.
A new Star Wars game is headed to Xbox Live Arcade, according to an eagle-eyed NeoGAF forum user. Cover art for Star Wars: First Assault (below right) bears the iconic Star Wars font and style, and appears to show a battalion of stormtroopers taking on rebel forces.
The game has not yet been announced by LucasArts, but it is not entirely a mystery. In August, the company filed a trademark application for Star Wars: First Assault for "interactive video games," among other things. Additionally, www.StarWarsFirstAssault.com currently redirects to the official Star Wars website.
A LucasArts representative told IGN, "It is an exciting time at our company right now, however, we don't have any announcements at this time."
Though Star Wars: First Assault is not confirmed, LucasArts took the lid off Star Wars 1313 over the summer. That third-person action game is set beneath the surface of Coruscant, with players taking on the role of a lethal bounty hunter in a seedy atmosphere.
