The LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga is touted to be the latest and grandest Star Wars-inspired video game that LEGO and TT Games has to offer since the release of LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens back in 2016. We got a glimpse of what to expect from this game earlier in June, with a teaser trailer that suggests an immersive, all-encompassing video game experience that covers all the nine Star Wars films including material from the upcoming Star Wars conclusion in The Rise of Skywalker film. However, TT Games and WB Games only gave us some bits of info of what to expect from their latest offering, which is somewhat typical of what we can find from other LEGO video game releases: a unique kind of LEGO humor, co-op play, customizable minifig player avatars, and film-inspired locations. However, much is still wanting with regards to gameplay and other details that gamers are particular about.
Though the LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga video game is still set for a 2020 launch, we can cross our fingers and hope to see our first in-game footage at the upcoming Tokyo Game Show (TGS) in Japan. According to Gematsu and at the TGS’ official website, the said video game is part of a line-up of reveals that will find its way in Japan’s most celebrated video game event. It will be presented alongside another LEGO video game which is the LEGO Jurassic World on the Nintendo Switch platform.
For one, the TGS website makes it clear that a trailer for the LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga is slated to be presented on a soon-to-be-announced date, anytime between September 12 to 15 throughout the duration of the Tokyo Game Show. However, details are scant regarding the content of what will be presented about the game. We don’t know yet if what they will be showing is just the same, previously released teaser trailer (which is quite unlikely), or will they include new material and perhaps a few minutes of actual gameplay. I certainly hope it will be the latter.
I guess we just have to find out next week when the Tokyo Game Show 2019 commences next week. Be sure to follow our blog site for more details on this latest LEGO Star Wars video game.
