Slipped to 2021, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will take a little longer to drop out of hyperspace than first expected. A new trailer shown during Gamescom Opening Night Live has confirmed it for a spring 2021 release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
The Skywalker Saga was first revealed at E3 2019 and was initially expected to be out this year. It is an all-new retelling of all nine films (yes, including Rise of Skywalker), with the idea of being the definitive Lego Star Wars game.
A gameplay demo I saw last year showed Tatooine, one of the game’s many open world areas, built in a new engine for the long-running Lego series. It looked ambitious – with the promise of being able to land there in any one of the saga’s three main time periods.
Last year’s teaser for the game suggested it might feature the Lego series’ classic method of storytelling without voiceover clips – simply using grunts and other sounds from its characters to convey jokes and meaning. But last night’s trailer confirmed new dialogue has indeed been recorded.
