Check out the third in our series of exclusive interviews with makers of Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes, set to be released on October 6, 2009.


This week we asked assistant producer Cris “Soup” Lee about the Jedi VS Clones dynamic in the game.


Jedi VS Clones

KW:What’s the theme of the game?
CL:It's a co-op action adventure game.


KW: What kind of players will like this game?
CL: Fans and gamers of all ages who love the Clone Wars TV series, and enjoy drop in/drop out co-op with friends or family. The game has something for everyone since you can play as both the Jedi or the Clones who have two distinctively different play styles.

KW: What kind of mission are the Jedi on?

KW: What abilities do the Jedi have?
CL: The Jedi like in the TV show are very acrobatic they have their lightsaber, as well as the force on their side. We're also introducing a new Jedi move in the game called the "Droid-Jak", at any time you can jump on top of and take control of any droid in the game, whether its to solve a puzzle or use the droid as a weapon is up to you!

There are the show favorites: Captain Rex, Commander Cody, Commander Gree, Commander Ponds, and the new clones are: Sergeant Kano, Boomer, Switch, and Rookie.

KW: What kind of mission are the Clones on?
CL: The clones follow the same story as our Jedi heroes, like in the show the clones and Jedi work together and so players will also be able to experience that in game by helping each other out as they uncover the story. Like I mentioned before the story begins at the end of season one, it also leads up to and bridges the gap into season two which starts this fall.

    If I could jump and swim and help, yeah I would! But if I can't, I would start running. FOR HELP. The only logical thing I can think of! Do you think this is a beautiful world?
