First announced at E3 2019, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has been pushed back multiple times. As such, today's announcement should come as welcome news for those excited to experience the game. The Skywalker Saga is an ambitious offering, covering all nine main entries in the Star Wars series, including the original trilogy, as well as the prequel, and sequel trilogies. In total, the game will offer more than 300 playable characters, including fan favorites like Luke, Han, and Leia, as well as obscure faces like Yaddle. The game will also feature 45 levels in total, with five covering each of the films. Players will also have the option of starting from any of the trilogies, as opposed to starting with the prequels.
Now that the game has gone gold, it will be interesting to see if LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga can live up to the hype! The prospect of playing through all of these adventures in one format is sure to be an exciting one for players of all ages, and the LEGO Star Wars games have built a passionate audience over the years. Hopefully, TT Games will manage to stick the landing!
