Folks have been watching the console version of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
because it looks like it's going to be the benchmark for kicking ass with The Force
in video games. The DS version hasn't received much focus in the discussion revolving around the game, so little has been said on exactly what DS owners should expect from the handheld title. That is, until now.
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
will supposedly employ a third-person perspective when playing the game, much like the console versions, but there will be 2D animated cutscenes instead of the highly-detailed snippets found in the game for consoles. Moving your character around will be handled with the d-pad, while interacting with the game will be handled primarily with the stylus. Also, there will be a multiplayer mode allowing for up to four players to enjoy over wireless, though further details on that are not currently available.
Sounds good to us, we hope the control scheme can be pulled off. We'd like to be able to kick ass with The Force outside
the comfort of our own home, as well as within in.
