PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners jealous about the Star Wars Clone Wars love other consoles have gotten may soon be able to rest easy. Sources familiar with the project have indicated that Australian-based Krome Studios is hard at work on developing Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes, a third-person action title for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Details on the game is scarce, but we're told Republic Heroes will feature a two-player cooperative mode, with both "Jedi" and "Clone" story missions. Players are said to play as Anakin Skywalker or Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano in a Jedi mode, and (at the very least) bounty hunter Cad Bane in the Clone missions. The game will have a focus on melee combat, complete with upgrades that can be purchased throughout the game. The ability to control droids, such as the rolling Droideka, was also mentioned by our tipster.

Krome Studios has experience with the Star Wars license, having previously worked on the Wii/PlayStation Portable/PlayStation 2 ports of Star Wars: The Forced Unleashed. More recently, the studio released Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Light Saber Duels for the Wii. Their next-gen action game pedigree includes Hellboy: Science of Evil for PS3 and Xbox 360 for Konami.  

When contacted, a representative from Krome Studios told us "We can’t comment on rumours and speculation." Request for comment from LucasArts has yet to be returned.
