Lightsaber Duels, Wii have them

The debut trailer for Star Wars: The Clone Wars — Lightsaber Duels features plenty of action, and we think you’ll agree that it looks delectable. It’s still early on, and LucasArts doesn’t want to give too much away, but it was hard to stifle the anticipation of seeing the camera pan away — just for a second — to give us a shot of the Wiimote in action.

That shot never came; unfortunately, but it’s still nice to see some of those familiar faces dueling through the Clone Wars, during their heyday. As history (and a few movies) has shown, not all of them are around to entertain us these days. Perhaps the Wii and DS will be remembered for capturing them in their time of glory. Or, as some have said, the games are going to disappoint fans on a monumental level due to a lack of one-to-one Wiimote swordplay. Nonsense! I think you know which side I’m on.
