WATCH: Trailer arrives for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

August 27th, 2020 by Marc Comments

We have a full game-play trailer for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga and it looks like a serious amount of fun.

The game, as the title reveals, covers the prequels, the originals and the Disney era and, we’re hearing, will also have a deluxe edition with a Character Bundle Pack with six DLC packs for The Mandalorian, Rogue One and the just recently announced The Bad Batch – although this may just be (just!) a Clone Wars add-on.

Here’s the official write-up:

There are plenty of serious cinematic moments in the latest trailer for the upcoming LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga — from Luke Skywalker’s heroic X-wing trench run on the Death Star to the daring lightsaber duel between Rey and Kylo Ren on Kef Bir. But what sets the saga-sweeping game apart from other immersive Star Wars storytelling and high-flying adventures is LEGO’s cheeky sense of humor.

In a new trailer that is somehow both emotionally charged — that score! — and laugh out loud funny — those porgs in a cloak! — we get the best of both worlds ahead of the game’s arrival in spring of 2021 on the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PC and Mac.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
