    The original trailer did not include the Wii symbol, but NOW it is confirmed that it will be a Wii release (sweet for us)

    LucasArts to Unleash the Force on the Wii in Spring 2008
    By LucasArts
    Press Release -- This Content Was Not Created By GameSpot
    Posted Sep 18, 2007 1:15 pm PT

    SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. Sept. 18, 2007 LucasArts today revealed that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will come to the Wii home videogame system from Nintendo next spring, offering owners the unique chance to live out their Jedi fantasies by wielding the Wii Remote as a lightsaber while using the Nunchuk controller to torment foes with their Force powers.

    The Force Unleashed casts players as Darth Vader's "Secret Apprentice" and promises to unveil new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy. The game's expansive story is set during the largely unexplored era between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. In it, players will assist the iconic villain in his quest to rid the universe of Jedi and face decisions that could change the course of their destiny.

    The Wii version, in development by Krome Studios, will also add an exclusive duel mode in which players can compete head-to-head with their friends to determine the ultimate Jedi Master.

    "The Wii is a great platform for The Force Unleashed, because the console's motion-oriented controllers really bring the game to life," said Jim Ward, President of LucasArts. "We've worked hard to make the Wii version of the game unique in order to truly let you unleash the Force."

    More About Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

    The Force Unleashed is the first next-generation game developed internally at LucasArts, and will be available on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATION3 computer entertainment system.

    As its name implies, The Force Unleashed completely re-imagines the scope and scale of the Force by taking full advantage of newly developed technologies that will be seen and experienced for the first time: Digital Molecular Matter, by Pixelux Entertainment, and euphoria by NaturalMotion Ltd.

    "The combination of our great story, memorable characters, and the revolutionary new technology that we're introducing will deliver something Star Wars fans have never seen before, in addition to attracting newcomers to gaming, something that is very important to us," added Ward.

    LucasArts and developer Krome Studios are creating an equally enthralling version of The Force Unleashed on the Wii, PlayStation2 computer entertainment system and PSP (PlayStationPortable) system, and n-Space, Inc., is developing a version for the Nintendo DS. All will feature the same storyline, with opportunities to unleash the Force in devastating new ways.

    Working with Lucas Licensing, LucasArts is preparing an unprecedented promotional effort around the launch of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, encompassing a full line of toys and game-based action figures from Hasbro, as well as a full publishing program from Dark Horse, Del Rey and Palace Press.

    More information about the game can be found at the official website, www.theforceunleashed.com, which will continue to release details throughout the year.

    Looks good but I can't help but notice there is no Wii symbol on the website. I can't see the Wii version looking like that either.

    It sounds very nice, but I hope that they produce a decent game with this idea. I really hope that the controls feel natural and not as if they were added on at the last minute before release.

    For those who are confused...

    There is no wii symbol on the website because when the site was made, they hadnt decided whether to make the game for wii or not. However it has been confirmed and reconfirmed since that it IS coming to wii.

    The problem is that all the vids and screenshots only show what it will look like on PS3. We dont have a clue how well the wiimote will be adapted to a lightsaber. We dont have a clue how good the graphics will look, or how much of this 'advanced intelligent' gameplay the site describes will be available to wii.

    The wii is exactly the game system lucas arts have been waiting for ever since starwars came out. A game where you can actually have a proper light saber battle. Its fundamentally what its all about. Actually being a jedi (or equivalent).
    They have seriously dropped the ball with this.
    Either they didnt think (understandably) that wii would be a success and so didnt plan to do anything for it. Or, didnt want to make force unleashed for wii, and favoured making a star wars game JUST for wii to do the game and system justice; then realised it would take ages and cost alot, so at the last minute have decided to just port accross the PS2 version. This means the game play wont be nearly as involved as it could. The graphics wont be as good as they should. And the controls will be an 'add on' support for the wiimote, and wont be the fluid motion imitation into a lightsaber as we all have wanted ever since we heard about the wii.
    Unfortunately you're right.
