Details for the The Force Unleashed II have started popping up on the internet via the French gaming magazine, Consoles. Our first inclination is to exlaim that these are simply rumors until we hear an official announcement. Then again, it never hurts to try to contact LucasArts to see what can, or can not, be confirmed. The good folks at LucasArts got back to us quickly and while they didn't give firm confirmation of any specific facts, the response we got was rather positive I think...
"the full scoop can be learned in this month’s Gamepro magazine as well as other gaming mags in Europe. We’ll let those articles speak for themselves."
Well then, it looks like the info coming out of the publication may not be rumorific after all. At this point you're most likely wanting me to get to the point, so let's set out what we know based on source articles and translations from EUCantina.net and VGChartz.com:
THIS IS YOUR SPOILER WARNING! PROCEED TO THE CLIFF NOTES BELOW AT YOUR OWN RISK!
- Starkiller is a clone this go 'round with selective memories of who he used to be - Starkiller inlists the help of General Kota to search for Juno Eclipse - The planets of Cato Nemoidia and Kamino will be featured - TFU II will be compatible with PlayStation Move - The TFU sequel may include less emenies to combat than its successor, while those whom you do come across will be more powerful with better coordinated attacks - Multiplayer!!! Doesn't look like multiplayer will be just for specific consoles with TFU II
Bear in mind that the info above comes from translations so there may be some inaccuracies here and there. We'll be sure to keep you updated if more information emerges from other publications, and of course, if we get official LucasArts announcements.
