Announced at E3 2019, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga tells the story of the 9 episode saga, from Phantom Menace to the recently released The Rise of Skywalker. Unlike 2007’s LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, This new game doesn’t just aim to remaster and package together multiple games into one bigger package. In an interview with Nintendo Everything, Travelers Tales’ Arthur Parsons and James Burgon sat down with Oni_Dino to discuss the new game, with Parsons talking about how this was chosen over just simply making individual games for The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker, and simply releasing another LEGO Star Wars : The Complete Saga.
It’s because we want to give everyone everything that they could possibly want. We did Episode 7, and at the time we looked at that and we thought that’s a great experience, and rather than just do 8 next time, let’s do a whole thing. Let’s rebuild it from the ground up, from scratch. This isn’t like a normal LEGO game. This is a big step-up for us, so we wanted to take the opportunity to take that big step up with all new tech, and just make it the ultimate Star Wars celebration. All nine movies. So it just seemed to make sense when we looked at it like that. You don’t take a big step like this and miss the opportunity to go big with the content as well.Arthur Parsons, Travelers Tales’
The saga is 42 years in the making, and it wraps up this year. It needs a big sendoff, and that’s what we wanted to do.James Burgon, Travelers Tales’
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga launches on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch sometime in 2020.
