The game will let you experience memorable moments and non-stop action from all nine episodes in the Star Wars saga. Whether starting at the beginning with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, the original trilogy with Star Wars: A New Hope, or Star Wars: The Last Jedi, you can expect the movies to be reimagined with LEGO fun and humour.
The game’s new overview trailer has also revealed that it will have a Mumble Mode, which has been offered as an option so “that fans of the classic LEGO Star Wars games can toggle to replace all voices with mumbles!”
With the biggest roster of playable characters and vehicles in the LEGO Star Wars series, you can create your own unique journey through the galaxy. You will traverse space using the galaxy map on your holoprojector to chart your course through the saga, unlocking planets to explore as you progress.
You can revisit any planet at any time and in any order that you wish, with the chance to jump to lightspeed in the Millennium Falcon to outrun Imperial starships, battle First Order TIE fighters in Resistance X-wings, or podrace on Tatooine. At each location, you can choose whether to continue with the main story or to explore your location to complete quests and puzzles.
Such exploration will reward you with Kyber bricks, which can be used to unlock new features and upgraded abilities across the game’s many character classes – such as Jedi, Hero, Dark Side, Villain, Scavenger, Scoundrel, Bounty Hunter, Astromech Droid, and Protocol Droid.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 5th April 2022.
Those that pre-order the game digitally will receive early access to the Trooper Character Pack on launch day. This will be made available a month after launch for those that purchase it separately or through the Character Collection – which is a Season Pass with all seven character packs. Digital purchases will also be rewarded with the chance to unlock the Classic Obi-Wan Kenobi playable character that is not available for purchase separately.
