Ubisoft Unveils Star Wars: Lethal Alliance

Ubisoft has just announced the first original Star Wars game for the PSP and NDS handheld systems will hit stores in December! The game takes place in the space between Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV A New Hope. Playing as Twi’lek Rianna Saren and her security droid Zeeo the heros are tasked with uncovering the Empire’s most deadly secret – the Death Star. Key Features:

One-of-a-kind collaborative fighting: Combine the elite weaponry and acrobatic skills of Rianna with the multifunctional defensive and slicing support of Zeeo to create a formidable team. Only by working together can you complete perilous missions and ultimately steal the plans for the Death Star.

Epic gameplay and cinematic action: From the chaotic planet of Coruscant to the dusty, dangerous alleys of Mos Eisley, Rianna and Zeeo must use an arsenal of tricks to complete their mission. Set up holographic disguises to fool Imperial guards, commandeer gun turrets, master death-defying flying escapes and battle carnivorous beasts.

First original Star Wars game built exclusively for handhelds: Multiplayer modes enhance collaborative gameplay while taking advantage of the unique capabilities of both the PSP system and Nintendo DS.

Iconic environments and characters: Your mission takes you to classic destinations such as the Death Star and Tatooine, and allows you to discover never-before-seen locations on Despayre, Danuta and Alderaan. Each new environment offers encounters with unforgettable Star Wars characters and species, including Boba Fett, Kyle Katarn, Princess Leia Organa, Darth Vader, Imperial officers, Rodians, Quarren and stormtroopers.

Let's hope that they don't screw this up. I'll try to get some screen shots up once Ubi has them posted to the press site.
