To celebrate the Vault Project's 6th anniversary we present this unseen footage from Star Wars: 1313 showing Boba Fett in action. Very interesting to see considering the famous E3 demo showed off a version of the game prior to the character switch.

Dynasty Warriors developers want to make a Star Wars Musou game

“A lot of different IP and works have been brought up”

Dynasty Warriors series producer Akihiro Suzuki has revealed that he would like to make a Star Wars Musou game.

Speaking to JPgames, the producer mentioned that there are often discussions within his team about which IP they’d love to work on.

“Within the dev team, a lot of different IP and works have been brought up,” he said. “This is solely my own opinion, but my own personal wish would be for a Star Wars crossover.”

The producer also revealed his hopes for the Dynasty Warriors series going forward, specifically with how the move to the current generation of consoles may impact future games.

“I’d like to be able to increase the sense of immersion into the battlefield through more realistic depictions, especially through the visual representation and the individual movement (AI) of every single soldier,” he said. “Also, if we can have multiple people playing simultaneously online, that would be really fun.”

EA recently announced three new Star Wars projects from Respawn Entertainment, including a sequel to Jedi Fallen Order.

As well as the sequel, a Star Wars first-person shooter game is being helmed by former LucasArts veteran and Medal of Honor co-creator Peter Hirschmann, who has previously worked on the original Battlefront games, The Force Unleashed and more.

Respawn’s third Star Wars project is a strategy game developed through a production collaboration with Bit Reactor, which is a new studio formed by veterans of XCOM and Civilization studio Firaxis Games.

Quantic Dream, the independent developer behind narrative games Detroit and Heavy Rain, also recently announced Star Wars Eclipse, which is reportedly inspired The Last of Us.

Star Wars Eclipse will reportedly introduce a new race, and focus on a political conflict

Story details allegedly appear for Quantic Dream’s RPG

New Star Wars Eclipse details have reportedly emerged, claiming the game will introduce a new race to the Star Wars Universe.

Story details, including some of the main characters, have also been described in a new report from Sacred Symbols (paywalled, transcribed by VGC).

The game, which was announced during The Game Awards last year, is reportedly still in very early production.” This game, as far as I can tell, is not even really in production yet,” said Sacred Symbols host Colin Moriarty.

The podcast then goes on to describe documents provided to them which appear to give an overview of one of the game’s main characters, as well as their motivations. The podcast also notes that the game is being co-written by David Cage and Adam Williams, who have previously helmed other Quantic Dream titles.

“Materials seen by this podcast describe a so-called Project S, with a character named Sarah as the lead. Sarah is described as an athletic 30-something and is a member of a human-like race. This race is at the lead of some sort of empire called The Zaraan, a race not seen in Star Wars before.

“It prides itself on political and military aggression and similar to what you find elsewhere in Star Wars there’s little differentiation between males and females when it comes to roles and responsibilities. But, there’s an interesting wrinkle, when Zaraan marries, their nuptials carry interesting military implications as they become one governing unit that works together.

“This is a problem, because Sarah, a fanatical true believer in the violence and criminality regularly demonstrated by her empire, is married to a character named Xendo, who is a far softer touch. Part of the game seems to revolve around these two characters and their relationship.”

This “empire” seemingly refers to the Zaraan faction, not the Galactic Empire seen during the Skywalker era of Star Wars. Star Wars Eclipse takes place at least 200 years before Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace.

It’s unclear if this plot is the one that will be used for the final game, as little to nothing official has emerged about the project since it was first announced during The Game Awards.

In December, it was confirmed that Eclipse is set in the High Republic era. The game was announced during The Game Awards.

“Star Wars Eclipse is the first video game to be set in an uncharted region of the Outer Rim during The High Republic era, known as the golden age of the Jedi,” Quantic Dream said.

“The game will build upon Quantic Dream’s expertise in delivering deeply branching narratives and will go beyond their already established acclaim. Player’s choices will be at the heart of the experience, as every decision can have a dramatic impact on the course of the story.”

The first trailer shows off impressive visuals including footage of Yoda and the planet of Naboo.
