LucasArts' upcoming Star Wars The Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels for the Wii is one step closer to the fan-requested lightsaber-dueling game that seems like a perfect fit for the motion-controlled console. The game is based on the film of the same name, which is part of a lengthy daisy chain of content that includes a forthcoming CG television show. The core of the multimedia blitz is a story that follows Obi-Wan Kenobi and pre-Padme-freak-out Anakin Skywalker, aka Darth Vader, as they fight against the evil Sith and the separatist forces.
For those keeping your timelines in order at home, the movie, television series, and game all take place between Episodes II and III. GameSpot recently had the chance to get an updated look at the game at LucasArts' offices.
