Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron?

Yet more rumors of yet another Battlefront game. When will it end?

According to Kotaku, the ESRB has posted ratings for a new Battlefront game called Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron, being released for the PSP and DS. The ratings themselves look legit on Kotaku, but when I go to look them up on the ESRB's site, everything I searched for came up with everything BUT what I was looking for. Another rumor, another hoax.

Below are the rumored-to-be ratings.

Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron
Platform: PSP
Rating: Teen
Content descriptors: Fantasy Violence
Rating summary: “This is an action game in which players experience different battles from the Star Wars universe. Presented in a third-person perspective, the game allows players to engage in space, land, and air battles or build troops and upgrade armies in a strategy-based mode. Players can use laser guns (i.e., blasters), explosives, and lightsabers to destroy enemy robots (i.e., droids) and humans who often cry out in pain when attacked. During one dramatic cutscene sequence, an unarmed man is sliced by a lightsaber, while another character is shot in the back with a blaster.”

Platform: Nintendo DS
Rating: Everyone 10+

Rating summary: ” Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron is an action adventure game in which players experience different battles from the Star Wars universe. From a third-person perspective, players engage in space battles, ’speeder bike’ chases, and top-down battling. The ground battle includes constant laserfire combined with hand-to-hand combat using ‘lightsabers.’ A depleting health bar and various “yelps” indicate damage inflicted upon certain characters.”


Kotaku is not the only site to post this rumor. Numerous other sites have followed suit. When LucasArts was asked, they gave the usual "We do not comment on rumors or speculation."

No matter. E3 is coming. There, the truth shall be told...
