More On: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2
According to Gaming Target, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 is coming to every current-gen platform, which means PC, 360, PS3, Wii and DS. Red Fly is doing the Wii build, Aspyr Media is handling the PC side of things and LucasArts is developing the rest. I'm surprised that n-Space isn't doing the DS version, considering their previous involvement and long history of successful DS development, including Activision's portable Call of Duty titles.

Unfortunately I expected that Australia-based Krome Studios wouldn't be doing the Wii port again, considering the layoffs they had recently, but I'm happy to see Red Fly handling it after their creative and endearing original IP Mushroom Men. Hopefully Red Fly will do some interesting things with Wii MotionPlus--four years without a lightsaber game is four too many. That said, I'm still pretty meh about the whole thing--it's just more emo Star Wars, making the period between the prequels and the classic trilogy more muddled and convoluted than they already are. Call me a curmudgeon, but when you've been a Star Wars fan since you were three years old, it pretty much comes with the territory.
