Exciting news for Lego Star Wars fans young and old…. Tesco Entertainment recently announced that ‘Lego Star Wars 3’ will be released on March 22 in North America! Expect to find it for the PS3, PSP, Xbox 360, Wii, DS, PC and 3DS consoles.

All the features you’ve grown to love from the hugely successful Lego Star Wars games have returned full force.  Not only that, you’ll also find brand new weapons, dangerous enemies and taxing puzzles that will take you on a thrilling journey through different areas.

‘Lego Star Wars 3’ is based on the ‘The Clone Wars’ animated TV series and is the most action packed Lego Star Wars game yet. You won’t want to miss feature missions from the brilliant TV series as well as scenes and all the favorite characters from the Original Star Wars epic, ‘Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.’

Ground battles, boss fights and multi-layered space combat await you and make this the most challenging and engaging game to date in the series. Players will be able to land their craft and continue their battles on land. Strategy comes more into the game as players now have command over their armies across different battlefields.

A new scene swap feature of the multiplayer mode allows players to switch between teams to take on and defeat their enemies. With split screen combat this computer game is undoubtedly going to provide endless entertainment for the multiplayer fans around the world.

Visual improvements make the graphics cutting edge and include lighting enhancements, which give you a greater sense of space and depth, hence pulling you deeper into the Lego Star Wars world.

I don’t know about you, but I’m really looking forward to playing this newest game in the series.  I’ll buy it for my kids, but don’t think I won’t be playing it while they’re in school – the whole Lego Star Wars series is just too much fun to pass up.  If this game is anywhere near as good as the ones previously released then it’ll definitely be money well spent.
