TT Games discussed new details about LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga in a recent interview with Nintendo Everything.
In the interview, Arthur Parsons and James Burgon, creative leads at TT Games, revealed a bit about the game’s new engine. “We can say that it’s brand new technology, from the ground up. Everything with this game is brand new tech. We’ve never used this tech before.”
In regards to the game’s development on the Switch, Burgon said it has been “like a dream.” TT Games is making sure they can give Switch the same experience as more powerful platforms.
Nintendo Everything also asked Parsons and Burgon about content carryover between games. “Yeah, sure. So let’s say you’ve unlocked a bunch of characters. You have free play in all of the games, and you’re free to use all of those characters as you unlock them. You’ll make the galaxy expand the more you play it, as well. The things that you collect, the kind of bricks, the unlockables—that kind of thing carries through with you as well,” said Parsons.
The Skywalker Saga will be a redeveloping of all seven previous LEGO Star Wars games, as well as the first release of The Last Jedi and Rise of Skywalker entries.
The game will be released for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Check out the announcement trailer below.
