LucasArts today announced that Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron is headed to the PSP and Nintendo DS this fall.
The title pits players in “multi-level” intergalactic battlefronts, arenas that encompass both ground and space. Promising a “deep and engrossing single player campaign,” the title’s story spans the entire Star Wars Saga and beyond. Players assume the role of X2, a force-sensitive clone fraught with a blood stained past. Seeking to reedem himself, X2 joins the the chastise-seeking faction of Rebellion in a struggle against the Empire to bring his DNA-matching twin, otherwise known as X1, to justice.
Both versions will offer a level of character customization, with the Rebellion-developed PSP title offering the “deepest customization options ever seen in a Star Wars Battlefront title.” That includes everything from their species to gender appearance and physical attributes. Additionally, the PSP take will offer 16-way multiplayer matches while the DS iteration, which is being handled by n-Space, will sport 4-person skirmishes across a number of gameplay modes.
