Back in August, trademarks and a domain name – StarWarsFirstAssault.com – popped up, leading us to believe that LucasArts had another Star Wars game waiting in the wings. Now, cover art for that supposed title has appeared and it looks like the title is heading to the Xbox Live Arcade.
Spotted by NeoGAF users, the image you see above is currently hosted on Microsoft's Xbox.com. As I'm sure you've already noticed, it is clearly labeled with Xbox 360's signature “Arcade” designation at the top, pretty much proving that the game is in fact making its way to XBLA, possibly in the near future.
Even though this leak makes things pretty apparent, LucasArts didn't have much to say in a recent statement to IGN:
“It is an exciting time at our company right now, however we don't have any announcements at this time.”
I have been dreaming of the day LucasArts announces the long-rumored Star Wars: Battlefront III and though Star Wars: First Assault clearly isn't that game, it may just be something along the same lines. Sadly, for now it's all just speculation and wishful thinking. Until LucasArts makes an official announcement, we'll just have to keep dreaming.
