lego concept art

Game Informer has continued to release snippets from their cover story on LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In addition to revealing some new concept art and early renderings (see above), they spoke to Lead Designer Josh Pickering Pick on what it was like to build the game’s Jakku level:

I think this one just works really well.  It’s nice and varied, you get to slide down this section here, and then you land into this arena area where you have some gameplay, then you move into the hangar as well. It’s destroyed and darker inside. For one level it’s got quite a few unique areas visually, which is always a challenge.

If you’ve been to an up-to-date video game arcade recently chances are strong that you’ve seen Star Wars: Battle Pod, a state-of-the-art combination of arcade shooter and simulator that places you directly into several conflicts from the original Star Wars trilogy. Now, the game is getting an update. The Battle of Takodana is coming to Battle Pod in May, allowing players to recreate the dogfight between the Resistance and the First Order in the sky over Maz Kanata’s castle.

One of the biggest unanswered questions in The Force Awakens revolves around Poe Dameron survived that TIE Fighter crash and got off Jakku, especially since he managed to get back to the Resistance before the other heroes could get to Maz Kanata. Thankfully, Star Wars Minute has the answer to this question for those of us who haven’t had the chance to dive into every piece of supplementary material out there.
