I sat down with the guys from THQ Wireless and they were super cool. Their Director of Global Production, Brad Pitser, gave me the down-lo on Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and also gave us the exclusive on their update to PhoneSaber, LightSaber Unleashed.

The new PhoneSaber app may let you actually wield a Light Saber.
Due to a conflict of copyright ownership, PhoneSaber has been removed from the iTunes App Store. THQ Wireless owns the rights to any and all Star Wars material for mobile which means the app had to be pulled. On a happier note, the developers behind PhoneSaber are working with THQ Wireless to release a fully branded version of the app. Expect a fully redesigned and awesome version of the app to be released in the near future.
THQ Wireless has announced an agreement with Lucasfilms Ltd. to create mobile games and other content based on the franchises Indiana Jones and Star Wars.
The first games to be released will be Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, scheduled for later this year, and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, scheduled for 2008. The latter game puts players in control of Darth Vader’s apprentice in the era between Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. The company will follow up the two Star Wars games with a title based on the upcoming movie Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
