Publisher Disney Interactive has released a trailer for the upcoming “Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic” set, while “Disney Infinity 3.0” is only a few weeks away before its release. The story of the set is an original one, which takes place during the timeline of the “Clone Wars” cartoon, with appearances from Anakin Skywalker and his padawan from the series Ahsoka Tano.
What is really noteworthy of the trailer is the return of Darth Maul, the villain from “Star Wars: Episode One – The Phantom Menace.” The villain was seemingly killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi during the film but made a surprise return during the “Clone Wars” cartoon. IGN confirmed that Sam Witwer would once again be voicing the mysterious villain, reprising his role from the “Clone Wars” animated series.
Other villains are set to return from the “Clone Wars” series as well, including General Grevious and bounty hunter Cad Bane. However, Maul is given the brunt of the focus in the trailer, spouting menacing lines and even fighting off a massive force push from Anakin, Obi-Wan and Ahsoka.
The trailer also indicates that this will be one of the more action-packed sets for “Disney Infinity 3.0.” The trailer also features a ton of lightsaber battles against an army of droids, with Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ahsoka and Yoda getting in on the action.
Fans, who prefer the original trilogy, have nothing to worry about, as Super Hero Hype has confirmed a separate set that will feature characters and settings from the original “Star Wars” trilogy. Playable characters include Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia and more.
Interestingly enough, fans will be able to use any character from the “Star Wars” timeline in any of the game’s settings, so those, who want Anakin to team up with Chewbacca or have Darth Vader kill Jar Jar Binks, can finally do so in “Disney Infinity 3.0.”
“Disney Infinity 3.0” will be available on Aug. 30 for all major consoles, computers and mobile devices. Aside from “Star Wars,” the game will also have sets and characters based on Disney movies and specific storylines from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
