DeNA, The Walt Disney Company, and Lucasfilm have recently announced that they are now collaborating on the development of a brand new game, Star Wars: Galactic Defense. Available later this year for iOS devices, Star Wars: Galactic Defense is the first free-to-play tower defense mobile game to include both prequel and classic parts of Star Wars. This all-new tower defense game combines iconic characters and battles with strategic gameplay to always keep things fresh and exciting. From there players can choose their side — light or dark — as they explore different Star Wars locations, gain abilities to change the tide of battle, and connect online with their friends other others in real-time.
“Star Wars is a franchise that has touched us all at DeNA and we’re honored to work with Disney and Lucasfilm on Star Wars: Galactic Defense,” said Barry Dorf, vice president of partnerships and alliances at DeNA. “We can’t use the Force™, but we do have one of the world’s most talented and passionate mobile development teams working to create an unforgettable Star Wars gameplay experience.”
