Disney Releases Absurdly Awesome New Trailer for Infinity 3.0: Star Wars Twilight of the Republic

By  | 

Do you miss The Clone Wars?  You want more Cad Bane?  How about Maul and his Mando Troopers?  Pre-Rebels Ahsoka?  Anakin before he murdered… let’s stop there.  Well for now the only place you’re going to find new Clone Wars content is Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars “Twilight of the Republic.”  Disney Infinity is one of the few areas where the PT and Clone Wars have been fully embraced.  Their starter set features Clone Wars Anakin and Ahsoka and a PT/TCW setting.

When I spoke with Disney Infinity during E3 Expo about why they chose to feature The Clone Wars, the answer was simple and awesome – The PT era has the most Jedi and that maximizes the options for amazing hand-to-hand combat in the game.  The combat, developed by Ninja Theory, is fantastic–easy for the beginning Padawan (like me) but also loaded with combinations to keep even the Jedi Master engaged.

Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars “Twilight of the Republic” launches August 30th and you can pre-order it now.

Check out the trailer and additional information below.
