Cancelled Rogue Squadron Gameplay Footage

Among the list of LucasArts games that got the axe prior to and after the acquisition by Disney included “Star Wars Rogue Squadron: Rogue Leaders” which was in the works by video game developer Factor 5. Sadly, the company filed for bankruptcy in 2009 and so the game would go unreleased.

Recently, an “anonymous” source has provided IGN.com with two trailers (yes two!) of the cancelled factor 5 Star Wars game.

Star Wars Rogue Squadron: Rogue Leaders was revealed as one of several cancelled projects by former Factor 5 president Julian Eggebrecht. The Wii game was a compilation that featured modified versions of Star Wars Rogue Squadron: Rogue Leader and Star Wars Rogue Squadron: Rebel Strike along with additional content.

Rogue Leaders featured a new graphics engine running at 60 frames-per-second and supported multiple control schemes (including optional support for the Wii Wheel to drive an X-Wing or Speeder bike with the Balance Board pedals used to control speed.) Factor 5 also created a lightsaber dueling game using 1:1 control via Nintendo’s Wii Motion Plus peripheral.

  1. Some Guy says:

    I fail to see how this is a rogue squadron game. You know every star fighter from naboo to Rudys car? ringing any bells? A 2.5D arcade fighter would have died under this title, and was rogue leaders like the second rogue squadron anyway? And after seeing the full IGN trailer I don’t think this was legit.

  2. Spencer says:

    I havent even watched the trailer but could probably guess it would just be another wii title. Repetitive and uninspiring

  3. Cad Bane says:

    I can’t believe they failed to release this. This was the One Game everyone dreamed of playing on a Wii. Every Star Wars gamer would have bought a system just for this. Nintendo failed badly by not seeing this to release.
