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.
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.
