The ESRB's been a goldmine lately. After all the PSOne Classics listings spotted on the ratings site, now we have not just ratings but full-on descriptions for a new handheld game in the Star Wars Battlefront series.
The game is called Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron and is supposedly for the PSP and DS. LucasArts hasn't said anything apart from the usual "We don't comment on rumors and speculation" bit. In any case, here are the descriptions from the ESRB:
PSP - Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron is an action adventure game in which players experience different battles from the Star Wars universe. From a third-person perspective, players engage in space battles, 'speeder bike' chases, and top-down battling. The ground battle includes constant laserfire combined with hand-to-hand combat using 'lightsabers.' A depleting health bar and various "yelps" indicate damage inflicted upon certain characters."
DS - This is an action game in which players experience different battles from the Star Wars universe. Presented in a third-person perspective, the game allows players to engage in space, land, and air battles or build troops and upgrade armies in a strategy-based mode. Players can use laser guns (i.e., blasters), explosives, and lightsabers to destroy enemy robots (i.e., droids) and humans who often cry out in pain when attacked. During one dramatic cutscene sequence, an unarmed man is sliced by a lightsaber, while another character is shot in the back with a blaster.
