It took about a year longer than it should, but LucasArts today announced the version of the upcoming game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed in coming to the Nintendo Wii—with an exclusive lightsaber-simulating “Duel Mode.”

LucasArts today revealed that Star Wars™: The Force Unleashed™ will come to the Wii™ home videogame system from Nintendo next spring, offering owners the unique chance to live out their Jedi fantasies by wielding the Wii Remote™ as a lightsaber while using the Nunchuk™ controller to torment foes with their Force™ powers.

Yes, they really used all those trademarks.

    I’d the same thought …
    A wonder that they didn’t trademarked Jedi as well.

    after a bad day at work this has totally cheered me up. Now all I need is to be frozen in Carbonite until spring :)

    I am totally confused as to how “Nunchuck” can be TM and Jedi is not. WTF.

    Plus, I don’t care if that guy has a Lightsaber ™, that Battleship(tm) is gonna make a pancake ™ out of his ass.

    From the day I had my Wii, this is what I’ve been waiting for…
