Star Wars: The Force Unleashed coming to the iPhone


The upcoming Star Wars-themed game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is a title that a lot of console gamers are looking forward to, especially Wii owners who can’t wait to wield their Wii Remote as a lightsaber.

But, the new gaming platform on the block–the Apple iPhone–will be getting the game as well thanks to THQ Wireless.

Don’t worry–you won’t have to swing your iPhone around as a lightsaber and risk smashing your precious into something. The iPhone’s accelerometer will only be used to switch between portrait and landscape view.

You will, however, be able use the iPhone’s touchscreen to control the action o the screen and to navigate through dialog boxes.

CrunchGear got their hands on a video of the game in action–definitely worth checking out if. Beginning around the 2:42 mark things start to get a bit more interesting as you’ll see how to use the touchscreen to control action including the use of force powers.

You can watch the video here.
