DeNA is exploring a brand new area in the Star Wars universe and working on Star Wars: Galactic Defense, a tower-defense game that pits the Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire against each other.
Players in Star Wars: Galactic Defense will choose to join the Light Side or the Dark Side and then build towers to defend their own side from the attack of the other. The game mechanics sounds traditional with established concepts like increasingly tougher levels and tower updates. And there will be both single-player campaign and multiplayer matchups. Set in the Star Wars franchise, the game will feature iconic characters from the original and prequels and send players into familiar locations like Endor and Hoth.
Star Wars: Galactic Defense has a scheduled release sometime this year. And it will be free-to-play on iOS and Android, both phones and tablets.It invites players for pre-registration on the official site, calling on players to register now and complete bonus missions to earn free in-game rewards including the infamous Darth Maul.
