It might be out tomorrow, but we just had to bring you these images of Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, because they might just be some of the best screenshots we've ever seen. First up we've got Leia in that golden bikini, trapped in Jabba the Hut's cavernous palace. It's weird, but we like it.
Hit the images tab to see more great pics, featuring everyone's favourite furry slingshot-packing Ewok, Wicket; Darth Vader coming between the Emperor and his son,

Xbox 360 gamers will be able to download Star Wars prequel characters from Xbox Live Marketplace to feature in their Lego Star Wars II game when it is released in September.
As if you needed more reasons to fall in love with Lego Star Wars II, the ability to import characters from Episodes I to III with a save from the original game was the transparent red bit to crown the plastic cake. It did, however, leave a question over how Xbox 360 owners - who didn't get Lego
There's so much riding on Link this time - quite literally, on occasions when he transforms into a wolf - that new screens can only make us want it more. And it's fair to say that the shots Nintendo has released (available by clicking the Images tab) make us want it very much indeed.

To celebrate today's UK release of Let's Make a Soccer Team! we've teamed up with Sega to give away a PlayStation 2 and a copy of the game. Five runners-up will net themselves a copy of the game.
Let's Make a Soccer Team! has been a wild success in Japan and looks set to do well here too, with its engaging football management gameplay. You'll be given the opportunity to create your own team from scratch in one of six countries and then lead them to success against
Poppin' heads, galactic style
The clever, slightly off-kilter folks over at LucasArts have put together an unusual little promo for the upcoming LEGO Star Wars II: the Original Trilogy. The game's official website now enables you to choose a head, body, and leggy area from 20 of the game's characters to create your own freakish hero.
Just hit the link above, click the brick-like link that says, "create your character", and you're all set. We prefer the "mix it up" button, which chooses the
We've unearthed some new shots of The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (check out the Images tab for more), which will continue the story and cartoon visual style of 2003's Wind Waker when it is released for DS next year.
It's still Zelda as you know it - townsfolk to talk to, grass to cut, dungeons to explore - but using the DS stylus for all actions, issuing directions for Link rather than direct control. Hungry for more? Hit up our earlier

Industrious first-person shooter developer Free Radical is apparently going all-out on next-gen development - as well as its E3-announced next-gen shooter, Haze, it's just been revealed that it's also working on a game for Star Wars bods, LucasArts.
No details have yet been released, although we noticed that, compared to LucasArts' announcement earlier in the month that it would be publishing a "new intellectual property" from MechAssault developer Day 1 Studios, the

In preparation of the 22 September launch of LMA Manager 2007, we've gathered a handful of new screenshots and a video from the PC and Xbox 360 versions of the footie management sim.

Now that Dead Rising has won the hearts and wallets of Xbox 360 gamers, attention turns to Capcom's next game for the system, Lost Planet. We're getting a hands-on report ready for a little later in the week, but we didn't want to wait before we delivered these fresh screens along to you (hit the Images tab above). Players use Vital Suits to brave the climate's extreme cold temperatures - though as the images show, the cold's going to be the least of your worries. Check out our existing
