Guess who shows up in this Force Unleashed II video?!

LucasArts had been playing coy, confirming only to the appearance of Dagobah in The Force Unleashed II, but the cat’s out of the bag now. Well, given that there’s not really another resident living there capable of delivering a line in English, this is only a surprise if you are absolutely incapable of drawing obvious conclusions based on a ridiculous amount of evidence and precedent. Sorry, ahem… YODA IS IN THE FORCE UNLEASHED II!

The video shows Johnny “Commander Jack Shepard” Starkiller trading cryptic dialog with the galaxy’s favorite backwards talker, although not much else is revealed. However, the latest issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine just so happens to feature Yoda on the cover, and we’re hearing whispers that they might have the world's first hands-on with TFU2 as well. 

Above: And by "whipsers" we mean the cover's headline

Nice to see how well this is all keeping in step with the spirit of The Empire Strikes Back, currently in the throes of its 30th anniversary. We’re not only getting Yoda, but we’ve also been promised that The Force Unleashed II will be the darker entry of the series, thus following in the footsteps of the greatest Star Wars anything ever made! Hell, maybe if we all yell Lando at the same time we’ll get a little Billy Dee action too!

    Man the first game was awesome hopefully the second game is even better
  • shyfonzie - August 13, 2010 9:45 p.m.

    Ooh, the actual score. Enticing, like the smell of fresh pizza.

    Frank Oz in the House!! "Whats in there?" "Only what you take with you." "I'm not afraid" "You will be, you will be" One of the best Star Wars moments.

    Erm...I dont want to sound cynical or anything, but I really hope they're not just creating an Empire Strikes Back Rip-off and hoping that the game will be just as awesome as the movie. Starkiller's hand better not get sliced off by Vader.

    @elpurplemonkey I have a feeling that this one really won't fit into cannon the way that the first one did. I haven't heard anything about a tie-in novel or anything like that this time around. I'm one of those folks who loved the first game, I can even get past the lock-on system, but I really hope that the fix the get-up animations this time around. I hated the fact that you were completely vulnerable for a good five seconds when you were knocked down (even longer when the ground wasn't level and you started to slide), and in some cases you were actually standing but could still be hit because Starkiller wasn't ready to block just yet.

    Looks and sounds pretty good. I hope they fix the animation before release. Starkiller walks like he shit his pants.
  • elpurplemonkey - August 13, 2010 7:15 a.m.

    I still don't understand how what's going on with the story in the second one. This Starkiller is supposed to be a clone? I mean, the first one actually made sense in the Star Wars cannon and fits nicely, but it is starting to feel a little forced with part two. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the original- especially the story. And I'm looking forward to this one, but I'm having trouble seeing how it will fit into the cannon.

    I thought the lock on in the first game really spoilt your meat and spuds gameplay but, that and a few shoddy boss encounters(and how, later on, did, seemingly, EVERYONE get hold of force powers in that game?)TFU1 was actually a bit better than it got credit for. If they CAN make this one a bit darker and sort a couple of issues out(underpowered light saber being THE most obvious with the lock on, of course, being up there too)I'm not too bothered about canon-it's a game and has to be played with SOME kind of hope for a surprise ending and some freedom to craft it's own space-I draw the line at us killing Boba Fett, mind, as that's just a continuity nightmare and, surely, for the most feared bounty hunter EVER he's got to have at least ONE fight he doesn't lose, no? Then again, I'm no SW expert these days so I probably don't count anyway. Still, looks pretty cool and if it can finally live up to the hopes we had first time round everyone's a happy bunny.
  • crimsonmoose - August 13, 2010 6:22 a.m.

    wow, i didnt play the first one but i want to play this one. and it looks good visually too
  • batman5273 - August 13, 2010 5:48 a.m.

    good this game looks, looking forward to it, i am!
  • theemporer - August 13, 2010 5:03 a.m.

    Have cameo appearance, I must.
  • SkyDragonc5 - August 13, 2010 4:25 a.m.

    These cut scenes look amazing. I think this series is one of the few that pays really good homage to the first three movies.
  • geneticallyalteredsupergiraffeejaculatinggrenades - August 13, 2010 3:34 a.m.

    Its good to see that even spambots can get excited about Star Wars
  • YoshiAteMyBaby - August 13, 2010 3:29 a.m.

    Lucasarts told the fired staff of the original game they'd get to see some green from the second, but I bet this isn't what they had in mind.
  • Doctalen - August 13, 2010 2:56 a.m.

    I see what you did with that Mass Effect refernce. On another note YODA IS IN SWTFU2!!!!!!! Though who will Starkiller be fighting in cave, a Vader/Juno combo or a Proxy/Rancor thingy? The world may never know... till the release.
  • Dredgon - August 13, 2010 2:55 a.m.

    Looks like Starkiller is heading into the Luke cave, perhaps finding out if he is a clone or not! I for one believe the latter, and Yoda must know everything!!!!!
  • Onepersonwithnoopinion - August 13, 2010 2:53 a.m.

    Cool story bro.
  • geneticallyalteredsupergiraffeejaculatinggrenades - August 13, 2010 2:50 a.m.

    awesomesauce.I can't wait for this game, I think I was one of the only people who really liked the first one
  • Crabhand - August 13, 2010 2:48 a.m.

    I really hope this game can destroy it's predecessor. The first game was great (in my books), but if this one can smooth out the rough edges, it should prove to be worth the money.
  • Jayler - August 13, 2010 2:47 a.m.

    Hell yeah, yoda is the man! or whatever the hell he is... Cant wait for this to come out
