Star Wars animated movie tie-in hits Wii, DS

Not content with the cross-media juggernaut that is The Force Unleashed, LucasArts is tapping up this year's other Star Wars event for a videogame tie-in, bringing a game based on the animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars to Wii and DS.

The game will presumably follow the movie plot of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi as they fight in the Clone Wars that take place between Episodes II and III.

LucasArts has yet to confirm the game or release any details, but IGN says it features as an advertisement in the LEGO Indiana Jones instruction booklet.

We're trying to get a confirmation from LucasArts, but we imagine it'll reveal more details available at E3. Like whether the motion controls on Wii will make this the lightsaber game we've been looking for.
