The Force Unleashed II's Wii Version Adds More Jedi Powers

From Kotaku

As with the original, the sequel to Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will be getting different versions of the game for the DS and Wii.

When the original game came out I was deeply disappointed in how those DS and Wii versions played. This time around it sounds like the Wii version, by developers Red Fly, is getting a significant overhaul.

I didn't have a chance to play the Wii version of the game, but in theory the changes sound like they should be moving the game in the right direction.

"The [creators of] Wii version took the same story and design philosophy, but built their own game," said LucasArts assistant producer Cameron Suey. "There is unique content throughout the levels.

"It is more of a companion game."

The Wii version will have its own story and even some unique Force Powers, like Force Sight which will allow you to see invisible enemies and enemies through walls.

The multiplayer aspect of the game also sounds like it is getting a significant overhaul. Multiplayer in the Wii version of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed has you fighting a single opponent in a 3D fighter.

This time around multiplayer will support up to four players on a single screen and the game will play like a 2D brawler, Suey said.

Here's hoping that the game lives up the PS3 and Xbox 360 version of the title.

This doesn't seem to be unfair to xbox360/ps3 owners, but still...why no multiplayer? You can have a solid singleplayer experience and have decent muliplayer at the same time. To bad that isnt happening.
