A new Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 trailer hit the web and it reveals not only Yoda, but also Starkiller apparently facing his inner demons while on the planet Dagobah.
As fans know, Dagobah is the planet Yoda went to after deciding on voluntary exile after he failed to defeat Darth Sidious and perhaps save the Republic at the same time. Dagobah is first shown in the Star Wars films in The Empire Strikes Back when Luke Skywalker traveled there to meet Yoda. It is shown again in Return of the Jedi and in a deleted scene in Revenge of the Sith. Luke had to face his inner demons while he was on the planet in The Empire Strikes Back, and it appears Starkiller is going to have to do the same in The Force Unleashed 2.
Check out the trailer here:
While it is unclear from the trailer why Starkiller traveled to Dagobah, or if there will be a Starkiller/Yoda battle. Either way, the trailer is pretty cool and provides a good nostalgia nod to longtime fans. Some people might argue nods like this make the official Star Wars canon too confusing, but I appreciate all the little nods to the classic films I know and love so much. Perhaps I am the minority, as I tend to spend more time focusing on the things I like and less time looking for subtle inconsistencies between films and the games. I know I like the character Yoda and I know I always thought the planet Dagobah was cool. And now I learn that The Force Unleashed 2 is going to combine both of those things, heck yeah!
I actually wish more Star Wars games focused on Dagobah and what was really going on in those caves and the strong dark side of the force present on the planet.
What do my fellow Ranters think about this trailer and the inclusion of Yoda and Dagobah in The Force Unleashed 2? Are you guys starting to get as excited about this game as I am? I guess the hype machine is starting to work…
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 is currently scheduled to release on October 26, 2010, for the PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, Nintendo DS, and Apple iOS.
