Disney Interactive Announces Star Wars: Assault Team, A Card-Based Game for Android

Ever since Disney acquired Lucasfilm two years ago for $4.05 billion, the company has bombarded consumers with Star Wars games, apps, and television tie-ins. And they’re just getting started. Disney Interactive, in partnership with LucasArts, announced the launch in unnamed markets of Star Wars: Assault Team, a new turn-based strategy game for Android, iOS, and Windows 8 devices.

The fighting is card-based, similar to Scrolls or Hearthstone. You collect classic characters as you progress through “graphically enhanced” planets and locations from the original film trilogy, and presumably shell out an obscene amount of money for additional cards.

Very few details about Star Wars: Assault Team are available at the moment, but the title will almost assuredly be free-to-play when it launches globally this spring.

    If it’s anything like Hearthstone, I’ll give it a shot.

      I doubt it will nearly as good, but who knows.

      the guy grew up on a moisture farm on a desert planet… probably the only way to pass time, can’t blame the dude.

        Moisture farm is probably the best place to keep from getting cotton moputh from smoking the herb : P

        I would love to see some Jengo or Boba Fett games using Google Glass. Since technically that is what their visor does on the side of their helmet, it’s basically a suped up Google Glass. George Lucas was way ahead of his time, even so today. An actual tech piece from stars wars is almost real, too bad it wasn’t the light saber.

    Is there a lens flare edition?
