Nintendo's popular Wii video game will release Star Wars: The Force Unleashed this spring. The Wii remote will become a light saber, allowing gamers to live out their Jedi fantasies. The game has a new storyline that promises revelations about the Star Wars galaxy. And players will be helping to rid the universe of Jedi, using all kinds of Force powers. The gamers won't get to be Darth Vader, though. They'll have to be content with playing the role of Darth Vader's apprentice.
