With fans still screaming from excitement at the Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi trailer released on YouTube today (1oth October 2017), Disney, along with Lenovo, have also unveiled Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, an augmented reality headset and app combo that will provide fans with an immersive experience like never before. The set-up features the smartphone-powered Lenovo Mirage AR headset that will also come with a Tracking Beacon, Lightsaber controller (modelled after Anakin’s, Luke’s, and Rey’s), and will be compatible with both the iPhone and Android devices.
Jedi Challenges will feature several aspects of immersive, progressive gameplay that will take them across several levels. Fans will be able to duel iconic dark side villains like Kylo Ren and Darth Vader in Lightsaber Battles, lead troops into the assault against Separatist, Empire or First Order foes, and even play Holochess – the board game in the memorable scene on board the Millennium Falcon in the earliest episode of Star Wars, A New Hope.
Star Wars: Jedi Challenges will be available from 4th November at a SRP of S$379 at authorized dealers, Addon, Challenger, Courts, Harvey Norman, Newstead, PLAYe, TOG (Toy or Game), and Toys”R”Us.
