Lightsaber battles

Face off against Darth Vader, his grandson Kylo Ren, and other Star Wars Dark Siders, in this epic lightsaber duel mode.

Strategy Mode

Take charge of the Rebel Alliance, as you battle against Imperial forces, in a strategy game sequence that will give you the opportunity to lead the good guys to victory.


Holochess, known in the Star Wars universe as Dejarik, is another game-mode for this cell phone generated experience. With a 3-D image and style, more of your strategy will be tested, when you match-up with a live opponent or programmed one. If you end up facing off against a Wookiee, we suggest you let them win.

Here are what accessories and features come with the set, so there are no surprises upon purchase:

  • 2 x AA Alkaline Batteries
  • 5V/1A Wall-Charger
  • Augmented reality headset
  • Lightning to micro-USB cable
  • Lightsaber controller, tracking beacon
  • Micro USB to Micro USB cable
