Here’s a list of the features for creating the penultimate Star Wars fighting game.


  • Stunning, next-gen graphics give players a level of realism unseen before, all complemented by the latest in stereo surround-sound technology.
  • Stages featuring massive, multi-tiered stages with interactive objects that span famous locations as seen in the Star Wars films and television programs.
  • Cinematic-style matches – Featuring an innovative camera system that follows the action in a cinematic-style that captures the most intense moments of your fights in real-time. 
  • Canon and Infinities mode- Players are given a choice of either playing Canon mode that lets them experience some of the films greatest duels from all across the Skywalker saga. Or, the new Infinities mode allows players to play an open-ended, anything-goes experience that has exciting alternate storylines where heroes die or villains can be redeemed, all depending on player’s choices and who wins/loses.
  • Other fan-pleasing modes include Arcade, Bonus Game, Multi-player/Online, Survival, Training, and Versus (Characters from different eras can mixed and matched).
  • An impressive (even by Darth Vader’s standards) character roster that spans the Skywalker saga, including fan-favorites from the Clone Wars, Rebels, Disney +’s The Mandalorian, and even a few from Marvel’s Star Wars comics.
  • Points-into-credits conversion system- this system allows players to take their accumulated points/credits and use them to exchange for alternate costumes, weapon upgrades, special alternate versions of characters (Pops!, Disney-style, etc.), and even extra special moves. All of these can be acquired at Dok Ondor’s Den of Antiquities.
  • Interactive, massive, multi-tiered stages that allow players to use their environment to their advantage, just like in some of Star Wars most famous duels.
  • The Force Unleashed. The Ultimate Finisher, each character comes equipped with their most brutal attack for dealing with their opponent. Not as gruesome as Mortal Kombat these ultimate displays of power are played out cinematic-style in real-time.
  • Star Wars mini-games– Not just a fighting game, these self-contained bonus games give players other options as well.  They include the Street Fighter-style bonus stage where you destroy a vehicle or, in this case, an AT-AT/AT-ST, and even a Battlefront style game where you fight against droid armies or rebels (think Vader’s infamous scene from Rogue One).
