Star Wars: First Assault has been unearthed by way of trademark and web domain registrations by Lucas Arts. The filings primarily relate to “interactive entertainment software” for computers and mobile phones and also cover a wide range of merchandise rights.
The filings, spotted by Fusible, back up a list of Star Wars: First Assult domain name registrations filed by LucasFilm at the end of last week.
Remember this mirrors the discovery of mature action-adventure Star Wars 1313; whose name was similarly spotted as a trademark registration before its E3 announcement.
So what could it be? Since the early 90s, gamers have been clamoring for sequels to games like Rebel Assault, X-Wing Alliance, and Battlefront. Maybe their wish is about to come true, and we are about to get a sequel for one of these games.
Lucas Arts has yet to announce anything official.
