iPhone Star Wars augmented reality game unveiled

Games behemoth THQ Wireless has showcased a new iPhone Star Wars game, offering would-be starpilots the chance to carry out raids on the Death Star in a galaxy far, far away or in their everyday surroundings.

Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner’s big USP is that it allows players to point the iPhone’s onboard camera at their surroundings and play out the game against that real-world backdrop.

Other than that it looks pretty similar to the likes of Trench Run – also from THQ – in the respect that it’s a shooter in the mould of the original Star Wars sit-in arcade number. But the twist this time out you’re in the Millennium Falcon rather than an X-Wing.

Anyway, you’ll be able to get your hands on from around mid-November when it’s due to land in the App Store. Pricing is as yet unconfirmed, but we expect it’ll be in line with the £1.79 tax for THQ’s earlier Star Wars efforts.
