Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Announcement and Cross Platform WebDoc

So the big announcement this past weekend on Spike TV's Star Wars screenings was the unveiling of Darth Vader as the player character for the first level of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

As Vader, you'll be landing on Kashyyyk to search for your new apprentice, and you'll get to butcher a bunch of wookies along the way. I typed wookie.

LucasArts has also released a new Web Doc which deals with the non-Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game. The use of the Wii Remote looks really cool, and even though I'm not a fan of the console, the PlayStation 2 version is looking _very_ nice for such an old piece of hardware.

You can check the Web Doc out, as well as footage of playing as Vader, on the official site (click on Media Gallery, then Web Docs / Videos).
