We knew that Star Wars 1313 would take gamers to the seedy underworld of Coruscant and present a darker and more ‘adult’ take on the galaxy far, far away, which led many to speculate that the game could in fact feature the notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett. Turns out they were right! New concept art for the game that has leaked online (courtesy of Kotaku) has shown that Fett was to be the focus of the game.
I don’t know about you, but this has me even more bummed out. For one, I always loved the PS2 Bounty Hunter game, which put you in the role of Jango Fett. It was a third-person shooter/adventure game and despite a silly story, it featured awesome gameplay and some seriously fun experiences. I’m not alone in this one, and many fans have been clamoring for a sequel of some sort to this game since it released. It sounds like 1313 could have been, at the least, a spiritual successor to Bounty Hunter.
This could have been amazing, but now it’s not likely to happen. While a representative from Lucasfilm has said that the game (and First Assault) could be licensed out to other developers, the chances of that happening right now are slim.
