After The Book of Boba Fett, and with Obi-Wan Kenobi just around the corner, Star Wars has been in the public eye even more than usual. On top of those shows, a highly anticipated game that will take players to a galaxy far, far away, and push all the nostalgia buttons, is right around the corner: LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
Yes, those games have already been around for over a decade. This time, however, it’s a complete collection of levels and content which cover all nine episodes of the famous series, made from the ground up.
It’s a lot of content, and gamers across the world are excited to finally get their hands on it. The project has seen countless delays, almost to a comical degree, but the fated release date has almost arrived.
Ahead of its April 5 arrival, the official social media accounts for the game have continued to tease what’s in store, such as the bright city of Coruscant.
LEGO Star Wars Goes to Coruscant
The official Twitter account for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has offered a new look at Coruscant in the upcoming game.
The post teased the location’s “political intrigue, bright lights, shiny tech, and Jedi temples” and invited gamers to “visit Coruscant today!”
New images were also included, showing off the underground feel of the city in all of its vibrant glory.
The city is famous for being the headquarters of the Jedi Order, and is where the Senate holds its political affairs. The location has only showed up on screen for the prequel trilogy, so it's likely only the levels for Episodes I through III will touch upon it.
On the other hand, it's possible, given its iconic status, that Coruscant will also serve as a main HUB for the player.
It’s clear the developers, TT Games, have put a lot of effort into being true to the world of Star Wars while also including their signature charm.
The city can be seen in motion thanks to the ten-second clip included with the post, which can be seen below:

The Skywalker Saga is Almost Here
The LEGO franchise has always held a special place in the hearts of many gamers. It’s provided plenty of couch co-op gaming sessions with friends and family and has always given an accessible but still engaging experience.
With the craft and attention to detail that has clearly gone into Coruscant, it’s clear TT Games hasn’t been phoning it in. With how good the famous location looks, the anticipation to see further iconic set-pieces is likely intensified for many.
Seeing how the title will span nine entire movies, the amount of stuff there will be to do—and see—is staggering. Even then, it’s hard not to wish that shows like The Mandalorian or The Book of Boba Fett could make it in. Maybe for the next collection?
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will release on April 5.
