Star Wars Fighting Game Prototype Footage

This trailer offers a look at a prototype of a Star Wars fighting game that was proposed by Studio Gigante, a developer composed of former Mortal Kombat developers that created another fighting game called Tao Feng: Fist of the Lotus. They were apparently pitching this as well as a Kill Bill game before they closed up shop in 2005. Thanks Polygon.

Dead game so none of this matters but.....

1) Why is Darth Maul not using a double "bladed" saber? I would think the tech demo or *proof of concept* would be exactly when you want to show that.

2) A dedicated fighting game like this would suck because one does not simply get hit multiple times by a lightsaber. It tends to be a one cut:fight over type of deal. I am not trying to play the "realism" card in a sci-fi action fighting game...just saying...lightsabers become dramatically less badass when someone can take repeated blows to the head from one and still have a head. This is why that "Clone Wars: Lightsaber Duels" game is $4.99 at Gamestop, I would imagine.

3) I will say this though....watching Anakin get his ass kicked was slightly rewarding.

This particular game looks rather shoddy, but despite my criticisms we all know a well made one with plenty of *shiny*, maybe some voice acting done by the actual actors, and the "Star Wars" brand would sell like crazy.
