With Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (finally) fast approaching, it's perhaps not too surprising that a whole lot of attention has been heading in the direction of the video games that'll be accompanying it.

This November will see the release of Star Wars: Battlefront, for instance, which currently looks so pants-wettingly good that it might just manage to both literally and figuratively blow our minds.

No matter how good it is, though, there'll still surely be an appetite for more. After all, we're not known as a society for our patience and lack of an insatiable desire for new and shiny things.

It's good news, then, that there's another Star Wars game on the (somewhat more distant) horizon - one that already sounds as though it could be something seriously special. Y'see:

One of the Creators of the Uncharted series is Making a Star Wars Game

Han is already so down.

Specifically, Amy Hennig, who left Naughty Dog (the makers of Uncharted) last year to join Visceral Games, a division of EA - and who is now taking the lead on a mysterious new, Uncharted-style Star Wars game.

The news was revealed Nolan North, the voice of Uncharted's Nathan Drake, and as he also pointed out, it's very much good news:

"If you’re a big fan of Amy Hennig and what her style is, the big thing about her is that she’s gone to EA and is going to reboot a brand new Star Wars franchise, in the style of Uncharted."
"And I happen to know a lot about it, and it’s going to be awesome."

After all, with the likes of Hennig - the brains behind the critically acclaimed Uncharted series - working on the project, there's a decent chance that we could be set to see something really special.

Especially since, according to North, it'll be "along the same lines" of the mysterious (and very much cancelled) Star Wars 1313 - one of the most actively mourned games that we never actually got to see.

Here's hoping, then...

What do you reckon, though?
