The Star Wars universe will soon be joining the tower defense game craze. Developer DeNA is partnering with Disney Interactive and Lucasflim to brings Star Wars: Galactic Defense to the App Store later this year.
The freemium game will include characters from both the classic films and the less-than-stellar prequels. DeNA explains more about the game:
This all-new tower defense game blends iconic characters, adrenaline-fueled battles, and strategic gameplay in an ever-evolving mobile experience. Players choose their side – light or dark – as they explore and battle across iconic Star Wars locations, gain powerful abilities to change the tide of battle, and connect online with their friends in real-time.

We’ll definitely let you know if we hear anything more about Star Wars: Galactic Defense. If you need a Star Wars fix now, I highly recommend the insanely fun Star Wars: Commander. The free combat strategy game is universal for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini.
