LucasArts Exec offers New Hope of Super Star Wars on 360

LucasArts executive producer Haden Blackman wanted to talk about taking Star Wars in new directions on video games, but an aside comment about Super Star Wars on the Xbox 360 naturally keeps the discussion fixated on the past.

"We're also interested - and this is something that comes from George [Lucas] - in taking Star Wars in new directions, not just always going back and rehashing what has been done before," Blackman told CVG in an interview, "But at the same time I would love to see a Super Star Wars on the Xbox 360, so I think anything is possible."

Super Star Wars, along with SNES brethren Super Empire Strikes Back and Super Return of the Jedi, all released for the Virtual Console on Wii last year. Whether it's a hint or a new hope, this comment coming from someone in his position is plenty enough to stoke interest in the classic coming to Xbox Live Arcade.
