A Darth Maul Starwars Game Was In The Works For Nintendo Platforms

Game Informer has revealed that a Darth Maul-focussed game from Lucasarts was originally meant to come to the Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and the Wii. Sadly the intriguing project was cancelled back in 2011 and the game never saw the light of day. Here are some of the details.

Being considered for Wii, 3DS, or Wii U

Main character was Darth Maul

Red Fly began handling prototype work in 2010 under the code name “Damage”

Project became a multiplatform release and shifted development to the Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC

This was “due largely to Nintendo not meeting financial demands to make it a first-party project”

Game would explore the origin story of Maul’s transformation into a Sith Lord

The game would center on stealth and action

George Lucas also stepped in at one point and changed the project’s direction

Changed things to make Darth Maul and Darth Talon face off against Darth Krayt and his Sith army

LucasArts also considered the possibility of purchasing Red Fly

In June 2011, LucasArts ceased its communications for unspecified reasons

They eventually sent out a letter stating that the game had been terminated

Red Fly Studios did manage to continue on despite Darth Maul’s cancellation

This cancellation lead to Red Fly having to lay off about 70 percent of its staffers

Damn it EA…damn it Disney….and damn it Nintendo. Why didn’t you finish it. Its Disney’s fault for giving Starwars to EA, its Nintendo’s fault for not paying a bit to fund the game and make it a Wii U exclusive, and its EA’s fault for cancelling it cause its fucking EA…
