This morning LucasArts sent a fact sheet out on the Holonet for Kinect Star Wars, and it confirmed two player local co-op support for at least one of its multiple modes. According to our on-the-scene Galactic News reporter, Nick Sunrunner, the gameplay looks like it has something to be desired.
If you've ever done any behind-the-scenes research on the wildly popular and legendary original Star Wars trilogy, you might know that George Lucas borrowed from many franchises for Star Wars. Pandemic did the same for Star Wars Battlefront, and the result was a die-hard fan named Jim.
