Intec has announced that it has reached a deal with Lucasfilm for the licensing rights to create Star Wars-branded accessories.
"Since the beginning of Star Wars, Lucasfilm has developed solid licensing partnerships to ensure the brand remains synonymous with a high-quality, adventurous galactic experience," said Howard Roffman, president of Lucas Licensing. "Intec's product line will add onto this experience, and we look forward to increasing our fans' gaming experience through their innovative video game accessories."
The first Star Wars-themed controllers under the deal will be launched by this holiday season—for both Xbox and PlayStation 2. Intec is also going to be collaborating with LucasArts to design products to coincide with the launch of the Star Wars: Episode III game, which is slated for release on May 5, 2005, as well as other titles.
