Episode I: Obi-Wan This Fall

LucasArts has announced that its new first/third-person hybrid shooter, Episode I: Obi-Wan, will be available this fall! Here's a snip from the press release:
Obi-Wan captures all the complexity of lightsaber battle through an innovative and intuitive glyph combat system, which relies on intuitive gesture-based movements to allow players to control the Force in ways they've never imagined. As players traverse the highly detailed interactive environments, Obi-Wan moves with incredible Jedi agility using realistically-animated flips, rolls and jumps.
One challenge that very few games have met adequately is using a melee weapon like a lightsaber in a first-person shooter. Here's to hoping Obi-Wan does it right.

LucasArts usually doesn't announce dates for a game's release until it is just about done, so it would seem very likely that this game will actually be on time. Thanks JediKnight.net.
