Star Wars: Assault Team turn-based game launches on Android, iOS, and Windows (Phone) 8 this spring
Disney announced a new Star Wars game, called Star Wars: Assault Team. A post on the company's blog describes the title as a turn-based combat game designed for mobile devices. It features a strategic element, along with card battles. While lightsaber combat probably isn't that exciting when fought with “cards” that feature static images and character stats, the game, or part of it, is rendered in 3D. And you can pull Force-fueled punches on stormtroopers, which is a delight in every Star Wars game.
Fans of the interstellar franchise will be also pleased by the inclusion of classic Star Wars characters, and missions set throughout locations from the original trilogy.
Star Wars: Assault Team will be released globally "this spring". It will land on Android, iOS, and Windows 8 devices - including Windows Phone 8. Before its global rollout begins, the game will be available in “limited early access” in select markets. This is all there is to know about the title so far.

Hey now, maybe this will turn out to be the best Star Wars game ever made. Heck, maybe it will be better than any Star Wars product ever! Give it time...!

This will be like Transformers Legends or GI Joe. It will be free until you want special cards or powers, then you better be ready to pay...

More and more apps are being released on WP the same time or shortly after the other platforms. WP as the third choice is cemented.
