    Star Wars: Rogue Squadron was a tremendously disappointing Star Wars/X-Men crossover. If you could somehow overlook that, however, you'd find a pretty popular series focused around the Star Wars' iconic starfighter battles.

    Information has come to light that developer Factor 5 was actually working on a Roque Squadron title for the Wii... sort of. It was basically a not-HD HD collection, bundling Rogue Leader and Rebel Strike with 60 FPS gameplay, multiple control schemes, and a lightsaber dueling minigame using the Wii Motion Plus.

    Sadly, the game was cancelled, so this footage is as much as we're likely ever going to get. Enjoy it while it lasts.

    Anyway, if you have any interest in the footage (and want to see it in a form that doesn't belong in a garbage can like the header pic), follow the link for the full trailer.

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    That looked awesome. :/

    But no, they had to make Lair instead of getting this out.

    So, we can blame Sony for making Factor 5 program that shitty Lair and for going under.

    I loved the Rogue Squadron games so much, but a Wii "not HD but slightly better" remake combined with shitty waggle controls sounds completely pointless to me, I can see why they didn't bother.

    Just make a new Rogue Squadron game for PC and the next gen consoles ffs, it has been WAY too long since the last game.

    I do miss Rogue Squadron. I'm not too concerned over the lack of a Wiimake, but rather that there is no Rogue Squadron IV.

    I hope this gets leaked in the future. It'll be cool to go back and document/play the stuff :)

    Yeah while it would have been kinda cool. And having the ability to use the gcn controller for control would have been great. Really, it would have been only ok...Although not having to pay for it because it's a wii game, that would have been great!

    It will leak one day.

    What a shame this never went public. Looks like they put a lot of work into it.

    i was just thinking about this game, and from what i hear its complete somewhere out there. Would be nice if someone dumped this, and if it is on the net it will be sooner or later.

    When was it supposed to release? What are the odds that it would get leaked now?

    But it was already 60fps on the Gamecube.
