THQ just dropped a sweet bomb on us with a teaser announcement of a brand new Star Wars Battlefront game for the mobile platform.

Fans of the Battlefront series should be particularly excited since the series was essentially defunct once developer Pandemic was bought up by EA - removing its option to license property from LucasFilm. Fortunately Mikoishi is still here to keep the franchise alive for pocket gamers.

We saw a Star Wars Battlefront Mobile game way back in 2005, and although we don’t have many details on apparent sequel Star Wars Battlefront: Mobile Squadrons, the title suggests something of a crossbreed between the Battlefront FPS action and possibly the strategic fighting/multiplayer of the recent Clone Wars game, also from THQ Wireless.

The teaser picture we’ve seen shows Count Dooku, the Emperor and Yoda all brandishing their Lightsabers, with Princess Leia alongside - suggesting a journey through all episodes, one to six, with a degree of online action built into the game.

We’ll have to wait for some firmer details, but we definitely feel a disturbance in the Force. Keep a close eye out for more Star Wars Battlefront: Mobile Squadrons news as we get it.
