Rather than Nintendo have exclusive rights to all forthcoming Star Wars: Episode One games, the firm merely has limited period exclusivity on just one. But what is that one game to be all about? With every Star Wars nerd in the universe (ourselves included) picking over every morsel of rumour that lands on the Internet, it's been possible to establish certain facts. ——————————————————————————————————1/4—— Meet Thy Worm 196 Nnnnng! 480 BEHOLD THIS STUFF: p672 Hot topic Tips Club 140 Sci Fi

Therefore it's a safe bet that at least one LucasArts title will be called Star Wars: Podracers or somesuch. Eat this, spoiler-haters: Imagine Roman chariots with the horses replaced by massive turbine engines, and you'll have some idea how the 18 pods featured in The Phantom Menace will look. Organised by a young Jabba The Hutt, the podracers are slaves, forced to take part to compete for their freedom. ——————————————————————————————————2/4—— Worm Pie 196 Octopus Soup 140 THE DYNAMIC CRONE p671 Hot topic Tips Club 140 Sci Fi

In the movie, the eight-9ear-old Anakin Skywalker, later to evolve into leather-clad uber-Jedi D.Vader, uses his emerging Force abilities to win the race, and thus his freedom. Those who have seen it describe the ten- minute sequence through canyons and over dunes, as one of the most spectacular movie moments ever. And perfect for a videogame. ——————————————————————————————————3/4—— Meet Thy Worm 196 Nnnnng! 480 BEHOLD THIS STUFF: p672 Hot topic Tips Club 140 Sci Fi
