Star Wars Jedi Showdowns is an upcoming Star Wars fighting game, where Star Wars characters fight in circular arenas and see who goes down first. The release date will be late 2016.
Similar to Tekken, Star Wars Jedi Showdowns has a circular fighting square where characters can run around the field and fight. Characters can use the force to pick up background items and throw them at things. If chosen, sometimes enemies will appear and will become stage hazards. Blocking is a big thing in this game, as lightsabers hurt, alot. When somebody swings the lightsaber it can be blocked by swinging back, some blocks will be deflected immediately while others will begin to have a 'balance' meter. If a block is succesfully done on an enemy, there is a chance it will fall backwards, leaving the enemy vulnerable temporarily.
Jedi with double-bladed lightsabers (such as Darth Maul) might be harder to take down, but are alot harder to control then one-lightsaber jedi. They seem to have somewhat of a different formula. The double bladed lightsabers are almost considered as two seperate lightsabers, as each one has a different control to attack. But both cant be used as once.
Four Lightsaber Wielders (such as Grievious) are one of the hardest characters, as one side of lightsabers are on one button, while the other are on a different button. Blocking is alot easier, but if thrown back it takes Grevious longer to recover. Grievious has one different thing, aswell. His arms can be cut off, but once three are cut off no more can be cut off.
Characters with double-bladed spinning lightsabers (such as The Inquisitor) will not always have the spinning lightsaber, though they can activate it. It makes dodging a bit easier and makes the lightsaber a bit stronger. Though if the spinning lightsaber is hit correctly, it will explode and the regular lightsaber they wield will regenerate.
Different Lightsaber colors can be purchased, or gotten through achievments
