N64 Classic Edition: 8 games we’d like to see

N64 Classic Edition: 8 games we’d like to see

Yesterday, we heard that Nintendo may be plotting an N64 Classic Edition. With the NES Classic Edition in the books and an SNES version on the way, this is hardly surprising. If the SNES Classic Edition sells well (and we all know it will), then Nintendo will almost certainly produce an N64 Classic Edition. With that in mind, here are eight games that I think should feature on such a retro console.

Radio Flyer’s Landspeeder lets kids feel like a Jedi

Radio Flyer’s Landspeeder lets kids feel like a Jedi

In a few months, the Star Wars craze will hit the world again with the premiere of the Last Jedi. But before that happens, you can train your own padawans in the old ways of the Force by introducing them to the original (and some would say the best) Star Wars episodes (definitely not I to III). And what better way to get them excited by putting them in the shoes of young Luke Skywalker as he traverses the desserts of Tatooine aboard their very own mini Landspeeder, courtesy of good ol’ Radio Flyer.

This is Donald Glover as Lando (and Chewie’s wife?!)

This is Donald Glover as Lando (and Chewie’s wife?!)

Today we've gotten a couple looks at what Donald Glover is going to look like in the upcoming Han Solo Star Wars film. While it should be relatively obvious that his appearance won't change drastically - Lando's just a man, after all - we do get to see some sweet costume images. Very, very small images that I feel border on cruelty - thanks Ron Howard! Now, to start making that super-duper-early cosplay jacket in yellow...

Among other things, the story will let us look at this fantasy world from the perspective of the Galactic Empire.

Here’s your first look at Disney’s new Star Wars land

With the Star Wars brand now part of Disney's portfolio, it's no surprise that Mickey Mouse and company are looking to utilize the franchise in every way possible.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 will be enhanced for the Xbox One X

Star Wars fans are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Star Wars Battlefront 2, the sequel to 2015's fun-but-disappointing Battlefront game. We learned more about the game in recent months, and it was just last month that we also got details on the 'Xbox One X' console. A natural question, then, is this: will Battlefront 2 be optimized for the newer console? The answer has surfaced on Microsoft's own website.

R2-D2 sells for $2.76 million at auction

Yes, you read that title right. But before you start getting upset that the iconic Star Wars droid should have fetched a much higher price, know that it wasn't the R2-D2. Sold by the Profiles in History auction house in California this week, this model was described as a "complete R2-D2 unit" that was assembled from various original parts. When you put that under consideration, it makes perfect sense why this R2-D2 would sell for a mere $2.76 million in pocket change.

Lucasfilm recently issued a brief statement revealing that the unnamed Han Solo movie slated for 2018 had lost its two directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The reason for the departure was cited as 'creative differences,' though reports have since claimed that the duo were fired over repeatedly clashing with others on the project including producer Kathleen Kennedy.

Lucasfilm has reported a disturbance in the force, saying it has lost untitled Han Solo movie directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller over unspecified 'creative differences.'
