LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga’s Next Announcement Could Have the Perfect Stage

Star Wars fans have been given a steady stream of content over the past few years thanks to various films, television shows, and other pieces of media. There is one piece of Star Wars content, however, that has been consistently elusive, and that is LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. The next installment in the long-running LEGO franchise has been on the radar of Star Wars fans for a few years now, but a series of delays has kept it out of the hands of hopeful gamers on multiple occasions.

Fortunately, it seems things are starting to look up for the highly anticipated release of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Since August of last year, fans have known that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is supposed to come out in the spring of 2022. The game has been given release windows that are subject to change like this in the past, but recent rumblings on The Skywalker Saga's release have been cause for some optimism. There's a prevailing sense that the game might actually come out when developer TT Games says it will, so now it's just a matter of spreading the word.

If there's any stage for gaming announcements that gets a lot of attention at the beginning of a new year, it's Nintendo's famed Direct events. RELATED: LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga's Melee Attacks Can Make Each Jedi and Sith Unique

Nintendo's First Direct Of 2022 Could Help The Skywalker Saga A Lot

It's no secret at this point that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has had some development troubles. Between the ongoing pandemic and TT Games' decision to completely overhaul the LEGO formula for this entry, The Skywalker Saga has become one of the biggest projects in the developer's history.

This has resulted in numerous delays and a minimal amount of marketing for the game, but if The Skywalker Saga makes an appearance at the first Nintendo Direct of 2022, it could improve the game's image across the board. The first Direct of each year usually gets a lot of eyes on it, as it will often lay out Nintendo's plans for the near and distant future.

2022's first Nintendo Direct is no exception, as many fans are anticipating announcements on Breath of the Wild 2 and other projects. If LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga could find its way into the event, it could benefit the game much more than any other announcement thanks to the spectacle of a Nintendo Direct.

Gamers that might not have watched a new trailer from just seeing it online will now see it as part of Nintendo's show, giving the game an extensive amount of exposure, and seeing The Skywalker Saga during such a major event could reassure wary fans that the game is still coming.

What The Skywalker Saga Would Have To Show At Nintendo's First 2022 Direct

In order to have a truly memorable showing at Nintendo's first Direct of 2022, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga would have to make the announcement that fans have been waiting months for. If the game really is going to come out in the spring of this year, and the first Direct of 2022 hypothetically takes place within the next few weeks, The Skywalker Saga would have to give fans some kind of solid release date. Spring may seem far away, but in terms of video game marketing, there isn't a whole lot of time left for TT Games to make a final decision and start dispersing promotional material to support a strong release.

It should be said that there's no official word on when Nintendo's first Direct of 2022 is going to take place, or if LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will make any kind of appearance, but it's hard to deny just how good of an opportunity it would be. The LEGO franchise has become a staple of the video game industry over the last two decades, and the sheer scale of The Skywalker Saga looks to be a culmination of that long history. Fans have maintained a Jedi-like patience for The Skywalker Saga for years now, and capitalizing on the first Nintendo Direct of 2022 could be just the pay-off many have been waiting for.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is set to release in spring 2022 for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
