ESRB listing reveals new portable Star Wars Battlefront games

Between all the action figures, iPhone apps, lighters, Pez dispensers, and other such memorabilia, getting your Star Wars fix on the go has never really been too difficult. But hey, it’s an ESRB listing for more Star Wars Battlefront. Complaining would mean having our nerd cards revoked forever.

The listing details two new portable entries in the series, one on DS and one on PSP. Both apparently feature all the usual suspects: third-person shooting, space battles, and millions of voices crying out in terror pain. However, the listing doesn’t say whether or not the voices are ever silenced. You be the judge.

The PSP version will also pull you out of the fray with a strategy-based mode. Other than that, though, the two teensy intergalactic tussles seem more or less the same.

Check out both game descriptions after the break.

Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron
Platform: PSP
Rating: Teen
Content descriptors: Fantasy Violence
Rating summary: “This is an action game in which players experience different battles from the Star Wars universe. Presented in a third-person perspective, the game allows players to engage in space, land, and air battles or build troops and upgrade armies in a strategy-based mode. Players can use laser guns (i.e., blasters), explosives, and lightsabers to destroy enemy robots (i.e., droids) and humans who often cry out in pain when attacked. During one dramatic cutscene sequence, an unarmed man is sliced by a lightsaber, while another character is shot in the back with a blaster.”

Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron
Platform: Nintendo DS
Rating: Everyone 10+
Content descriptors: Fantasy Violence
Rating summary: ” Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron is an action adventure game in which players experience different battles from the Star Wars universe. From a third-person perspective, players engage in space battles, ‘speeder bike’ chases, and top-down battling. The ground battle includes constant laserfire combined with hand-to-hand combat using ‘lightsabers.’ A depleting health bar and various “yelps” indicate damage inflicted upon certain characters.”
