LucasArts has announced Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron for DS and PSP as an expanded take on Battlefront’s gameplay.
Expected for release sometime this fall, the game will allow players to wage war on multi-level battlefronts, on the ground and in space.
Gamers assume the identity of X2, a clone trooper created from the DNA of a Jedi Master who instead of doing his duty and assassinating the Jedi, changes sides and joins the Rebellion. Fighting can be done on foot, or via land vehicles and space crafts.
Personalization of armor, characters and weapons has been implemented, along with class-based gameplay.
The PSP version supports 16-player multiplayer with stat tracking, while the DS version allows four-player skirmishes across a number of modes, including Heroes and Villains.
Loads more information is posted in the press release below.

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.
