LucasArts and TT Games today announced the development of LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars. The next chapter in the LEGO Star Wars series will ship on the Wii, Nintendo DS, PlayStation 3, PSP, and Xbox 360 in the Autumn of 2010.

LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars will include all the characters from both seasons of the animated television series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, as well as some fan-favorite characters from the theatrical Star Wars Saga. The game will feature new battle modes and an upgraded level builder, allowing the creation of customized bases and in-game battlefields. Play either as a Jedi or Separatist with all-new character abilities, such as Squad command, Lightsaber slicing, Lightsaber jumps, long distance Jedi attacks and Grapple Tie-Ups, all within a new, easy-to-navigate hub.

Middle East Passes on Dante’s Inferno

To no one's surprise, EA has announced that it will not be releasing its upcoming game, Dante's Inferno, in the Middle East. In a recent statement, the company said: "Electronic Arts has decided not to release Dante's Inferno in the Middle East after an evaluation process which is based on consumer tastes, preferences, platform mix and other factors."

It would very likely have been banned in many areas within the region. It wouldn't necessarily be banned because of its violent nature, but because of its strong religious overtones, something that doesn't bode well in the region. Games that have been banned recently in the Middle East include Darksiders, Bayonetta, and God of War III. The last of those three was banned simply because it has the word "God" in its title.

Still, those who really want to play Dante's Inferno shouldn't have trouble getting their hands on the game, as with any other banned title.

In October, Kojima Productions hinted that Peace Walker had a huge surprise coming, a surprise that would push people to buy a PSP. Revealed today on the company's blog, it appears that surprise is still under wraps. Kojima Productions PR manager Jiro Oishi mentioned it, saying, "However, in truth, there's another ultimate charm outside of co-op play hidden in PW."

So, what do you reckon it could be?

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is releasing April 29 in Japan and May 25 in the US.

A new report from Game Developer Research presented an interesting trend in the gaming industry. The survey revealed that the mobile side of the industry increased 25% last year in terms of development compared to the prior year's increase of 12%. More than doubling the amount of development taking place on the DS and PSP, roughly 75% of mobile developers are supporting the iPhone and iPod Touch.

At the same time, development for the Wii has dropped off a staggering 30% as studios are tending to embrace established IP's on the Xbox 360 and PS3.

"Like any other medium of entertainment, video game development is subject to change with the ebb and flow of the economy and any hot new trends, and this year’s survey continues to reflect this evolution," said Simon Carless, global brand director of Think Services Game Group. "The full, detailed survey document, with its plethora of raw data and wealth of insight, is an important resource for any industry-watchers looking to navigate the changing seas of the games industry."

The game will be releasing this July. In addition to that information, is confirmation that an iPhone version of the game will be coming also.

Digg Gets Clever Dante’s Inferno Advertisement

Initially thought to be a possible hack, those who check Digg's source code today will notice a rather hellish figure embedded in some ASCII art. However, upon closer examination, it appears to be a marketing campaign by EA, considering towards the bottom, the URL http://hellisnigh.com is listed.

Digg has confirmed that it's a marketing stunt by EA.

"Since Digg’s early days, ASCII art has been ingrained in our site’s culture," said Chas Edwards, Digg Publisher and Chief Revenue Officer. "We're thrilled with the opportunity presented by our partnership with Electronic Arts and the Dante's Inferno team — incorporating ASCII art into advertising on Digg, while providing the 40 million users in the Digg Community first access to the promotion code."

Pretty clever, eh?
