Star Wars: Jedi Challenges will add new lightsaber battles and more from ‘The Last Jedi’
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” just hit theaters this week and to celebrate, Lenovo is preparing an update to its Jedi Challenges AR experience which will add content from the latest film. Lenovo’s Jedi Challenges experience already pulls content from the other 7 episodes in the Star Wars movie franchise, so it only makes sense that the company would release an update to pull in the latest from the likes of Episode 8, “The Last Jedi.”
This includes a new Lightsaber duel with Praetorian Guards, new combat modes, new enemies and levels for assault mode, and, of course, Porgs.
All of that new content will be available in January through an update to the Jedi Challenges app on Android and iOS.
