A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, there was the a suave hombre named Billy Dee Williams who brought a sense of class and style to the Star Wars universe. Well, a short time from now, in a game retailer near, near to your home, Williams’ character, Lando Calrissian, is going to be featured in LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, LucasArts announced today.
Lando Calrissian, who first appeared in The Empire Strikes Back as the man in charge of Cloud City, ended up being the smoothest man this side of Tatooine in both that second film and the penultimate Return of the Jedi. Now the smooth talker is going to lend his sharp aim and wits to LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, and he’s also available as an unlockable character on the game’s official website.
On the website, you ask? Yep, the LEGO Star Wars III site lets visitors play as their favorite LEGO Star Wars characters, interact with other players, solve puzzles together and learn more about the upcoming game and its new features. To unlock Lando, hit the Enter key on your keyboard to bring up the password prompt and enter CLOUDCITYGAMBLER, followed by Enter again.
