Star Wars: Hunters, the free-to-play mobile game coming to Nintendo Switch and mobile devices, has released a new cinematic trailer that shows off a number of the game's playable characters, including a very unlikely duo.
Star Wars: Hunters has remained further off-radar than even the Dagobah system since its initial announcement as part of the February 2021 Nintendo Direct. With very few details shared at the Nintendo event aside from a short teaser trailer and the game's logo, fans' first real look at the title came during the release of its recent cinematic trailer, which can be seen below and shows off a number of characters in the game.
While the trailer predominantly depicts a close-fought encounter between the Sith warrior Rieve and her Mandalorian counterpart Aran Tal, it was the inclusion of another of the title's characters that really caught our eye. Stood one on top of another and dressed in a full-length trench coat, the real stars of the Star Wars: Hunters trailer are a pair of ungainly balanced Jawas known together as uTooni. Although the duo gets little screen time, the Outer Rim tag-team can be seen clumsily readying a grenade before the scene cuts away. With little else shown of the pair, fans will have to wait to see how the Tattooine scavengers adapt to arena combat.
Among other playable characters shown off in the trailer, fans received a more detailed look at Grozz, a Wookie warrior with a penchant for disarming droids; J-3D1, a suitably named droid programmed to believe that he has an affinity with the force; Sling Shot, an ugnaught controlling the husked out shell of a destroyer droid, and more.
In other Star Wars: Hunters news, a limited amount of gameplay footage was also shown off during last night's (September 14) Apple event as part of a showcase to display the capabilities of the tech company's new iPad Mini. While brief, footage from the game gave fans a glimpse at what they could expect from the title's combat and in-game HUD.
Star Wars: Hunters is set to release for mobile devices and Nintendo Switch sometime in 2022. To keep up with a range of the latest news from Star Wars: Hunters, make sure to keep checking back to our dedicated page for the game.
Correction: This article originally stated that uTooni were holding a switched-off lightsaber but, on closer inspection, it appears to be a grenade.
