Sony Online Entertainment's upcoming Clone Wars Adventures has garnered a fair amount of interest among both the younger target audience and older fans as well. As with any upcoming game, the question of a launch date is always at the top of everyone's need-to-know list.

SOE answered that question today, giving us plenty of extra information in the process. Clone Wars Adventures will launch on September 15th, the same day as the premiere of the third season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, making for an exciting day for fans.

Launch is still a little over a month away, but there is already the promise of more to come. We've known for a while that the game will be free-to-play with microtransactions, but SOE has a special retail box planned for release on October 5th. The Clone Wars Adventures Galactic Passport will be sold in stores throughout North America, and will contain a 90-day membership, 500 Station Cash, the ability to unlock the Togruta playable character, a Yoda monitor topper, and more.

This announcement comes with a closer look at minigames, one of the game's main features. Check out the gallery below for new screenshots (including a peek at housing), and a brand new "Inside the Game" video after the jump.
