Star Wars 1313, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 titles leaked ahead of E3 announcements


A landing page on GameTrailers TV [since replaced] for the site's upcoming E3 coverage has leaked at least two big titles ahead of the show itself. According to the page (which has been replaced, screenshot above), "E3 begins on GTTV with the Star Wars 1313 announcement and new trailers from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Tomb Raider, Guardians of Middle-Earth, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, and Dishonored."

Most of those we already knew would be getting some coverage at the show next week, but two of those titles are new to our ears: Star Wars 1313, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.

Star Wars 1313 is a trademark that's been bouncing around at LucasFilm for a while, but there's been no official word on just what it might be yet. In the Expanded Universe, Boba Fett once used the alias "CT-1313," so the best guess is that it's a new franchise based around Fett's story in some way. has also been registered by LucasArts, and currently redirects to the main Star Wars site.

And Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is clearly a sequel to the 2010 title that's hardly a big surprise to finally hear about. But it's not any less exciting to see these two big names revealed by GTTV's mistake. We'll obviously find out more about both of these when the official announcements are made.

Update: Star Wars 1313 now has a Facebook page, also apparently leaked before an "announcement." There's a shot and a description on there, both of which we've reprinted after the break. 1313 refers to "Level 1313," a criminal underground on Coruscant (if indeed this page is real), but there is mention of a certain "bounty hunter," so Boba's not out yet.

Update: LucasArts' official site has the shot, logo, and a link to the Facebook page. It's official, this is the new Star Wars game.

"Named for Level 1313, a ruthless criminal underground deep below the surface of the planet of Coruscant, the game puts players in control of a deadly bounty hunter as he uses an arsenal of exotic weaponry to hunt down his marks and uncover the truth surrounding a criminal conspiracy. Star Wars 1313 emphasizes epic set pieces and fast-paced combat with a hero who uses human skills and gadgets, rather than supernatural Force powers, to make his way through this dangerous world."
