Star Wars™: Jedi Challenges, A New Smartphone-Powered Augmented Reality Experience Launching this Holiday

Through visible light-tracking technology, the headset’s sensors work together to lock onto the position of the Lightsaber controller, allowing players to see a beam form above the “hilt,” which they can use to block and interact with the universe in-game. Haptic feedback is activated as players strike or block their opponents, while an inertial measurement unit sends rotational information from the controller to the smartphone to assist the beam in remaining stable mid-swing.

Availability and pricing

Pricing and availability for Star Wars: Jedi Challenges will vary from country to country and the product will be available beginning in November in certain markets.

In the US, Star Wars: Jedi Challenges is $199.99 and will be sold on  BestBuy.com and at Best Buy stores nationwide starting in November.
