â€œThis effort is going to make it possible to introduce a whole new generation of gamers to LucasArts’ classic games…
It also gives more people a chance to play our games by making them available long after they’ve disappeared from store shelves. We hope our fans are as excited as we are about our plans and we can’t wait to share what’s coming next. This is just the beginning.
