Nerdist.com has posted an exclusive article announcing Hasbro’s new Loopin’ Chewie game.

The 2-4 player game is the first item from the Hasbro Star Wars line to be released this year. It gives the popular Loopin’ Louie concept a makeover from the galaxy far, far away. Chewbacca fits into a mini Millennium Falcon that swings around the playing area to take out stormtroopers. Players can help Chewie navigate by using controls to swing him into or away from the racks with stormtroopers. With all the spinning and smooth moves, the Millennium Falcon is the perfect choice of ships for the game. Just remember: Let the Wookiee win! It’s for the best.

Head on over for the full details.
