Capturing all of the fast-paced platforming action of the arcade and NES classic, the minigame puts players in control of Chewbacca as he fights off Stormtroopers across four levels inspired by the original game, ranging from the forests of Endor and the treacherous halls of an Imperial facility to help the cause of the Rebel Alliance. After completing the tutorial for STAR WARS: FORCE COLLECTION, players will be able to access the Contra minigame and will be rewarded with a special trophy for playing.
In addition, the update introduces iconic Droids™ C-3PO and R2-D2 Cards to STAR WARS: FORCE COLLECTION, adding to the more than 300 heroes, villains, and vehicles available for players to construct a winning deck. Players will need all of the help they can get to take on Super Star Destroyer in a new Boss Event, also introduced in the update.
