I sense a new trend emerging at geek gatherings everywhere: iPhone lightsaber duels. It’ll probably scare all the girls (far, far) away, but you’ll be able to show your iPhone-wielding friends the true power of the dark side.

The upcoming Lightsaber Duel game is due to be released early next month, and it will feature officially-licensed lightsaber sounds and Bluetooth connectivity, meaning you’ll actually be able to duel (instead of just waving the phone around making whizzing sounds).

The game is actually a follow-up to Lightsaber Unleashed, created by the same company, THQ Wireless. The new game will feature 11 new Star Wars characters, and if that’s not enough, players will be able to create multiple custom characters, too.
