Star Wars: The Clone Wars Has Leaked Hints of PS2 Emulation for PS5

A PlayStation Store listing for 2002’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars seems to suggest that more PlayStation 2 emulated games will be coming to PlayStation 5 (and PS4) after the conspicuous run-out of classics.

Gematsu has become aware of the store listing, which lists the release date as June 11th. This could mean that Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be joining the PlayStation Plus lineup this month. In any case, it would be the first PlayStation 2 emulated game on PS4 since 2019 and on PS5 overall since that console launched in late 2020.

The top tier of the PlayStation Plus subscription service, PlayStation Plus Premium, has included original PlayStation games and PlayStation Portable titles since that service launched in 2022. However, PS2 and PS3 games are noticeably missing.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars was a LucasArts game developed by Pandemic Studios in 2002 and 2003 for the PS2, GameCube and Xbox. It’s a combination of third-person action and vehicular combat, set in the Star Wars prequel world at the time of 2002’s Attack of the Clones.

In May and June, platform holders and major video game publishers host large showcases. So perhaps we’ll soon find out more about Sony Interactive Entertainment’s plans for PlayStation 2 emulation.

Here is the game’s full product list (now removed):

Experience STAR WARS The Clone Wars, originally released on the PlayStation®2 console, enhanced with up-rendering, rewind, quick save and custom video filters.

You’ll be thrown into the heat of battle in the galaxy’s most unforgettable conflict. As Anakin Skywalker, Mace Windu and Obi-Wan Kenobi, lead the Army of the Republic in the greatest battles of the epic Clone Wars. Your instructions: Stop the Separatists from reassembling an ancient Sith weapon of mass destruction!

• Pick up where Episode II ends. Play the biggest battles of the epic Clone Wars.

• Sixteen single-player missions across six expansive worlds from the Star Wars universe.

• Pilot five unique vehicles (Republic Gunship, Speeder Bike, Main Battle Tank, Assault Walker and even a Maru) against over 30 different combat units.

• Missions range from intense close-quarters combat to massive large-scale battles.

• Four completely different multiplayer modes: Team-Based Strategy, Deathmatch, King of the Hill and Co-op Endurance.

This title has been converted from the PlayStation®2 version to the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®5 consoles and features newly added features. Therefore, the title may play differently than the PlayStation®2 version or some features may cause the title to not work properly. This version does not support the PlayStation®2 console peripherals, so some features may not be available.
