Tie fighters have invaded your city, but it's not because of a new George Lucas film. Instead it's the augmented reality video game coming soon to the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 4th Generation devices.

The game is Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner, developed by Vertigore Games and published by THQ Wireless. The AR portion of the game, as shown above, is for it to include your surroundings into your game insert them into the crosshairs of the Millenium Falcon's blasters.

In addition, Star Wars Arcade: Falcon Gunner will include iconic locations from the Star Wars universe, such as the escape from the Death Star, the Battle of Hoth, all with the option of switching between rendered backgrounds and AR from your iDevice’s camera.

No word on a specific launch date, but it's scheduled for late November. Pricing is unknown, as well, but it's an AR Star Wars game ... pull out your wallet and start shooting.

Watch a video demo below.

I have to admit that this is cool stuff. Stick out tongue

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
