The internet has been in collective cuteness overload since the debut of Baby Yoda in The Mandalorian, the new live-action Star Wars series running on streaming service Disney Plus. As such, it was only a matter of time before the little cutie was modded into one of the many Star Wars games available.
That game is Star Wars: Battlefront 2, and the modder is Nanobuds. Posting a sneak peek of their work so far on the Star Wars: Battlefront subreddit, Nanobuds shared an image of Baby Yoda rendered in Battlefront 2’s character view screen. The baby is in one of Yoda’s standard poses, sitting cross-legged while floating in the air, all wise and adorable like.
Unfortunately there’s no download link just yet, and it might be a while before you’re conquering the galaxy with the wee green baby. Nanobuds just put out a damaged Vader mod for Battlefront 2 right before this, and shared a look at another mod on Twitter that places Sans from Undertale into the shooter, so they’ve got a few projects in the works. Something tells us the love for Baby Yoda isn’t going to subside any time soon, though, so there’s no rush.
Star Wars fans have been a bit spoiled of late. Aside from The Mandalorian, there’s Respawn Entertainment’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which released just two weeks ago to generally high praise, not least from our own Richard Scott-Jones, who called it “one of the best representations of the Star Wars universe there’s ever been in a game.”
Fallen Order headed up EA’s return to Steam after an eight year split between the two. EA’s games now release via EA Access on Steam, the first publisher-specific subscription service to be available on the store. EA, who has exclusive publishing rights for new games based on the franchise, has confirmed another new Star Wars is in the pipeline, though not within the next year or two.
