Infinity Blade studio Chair is teaming up with Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams’ (pictured right) Bad Robot studio. The collaboration’s first project, Spyjinx, will be out on PC and mobile devices next year.

Spyjinx is described as an action-strategy game with an espionage theme. In an interview conducted by Geoff Keighley, Abrams explains his reasons for the partnership.

“I’m such a fan of what Chair has made and the things that they’ve allowed me and my kids to play,” Abrams says. “I remember the first time I played Infinity Blade, and it blew my mind what you guys had done with Unreal Engine on that device. I feel like its a natural progression from what we’ve been doing. We really wanted to expand into this area of entertainment.”

If you don’t know anything about Star Wars, you might assume that the latest Battlefront live action commercial is about people taking off their clothes. Thankfully, that’s not the message here.

The new ad is a callback to the scene in A New Hope in which Obi-Wan allows Darth Vader to “strike him down.” What follows is Obi-Wan disappearing, leaving his robes behind in a pile on the Death Star floor.
