Star Wars: Assault Team will eventually be released on iOS, Android and Windows 8.

The new Star Wars game, unveiled today, is described as "a new turn-based combat game for mobile devices with strategy and card-battle elements."

"Collect classic characters from the Rebel Alliance and more to defeat enemies and players across the galaxy," reads a post on the Disney Interactive blog. "Strategically deploy the team’s special tactics to battle through new graphically enhanced missions set throughout Star Wars planets and locations from the original trilogy."

The game is available now in "select international markets" for iOS and Android, and will roll out for those platforms as well as Windows 8 "this spring."

Disney and EA last year announced a partnership to develop Star Wars games over multiple years with the EA studios Visceral Games, BioWare, and DICE, but Assault Team appears to have nothing to do with that deal.
