Battlefront III for the DS?: UPDATED

This from PALGN:

A quick search of the OFLC (Office of Film and Literature Classification) database has revealed Star Wars Battlefront III was recently given a PG classification.

The game is apparently in development for the Nintendo DS, and was given the classification on October 2. It was submitted by Activision Blizzard, who are the distributor of LucasArts products in Australia.

Star Wars Battlefront III has long been rumoured to be in development at UK-based studio Free Radical, though no official announcement has been made. Until now it was thought the game would be appearing on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii, so the alleged existence of a DS version is quite surprising. We’ll report back once new information becomes available.

UPDATE: (Original post 10/12/08):

We were just informed by the French SW site Star Wars Universe that Battlefront III is indeed in production.  You can read the entire story, here, in French, or an English version within here.

We will do our best to get more information on a possible Battlefront III.
