Lenovo might be working on an augmented reality game with its Mirage headset

Back in the summer of 2017, Lenovo introduced Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, an augmented reality game that let you have real lightsaber battles. The package came with a replica of Luke Skywalker's lightsaber, along with Lenovo's Mirage headset.

While Lenovo hasn't used this headset for anything else, that might be changing, according to some FCC filings. The filings refer to Mirage 1.5, and it also refers to Mirage 1.5 Marvel Controller. That's right; this new game will likely be based on the Marvel franchise.

That's no surprise, since the entire Star Wars: Jedi Challenges experience was developed in close collaboration with Disney, including the Mirage headset. That means that future projects using the same technology will also likely have something to do with Disney properties, such as Marvel.

Spotted by Variety, the filing refers to both a "standalone Marvel controller" along with a "Marvel package". That's good news for anyone that bought into Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, because it means that customers will be able to purchase just the controller if they already have the Mirage headset. If not, you can also buy the package.

While the Star Wars: Jedi Challenges package is currently being sold for $94.99 at Best Buy, it originally launched at $199.99. It seems likely that a Marvel game would have similar pricing. as far as timing goes, the game would have to arrive soon if Lenovo wants to line up with Avengers: Endgame.
