DOZENS of Star Wars fans dressed up as popular characters while waiting to get their hands on a new computer game. 

People kitted out as Jedi Knights and Darth Sidious descended on Game, Victoria Square in Bolton,  to get their copy of Star Wars: Battlefront.

The store opened its doors from 10pm to accommodate those queuing to buy the first copies of the highly-anticipated game, which was released at midnight.


Simon Meadow, manager of the store, said: "We had over 40 people who came last night to get a copy of the game.

"A lot of the fans dressed up, but it wasn’t chaotic everything was quite organised. The store was open until 1am."

Hundreds of Game stores across the country opened their doors last night to allow customers the chance to get the first copies of the game.
