The new Sims 4 game pack, Star Wars: Journey to Batuu dropped last week. If you have played the pack, you might have noticed a few interesting things with the things Sims in Batuu say.
Some Sims speak with special accents in the Sims 4 Star Wars game pack, but there is something else that is unique about this pack.
Sims 4 producer, Antonio Romeo, revealed that the team developed special Simlish words for some of the Star Wars phrases. Simlish, if you don’t know already, is the made-up language used in The Sims games.
Long-time players will be familiar with phrases like ‘sul, sul’ and ‘yibs’, amongst many other odd things.
But now, Simlish has been given some new phrases, thanks to the new Sims 4 Journey to Batuu game pack.
From the iconic, ‘welcome to the dark side’ to ‘these are not the droids you are looking for’, Star Wars phrases were given a special Sims touch. Romeo shared shame of these phrases on Twitter recently.
