Star Wars: Rebel Assault (スターウォーズ・レベル・アサルト) is a Sega Mega-CD full-motion video rail shooter developed by LucasArts. A port of the developer's titular 1993 IBM PC game Star Wars: Rebel Assault, it was first published in the United States by JVC Musical Industries in March 1994, and was later brought to Europe by the same publisher the following September. That same month, it was localized and published in Japan by Victor Entertainment, and was even later published in Brazil by Tec Toy.
