Behind the scenes
Mandalore City was initially planned to appear in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 3, a game set in the Old Republic era with John Stafford as the lead designer of the game as well as Molly Denmark and Cory Allemeier as two of the artists. This video game's story was written sometime around 2004 but, before the game was scheduled for production, Lucasfilm hit a difficult period in its history which culminated in the game's cancellation. This would go unpublicized for four years, until a reference book entitled Rogue Leaders: The Story of LucasArts by Rob Smith was released. The book officially announced the game was both conceived and scratched.
This city is therefore considered non-canon, or not part of the mainstream Star Wars universe. However, the planet on which this city was supposed to appear, Mandalore, is canon as it has appeared in numerous sources since its premiere in 1983 as part of the sixty-eighth issue of the Star Wars Marvel Comics serial.
