Face-Punching As Foreign Policy
After nearly an hour of Star Wars news from LucasFilm's Steve Sansweet, the director of content management told the enormous San Diego Comic-Con gathering that he had forgotten one thing, and the Indiana Jones theme hit.
LEGO Indiana Jones the Video Game is coming to a videogame system near you.
Yes, LucasArts is teaming with TT games once again to put a plastic spin on a familiar franchise. The title will give gamers the chance to play through the first three Indy flicks with the plastic pieces and blocks they know and love.
Sansweet showed a brief trailer that featured a number of the franchise's favorite scenes redone in LEGO vision. The opening scene said "South America 1936" and showed Indy marching a group through the tall grass. Two natives shot darts at our hero -- however, the darts miss Indy and whack the opposite shooters.
From there we got some brief gameplay moments of Indy leaping around and swinging with his whip, firing off his gun and running from a LEGO boulder chasing him down a hallway.
At the end, the words onscreen announced that you could expect the game summer 2008, but it didn't mention platforms.
This looks great!
