LucasArts and Traveller’s Tales have officially announced Lego Indiana Jones, the next franchise following the runaway success of Lego Star Wars. The game will have players play through the three released films and is scheduled for release in 2008 on unspecified platforms.
“LucasArts and TT Games are setting the bar for next-generation family entertainment with the LEGO Star Wars franchise, and our incredible relationship continues with LEGO Indiana Jones,” said Jim Ward, president of LucasArts. “In addition to providing the quality bonding time inspired by any good family game, LEGO Indiana Jones delivers something a little different for everyone. Parents will enjoy the humorous take on some of their favorite movies, and their kids get some rousing action/adventure gameplay that may also introduce them to Indy’s original adventures for the first time.”
They’ve also released a trailer from the game, showing off gameplay as well as cinematic footage. You can watch it streaming below, or download it from Rapidshare.
