LucasArts and TT Games have announced that Lego Indiana Jones: The Videogame [working title] will whip onto game consoles next year. Developed by the same team at Traveller's Tales that created the Lego Star Wars series, Indiana Jones presents a tongue-in-cheek take on the first three cinematic adventures of pop culture's iconic archaeologist, including Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
"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 favourite movies, and their kids get some rousing action/adventure gameplay that may also introduce them to Indy's original adventures for the first time."
Lucasfilm recently announced that the Lego Group will begin releasing Lego Indiana Jones playsets in January 2008. Meanwhile, LucasArts remains at work on its Indiana Jones video game, which takes place a year after the Last Crusade in an original story overseen by George Lucas.
