After winning such accolades as "best game based on a movie of the year" and the hearts of Indiana Jones and LEGO fans around the world, the block-wearing fedora adventurer may becoming back.

That's great news, and puts to rest all fears that Indyfans had seen the last of their hero -- now let's just hope the flesh and blood version rears his head again!

Next Indiana Jones Game Canned?
13/01/09, 10:32am EST

What has been in development Hell almost as long as the last script for Indy 4? The Next Gen Indiana Jones Game! Now, IGN is reporting that Indy may not be coming soon to a next gen gaming system near you! Though LucasArts will not confirm or deny the story here is what IGN is saying:

IGN has heard from multiple sources (both internally at LucasArts and elsewhere) involved in the long-in-development Indiana Jones title for Xbox 360 and PS3 that the game has been cancelled. Unofficially we've heard that developers are being reallocated to other projects and that the new Indiana Jones project that we last reported on in April 2006 is dead in the water.

If true, this should come as no real surprise as the game has gone dark for nearly the last three years, and with its total absence at last year's E3, this seemed like it was only a matter of time.

If it is indeed true, it is a sad day for Indy gamers -- Here's hoping LEGO Indy 2 is still alive and kicking!

UPDATE: Gaming site Joystiq has published a response from a LucasArts representative that sounds slightly more hopeful!

"LucasArts remains absolutely committed to the Indiana Jones franchise. While we are aware that fans have been eagerly awaiting additional information on the upcoming game, they can rest assured that details are forthcoming."

Thanks to Andrew, Mark, Matthew, David Medina and Ed Dolista for pointing out this news story.

New Staff of Kings Video Game Trailer
24/01/09, 10:36am EST

A new trailer for Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings has appeared online on YouTube announcing that the new video game will be released on the Wii, Nintendo DS and and an unidentified PlayStation console this Spring!

Although the source is vague -- why YouTube and no mention at the official LucasArts site? -- the trailer itself looks much promising with its 100% pre-rendered cinematic action (meaning no in-game footage) and a very nice resemblance of a younger Harrison Ford.

While most fans are happy with this new Staff of Kings game trailer, there is some disappointment present as to why LucasArts is not releasing this game on the "next gen" Xbox 360 and PS3.

Jason at the great Mixnmojo has the following to say on this "next gen" matter:

This trailer would seem to confirm suspicions that the internally developed, Euphoria-enabled 360/PS3 version that has been in some stage of development for five years has been scrapped, and that LEC is now going to simply publish the 3rd party Wii, PS2, and handheld ports that did not suffer the same production problems. ...

Visit Mixnmojo to read the full article.

Thanks to Greg Mills, Josh Hannah, Mitchell Hallock, Bernd, Mark, 'Whipdude', and Jan de Haan for informing us.

GameSpot Previews Staff of Kings
04/05/09, 12:12pm EST

GameSpot has published a preview of the Wii version of Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings game. The written preview comes with a video showing much new in-game action and glimpses of cut scenes.

And here follows an excerpt from GameSpot's first look:

Staff of Kings appears to be heading in the right direction in terms of keeping the classic Indiana Jones feel. The script got the seal of approval from George Lucas as well as Steven Spielberg, and parts of John Williams' movie score is included as well for you to hum along to. We didn't get a chance to mess around with the controls, but we were told that heavy action sequences are spaced out enough so that you shouldn't get tired from excessive motion control.

More gameplay videos can be found on GameSpot here.
Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings will arrive in stores on June 9th, 2009!

Thanks to Xavier Arijs for the link.

Staff of Kings Novelization Cancelled
01/06/09, 10:52am EST

A planned novel adaptation of the upcoming Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings video game has been cancelled. And that while the novel, written by Indy veteran Rob MacGregor, was completed.

The book and the game were originally scheduled to come out in June of 2008, simultaneously with Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Both were pushed back to the fall of '08, then June '09 as the Indy operation underwent a shake-up.
After that, the game and book were pushed back yet another year to June of '10. But then the ambitious plans for a new Indy game platform were dropped, and the new video game was moved back to June '09 using the current game platform.

Thus with the video game coming out in two weeks, and the book a year later, they decided to cancel it. Which is all too bad as a game is not a novel.

The only other new and upcoming Indy novels we know about are the two young reader adventures Indiana Jones and the Mystery of Mount Sinai and Indiana Jones and the Pyramid of the Sorcerer released earlier this month. And all older fans still have the upcoming Indiana Jones and the Army of the Dead to look out for when it arrives in stores on September 29, 2009.

More Staff of Kings Reviews
11/06/09, 12:24pm EST

Here are the latest Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings game reviews of the Nintendo Wii version. Followed by quotes from the reviewers.

Journal & Courier - reviewed by Doug Elfman:

... while this is a better-than-decent Wii game, it doesn't give you many choices to make on your own, and that makes Staff of Kings feel like an artifact of games of yore.

Kansas City Star - reviewed by Billy O'Keefe:

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings is, when its ideas are working, a crazy good time that deftly embodies the spirit of the films. That's a good thing, too, because when its ideas aren't working, Kings is a mess teetering on collapse.

The Washington Times - reviewed by Joseph Szadkowski:

Despite the hefty package of extras and fairly successful use of Wii interaction, I couldn't get past the mediocre visuals and some of the repetitive level difficulty. It's hard to believe the company that came out with Jedi Unleashed on the Wii could not find a better way to present Staff of Kings. It has all the history and fun of an Indiana Jones adventure but is just too hard on the wrists and eyes.

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings arrives in Europe tomorrow, June 12th.

We hope our fans are as excited as we are about our plans and we can’t wait to share what’s coming next. This is just the beginning."

This series of launches continues LucasArts' new mission to revitalize its deep portfolio of beloved gaming franchises.

G4 Interviews the Folks Behind LEGO Indy 2
27/08/09, 11:16am EST

Think the new Indy LEGO video game will only have a new Crystal Skull section and that's all? Well... You're wrong! The folks at G4 interviewed Matt Shell the man behind the LEGO Indy sequel and best of all they have video footage of the new game. So see this sneak peak right here:

G4 spoke with LucasArts' Jeff Shell at GamesCom 2009 about LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues, that video game where a famous movie character is portrayed as made of plastic LEGO blocks.
According to Shell, part 2 is a not a remake or rehash.

"This is a true, legitimate sequel," Shell told us. "We've taken all the aspects of the original game and brought those original adventures back to the sequel in a new way, so you won't be replaying any of the scenes from the first game… It’s completely re-told."

We also got the inside word and an early look at LEGO Indy 2's builder mode that allows for the creation of original levels, the game's massive improvement to the hub system, and a look at the new split-screen that allows co-op players to separate as far as they want. At last! Plus, LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues contains exciting scenes and characters from Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The game comes out across platforms this fall.

This game will no doubt fill the hunger Indyfans were left with after the so-so Indy and Staff of Kings video game that came out this year! So get the buttons a clicking... Indy's coming back!

Indy's Greatest Adventures Returns to Wii
17/11/09, 10:28am EST

If you thought the only way to live out Indiana Jones adventures in the video game realm only looked like LEGO bricks, well you are wrong! The good folks at Nintendo have dusted off the computer chips and resurrected the Super Nintendo System classic; Indiana Jones Greatest Adventures (and we ain't talking a night with Willie Scott). For only 800 Wii points you can download the game that made controllers melt with action and made thumbs sore with whip cracking action. Joystiq.com has this brief write-up about the return of this "lost" Indy game:

Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures (SNES, 1 player, 800 Wii Points): Before Lego Indiana Jones took a stab at the three original films, there was this SNES classic. You'll play through classic moments from the movies, such as the boulder chase from Raiders of the Lost Ark and the mine cart chase from Temple of Doom.

So, return to a time when the only Next Generation meant Star Trek, the word "Wii" was still just a pronoun or French for "yes" and Indy battled 64 bit enemies without the help of Mutt Williams!

And be sure to check out Nintendo Life for their review of the game.
