Some of the dedicated Indy fans over at the excellent TheRaider.net
have noticed product pages
for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the upcoming Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings
. At first glance, the page doesn't possess anything of value, containing placeholder cover art and a purported release date of March 1st, 2009 (whatever), but upon scrolling down you'll see an official product description (too long to reprint here, though I'll add it to the database entry).
Sure, this doesn't contain all that much info that we didn't already know, but we've never had an official company line for this game yet, and considering the scarcity of the information surrounding Staff of Kings
in general, this marketing spiel is probably worth reading for those hungry for any details. Also, despite the fishy listed date, this is surely an indication that the game's release is somewhere on the horizon.
Major things to point out is that the NaturalMotion and Digital Molecular Matter technology as seen in The Force Unleashed
and boasted about during E3 2006 teasers (two and half years old
, for God's sake) are still quite present, despite some past rumors to the contrary. Note that it is also claimed that you will get to play through key moments from the movies in the original trilogy. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't that clash with the whole Having An Original Story thing? Or is it some sort of side mode? Ah well, there will surely be plenty of time to speculate as LucasArts continues to maintain silent on all things Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings
, which few probably thought would still be in development at this point when it was announced in 2005.Update
: According to Kotaku
, we should expect to see LucasArts re-announce the game next week. (Thanks black_sheep
