    Lucas Arts decided to grace the famous Indiana Jones on Wii. Expect this to hit around Spring 2009 for Wii, DS, and PSP. The video only says playstation but the PEGI already rated the DS and PSP versions. This most likely took over for the, rumored to be canceled, Xbox/ PS3 Indiana Jones game.

    Does this game use Harrison Ford for the voices or not? I couldn't tell from small amount of speech he had.

    I hope it's either Harrison Ford or Doug Lee (from Fate of Atlantis).

    It's LucasArts! They haven't done a decent Wiimote lightsaber.. I doubt they'll do a decent Wiimote whip [​IMG]

    Besides, a PSP version coming along means that the Wii version will be the same game but stretched to fit a bigger screen..

    Cheers to wrist sprains everywhere. No but seriously why did indie look nothing like indie...and sound like he needed a throat lozenge?

    Hopefully it's good, the whip should be fun with the WiiMote.

    Did you ever hear about how LucasArts got upset at Nintendo over the Motion Plus? They would of loved to use it for the Clone Wars game, but Nintendo kept it to themselves for the most part until it was revealed, and the development was too far in to scrap it to take advantage of it.

    And there's not much to a whip. You just...whip. You don't duel with whips.

    This could have a great gameplay on the Wii with pointing to aim weapons and to aim at places to throw your whip at and of course wiimote whipping just for fun [​IMG]

    But, since there's a PSP version announced.. the Wii one will probably be just a port of that with some unnecessary gimmicky controls.. I hope I'm wrong [​IMG]

    Glad to see my post made the front page!!! [​IMG]

    But on topic, I think this could have potential... or could be horrible. The last Indiana Jones on the O.G. xbox was pretty good. But then again I have no idea who developed that game and who's developing this game. As long as Lucas Arts remember Indy is no way your standard action man (who kills everything he sees), I think this has potential. It appears that's the way there handling it considering Indy runs through out the video. But then again the video could have been from the HD Indy game only with title replaced just so they can get some early buzz while they wait to port the PSP version to Wii (highly possible since the PSP and DS version was rated first). Well just have to wait and see.

    With "PSP" and "Wii" on the same paragraph... You know it's bad.

    looks ok but as its all cgi footage you cant tell what it will be like. One thing is for sure though the DS version will suck just like 98% of the games for the console.

    Maybe that percentage is right for the games you have played on DS. Or you're just really picky...

    If the graphics on the game are half the quality than the video, it is good for me...!!! [​IMG]

    Is this the same title that was in development for 360?
    What's happened to the Xbox game, I remember seeing videos for it years ago.
