LEGO Indiana Jones 2 Confirmed, Level Creation Included
The LEGO-based video games have always been relatively solid and great fun to play - especially co-op - so we won't complain that a sequel to LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures is headed our way this fall.
According to ShackNews, developer Traveller's Tales and publisher LucasArts have confirmed that LEGO Indiana Jones 2 will release for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, DS, and PSP this fall, and that comes as good news to all Indy and LEGO fans everywhere. The follow-up title is described as "a tongue-in-cheek take on all four cinematic adventure of pop culture's most iconic archaeologist," and that of course includes last year's newest film adventure, "The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull." Of course, the first three movies were depicted in varying ways in the first LEGO Indiana Jones so we fully expect to see all new scenarios in the sequel. Oh, and one more thing: we'll be able to build our own levels "brick by brick!" After all, isn't that what LEGOs were always for? We're not entirely sure of the depth involved in this level creation, but the mere fact that it exists is enough for the time being, and we'll be interested to see how it turns out. In all honesty, you're typically better off with the LEGO-ized game adaptation of a movie than you are of any other licensed game based on a film.
If you enjoyed past iterations in this franchise, there's little doubt that you'll have fun with LEGO Indiana Jones 2. Now, when will see LEGO X-Men...?
