Death defying antics? Leaps across wide canyons? Breaking apart enemies with a whip? Your hat snapping onto your head? Yeah! Sounds like Lego Indiana Jones to me. While the first was delegated to a pack-in for the Xbox 360, it seemed to have received wide praise across all platforms.
The bricked up Dr. Jones is at it again, with a brand new adventure. According to Activision and TellTale, the game will hit later this year with a new “hook”. This instance of Lego Indy is to include user created levels. It will be available for the DS, PSP, Xbox 360, Wii, PS2, PS3. Hit the jump for the PR.
