When third-person action game Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings drops on June 2nd, it will feature a very special guest: Space rogue Han Solo is a playable character in the game. Check out video of the crossover here.
"But wait a minute," you may be saying, "Indiana Jones takes place in the mid part of the 20th century on earth, and Star Wars clearly took place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Does LucasArts really expect us to believe that the Millennium Falcon's hyper-drive is so powerful it can transport Han Solo millions of light years in distance while simultaneously traveling centuries forward in time? And even if it could, where is Chewbacca?? And if Han Solo was going to visit earth, why would he be an archaeologist, and not, say, a super-hero or outer-space ambassador for the Alliance?"
My answer: Maybe there was some kind of time warp or something. Who cares? they're just dumb movies and video games! It's surprising that this game is even coming out at all, honestly, so maybe worrying about cross-universe consistency is beside the point. The game has been in development for a long time -- it was originally announced way back in 2005!
Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings will be available on June 9th for the Wii, PlayStation 2, PSP and Nintendo DS. Sorry, PS3 and 360 versions gamers. Although LucasArts hasn't officially commented, according to some sources, the current-gen versions of it have been scrapped.
