LucasArts has announced that the next installment in its charming and incredibly fun LEGO Indiana Jones franchise, creatively titled Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues, is scheduled for a Fall 2009 release on all major consoles. And while I still wake up every morning hoping to see some bit of news about a truly next-gen Indy game, I can’t really complain about a new LEGO installment, except for the fact that it includes a LEGO version of Shia “One Drink” LeBeouf’s Mutt Williams.
One of the more intriguing additions this time around is the Build Your Own Adventure Mode, which lets you build and share standalone levels or “combine [levels] with existing ones,” whatever that might look like. Plus, how can you say no to reliving all new sequences from the films and having access to planes, boats and mine carts. Adorable, adorable mine carts.
No word yet on whether LEGO will be on display at E3 alongside Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings for the Wii, but if it is, you’ll find out all about it during G4’s E3 ’09 coverage.
