Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings Trailer feat. music by John Williams

Looks like Indy is back - back to his 30s-era self and back to gaming consoles. recently posted this new trailer for the long rumored game. The trailer makes extensive use of music from INDIANA JONES and the KINGDOM OF CRYSTAL SKULL by JOHN WILLIAMS, specifically "The Adventures of Mutt." This is a strange choice as this theme represents Indy's son, not Indy...and it's in Williams' more contemporary style which I don't personally consider iconic for Dr. Jones. Of course, we do get a quick quote of the main theme as well.

One other sad note. It looks like this game is coming only to the WII (although it will likely be pretty fun), Playstation 2 and PSP. Rumors were that this game was going next-gen and that it would use the same technologies from THE FORCE UNLEASHED. Too bad that seems to have fallen through.

No word on who is set to score the game. I'd bet on music from John Williams' existing scores. I'll certainly post any official information I can get regarding the game's music.
