A new trailer for Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings is posted over on StarWars.com, and it shows Han Solo filling in for Indy.
Apparently the surprise for Star Wars fans in the new Indy game was a playable Han Solo. Fancy that.
Hans will be able to use his standard issue laser pistol, but it looks like he will be using the whip more. Just like his alter ego.
Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings is scheduled for release on June 12 for DS, PS2, PSP and Wii.

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings is loaded to the gills with whip use, headbutting, and general fisticuffs.
The video after the break shows just how much, really.
In it, Matt Shell from LucasArts explains how to wield Indy’s iconic weapon with the WiiMote so you can introduce Nazis to your fists.
Game’s out for DS, PS2, PSP, and Wii June 9.

Below is some brand new footage of Indiana Jones & The Staff of Kings gameplay for Nintendo Wii deatiling how the Wii mote will work.
If we’re being honest, we think it looks pretty ace; especially the bit where you pull a bookcase on top of some bad guys with your whip.
Have a look.

LucasArts has renewed its publishing and distribution contract with Activision Blizzard for releases in Australia, Europe and South-East Asia.
The firms have Star Wars: The Force Unleashed to thank for the renewal, due to the title selling 5.7 million units worldwide, thus becoming the bestselling Star Wars game of all time
“This agreement with Activision reflects LucasArts’ commitment to the international markets and we look forward to bringing the best products to our consumers worldwide,” said LucasArts’ Mary Bihr.
“We made the decision based upon Activision’s proven track record in managing strong brands and our long standing relationship which has produced tremendous results as games such as LEGO Indiana Jones and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed have risen to the top of sales charts globally.”
Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings will be the next joint release for the publishers, and it is expected to ship in June.

Original Story: The recently revealed Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings is to feature a co-op campaign – in which Indy fights along side a previously unplayable character – and is set in various locations throughout the globe, Eurogamer reports.
The LucasArts title will ship for DS, PS2, PSP, and Wii, but has no set release date as yet.
Staff of Kings will pit the famous archaeologist against evil rival Magnus Voller, as both try to get their hands on the Staff of Moses.
Expect plenty of puzzles, gun play, bar room brawls and whip usage throughout. And yes, the Wii version will take full physical advantage of motion control for the whip bits.
Different vehicles will be available to get Indy around, including elephants, planes and tanks.
Multiplayer will include four-person interaction where you can wallop each other via different free-for-alls with biplanes, tanks and other as of yet unnamed modes.
Screens look a bit sketchy at present, but can be viewed here.
UPDATE: Looks like you will also be able to unlock the classic Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis game at some point (Kotaku). Might be well worth it after all.

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings has been spotted in movie form, and will apparently be landing on DS, Wii and an unidentified PlayStation platform – presumably PSP – this spring.
It’s after the break. There’s nothing in the way of gameplay footage in the video, but at least it’s got Nazis in it, which is always a bonus.
