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.
