Well, this was inevitable. But it's still kind of exciting. Traveler's Tales, the company behind great games like "LEGO Star Wars," "LEGO Indiana Jones," "LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean," "LEGO Harry Potter," and the upcoming "LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes" (releasing for PS3 on June 19, 2012), announced the existence of "LEGO Lord of the Rings" today, to be released this Fall. Spawned by both the J.R.R. Tolkien books and the Peter Jackson films ("The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring," "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers," and "The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King"), the game will merge the quirky LEGO sensibility with the saga of Frodo, Sam, Aragorn, Legolas, Gandalf, and the rest of the Middle Earth crew. Family games with a heavy emphasis on puzzle-solving, the LEGO series has been one of the most successful, both critically and commercially, of the last decade. Stay tuned for more news on "LEGO: The Lord of the Rings" as it's announced.
