[E3 2009] You Know, The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn’s Quest Actually Looks Pretty Good

When I first heard Warner Bros. was making The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn’s Quest a family-friendly Lord of the Rings game, I was skeptical. But now seeing what it looks like I think the more whimsical style actually kinda works, and the story setup of the player living out Aragorn’s adventures as Sam orates the tales to the children of Hobbiton is a neat idea. Sounds like they got Sean Astin to reprise his role as Sam for the voice overs too, which is very good news. Wonder if Viggo Mortensen will be voicing Aragorn as well…

Scroll down to watch the first The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn’s Quest trailer, then hit the jump for a few screenshots. Both show the lead Wii version, but the game is also in development for DS, PS2 and PSP.
