Ubisoft have announced a pre-event invitation-only press conference before the start of this year's E3 Expo, to preview the games which they will be showing there.

It will be held on June the 6th, 2011 at 2:30 pm PST, at the Los Angeles Theatre; for those who can't attend, they provide the following information:

"For fans not attending E3, Ubisoft’s press conference will be streamed live at http://www.uplay.com and http://www.youtube.com/ubisoft. In addition, key elements from Ubisoft’s E3 booth, including exclusive interviews with developers and game trailers, will be available to view online at http://www.youtube.com/ubisoft."

UPDATE TO THE ABOVE: Check out the YouTube links for coverage of the event: there are interviews with Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg, game production concept art, and clips of the characters moving and interacting. You also get a chance to listen to what may be John Williams’ music on the soundtrack in the background, and to hear that Haddock has a Scottish accent (not that I’m biased in any way…!).

I’d also warn you that it is part of a longer even, and is surrounded by some very violent games imagery from other products, which may not be suitable for all ages or those of a nervous disposition.

Update update: Ubisoft has uploaded the game trailer to their YouTube channel.

Might be of interest. A video interview with Spielberg and Jackson about the upcoming Tintin videogame, which no doubt is just the first of an avalanche of merchandise we will be seeing once the movie is out.

Some great concept art as well, and it looks like Jackson is sitting in front of a set for the Crab with the Golden Claws?

Thanks for the links Mr Jock!!!
ramblings:
> I find it rather funny though that Tintin's face is still hidden...how long do they intend to keep it from seeing more of it? And, i wonder whose face/s they used as a model for his face? (a lot of other video-game characters used models--whether famous or not--as the basis for how the face looks like...)
> Regarding the voices: are those Jamie Bell and Andy Serkis? Or did they hire different people to do the voice acting?

The official site is up and running, with a gallery of further screen-shots, and the information that the game will cost £29.99 in the U.K.

I think Tintin looks great, although there's no denying he looks more than a little like a younger Tilda Swinton.

It's an action game?

I've always thought that Tintin should be made an adventure game, perhaps by Telltale Games, with a similar vein to LucasArt's Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. The combination of the fist-fighting and problem solving would be very suitable for Tintin. But I guess that's to be expected. Adventure games are pretty much a niche genre nowadays.

I couldn't find a way to link it to the relevant section on GameFAQs, so I encourage all of you to do research on it.

It's official - the Tintin game is coming out on the 21st October 2011, the Friday before the release of the movie in Europe.

It is coming out on: Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo3Ds and PC.

You can pre-order it now at Game.


Moderator Note: Hi Henry, Thanks for your enthusiasm in contributing to the forums - it's really appreciated! However, your posts would be easier to read if you didn't put a capital letter at the start of every word - you only need them for the first letter of a sentence, or for names and titles. It really would help.
Your post has been edited in this way, and it is much clearer.

Many thanks for your help.

Looking forward to this game...

The only thing I wasn't happy about was that in an early trailer, Tintin was firing a shotgun from his side-car. Not very Tintin, that...

But apparently Ubisoft got a few angry letters 'cos in a more recent trailer, he appears to be firing a catapult... :)

Anyway, I'll surely pick up a copy of this game!
