Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest Delayed Again, Coming to PlayStation 3 with 'Move' Support

Apparently that path to Mordor is even trickier than we previously thought, as publisher Warner Bros. now expects the "friendly action-adventure game" The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest to arrive in fall 2010--a full year after it was originally expected.

Along the revised release date, Warner Bros. also revealed that a PlayStation 3 edition of Aragorn's Quest is now due alongside the other versions and will pack support for the console's motion-sensing PlayStation Move controller. In the company's words:

Utilizing PlayStation's upcoming motion controller for precision through mastery, The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest videogame engages players with intuitive motion-control gameplay where every controller gesture instantly and accurately translates to weapon strikes in the game. Exclusively for the PlayStation 3 system and Wii, two-player motion controlled co-op gameplay featuring Gandalf allows kids, families and friends to battle side-by-side in the heart of the action.

TT Fusion (formerly Embryonic Studios) is handling the PlayStation 3 iteration alongside its previously announced PlayStation 2, PSP and Nintendo DS iterations, with Headstrong Games (House of the Dead: Overkill) behind the Wii edition.

    Hopefully the graphics are super beefed up as well. No one wants to see a Wii port on PS3. They better make it legitimately a Playstation Move title and not just port because they both have motion controls. BTW, does this mean the PS3 will get a rendition of MadWorld? I've always wanted to play that game and the PS3 would be a perfect home for it's ultra-violence considering most PS3 owners are of the older and more mature variety. Well, it used to be before the price drop...
