Last night I had the pleasure of attending a special LucasArts screening together with our friends of Mixnmojo.com. Despite some rumors that Full Throttle 2 would not be announced at E3, we actually got to see a full-blown trailer of this upcoming adventure game. Although we had some minor criticisms, I was pleased to see that Ben had made the transition to 3D quite successfully. The trailer showed some action packed bar fights, high-speed motorcycle chases as well as some other cut scene stuff. It may not be a pure adventure game, but it looked very interesting nonetheless.
LucasArts has announced that Full Throttle 2 is in production. Here's a portion of the press-release:Full Throttle, one of the most loved classic adventures from LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC, returns in a long awaited action packed sequel for next generation consoles and PC in 2003. The follow up to the award winning game from 1995 will once again feature one of LucasArts' most popular and enduring characters, the swaggering outlaw biker Ben, leader of a renegade motorcycle gang called the Polecats. The free wheeling action-adventure will offer a humorous original story, furious bare knuckle fighting, and the thrill of high speed biking.
