If you haven’t already heard, the series of movie-based Lego games is set to tackle a new set of films in the near future. Apparently they have a thing for George Lucas, because we all know the next game is Lego Indiana Jones. What’s interesting is the game will not include Nazis.
I’m a bit baffled to hear this, as we all know Indiana Jones has more than a couple run-ins with the German foes. Don’t worry, they haven’t changed the storyline much, they’ve simply “replaced them with an anonymous genocidal, occultist, trenchcoat-wearing master-race.”
I’m not really sure why they decided to get rid of the Nazis (or at least stop calling them Nazis). Perhaps they thought that depicting a (real) group of people that slaughtered millions based solely on their religion would be too much for a game targeted at kids. Then again, how many kids young enough to not know about Nazis are Indiana Jones fans?
