Did you like Psychonauts?  Did you find it clever, funny, smart and overall a fantastic platforming experience.  They’re you’re probably going to like this news.

Tim Schafer’s newest game, Brutal Legend, will be published by EA to be released next fall!  Here’s a game summary:

Brütal Legend tells the tale of Eddie Riggs, played by Jack Black, who is drawn back through time to a mythical world immersed in Rock and Roll folklore; where great Metal titans once ruled and power chords rang from the countryside for all to hear. When an oppressed people request Eddie’s knowledge of modern warfare, he pulls from his own experience in the only occupation he’s ever had, a roadie for a Heavy Metal band. From this springs the most hellacious army man has ever seen, and thus brings this ancient world into the Age of Metal.

Sometime in July Activision (after their merging with Blizzard) announced that they would be publishing Sierra’s games and Brutal Legend was left off the list.  The game was called a “very significant creative risk” by EA’s own CEO John Riccitiello, but it looks like despite that, they’ve decided to go ahead and publish it!

This is very exciting.  Psychonauts, despite being on multiple top ten games lists, was under played and overlooked by the masses.  I know Bird and I took turns playing it many a Christmas Break afternoon. You can find the game at any used bargin bin, or purchase the game through Xbox Original Marketplace for 1200 points ($15).  Worth every cent as far as I’m concerned.

The Brutal Legend trailer can be found here. The complete announcement is after the jump.
