The Lord of the Rings video games[edit]

After the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2009, Martin Tremblay, President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, said:

The Lord of the Rings franchise is world renowned for its captivating adventures, and we are creating new experiences in the game space designed to appeal to a wide array of consumer tastes from core to casual. The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest is the first of many different types of games we will be developing with the film and literary rights. It is also the first game allowing kids and their families to interact in their favorite locations and stories from The Lord of the Rings with accessible gameplay.[1]
