Though the PlayStation Move was only unveiled hours ago, companies are already beginning to pile onto the PlayStation motion-control bandwagon. The first publisher to jump aboard post briefing was Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, which announced Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest would support the LED controller- and camera-based system when it launches in the fall. The game was previously announced for the Wii, PlayStation 2, PSP, and DS.

Though it is based on director Peter Jackson's 2001-2003 live-action Lord of the Rings film trilogy, Aragorn's Quest is closer in spirit to the 1977 Rankin-Bass animated version of The Hobbit. According to WBIE, the title will be "the first Lord of the Rings game created specifically for kids and their families."

The game sees players taking control of the titular hero during his journeys to protect the Hobbit ringbearers on their quest to destroy the soul-corrupting One Ring and vanquish the evil Dark Lord Sauron. The cheerfully hued game will feature "a friendly, colorful rendition of Middle-Earth" and see players engaging in sword fights, lancing, and archery.
