Today at their E3 2011 press conference Ubisoft revealed more about a game based off the upcoming Peter Jackson/Steven movie The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn. The game is a mix of different gameplay types, allowing players to step into the shoes of the old school adventurer.

Spielberg and Jackson boast the story of Tin Tin as being one of the most iconic adventurers of all time, and a hero that inspired the film luminaries in their youths. It appears the two are offering consultation in the game's development on some level.

The trailer showed Tintin and his trusty dog Snowy in action. Players will be able to control Snowy, fly a plane, and gun down enemies from a motorcycle’s sidecar. The action appears to switch between side-scrolling and 3D gameplay. One gripping sequence has Tintin escaping a sinking ship, with water violently crashing down hallways.

Though the movie is in 3D, it’s still unknown whether the game will support three-dimensional viewing. The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn is due out this fall, in coincidence with the film. It will be available on DS, PS3, 360, Wii, and PSP.
