Hot off The Darkness II, it's been announced that Namco Bandai has signed with Paramount Pictures to co-publish and distribute the upcoming Star Trek in development at Digital Extremes for Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3. This co-op game is set to come out in Q1 of 2013, prior to J.J. Abrams' next movie hitting theaters on May 17.
Though I'm traditionally wary of videogames even remotely attached to films, it's hard for me not to be excited about the game. It's got an original story, lets you play as Spock and Kirk, and you're fighting to stop a "legendary enemy race." Even if things go sour, Star Trek should be interesting at the very least.
