ATLUS, in collaboration with HBO and Cyanide Studios, have unveiled North American publishing plans for "Game of Thrones," an action RPG based on the internationally bestselling "A Song of Ice and Fire" series of books by George R. R. Martin and critically acclaimed HBO television series, "Game of Thrones".

The game will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. With an original story written under the supervision of Martin, Game of Thrones promises to deliver the ultimate interactive role-playing experience for fans. The game is filled with familiar locations straight from the pages of the beloved fantasy saga along with the likeness of some actors portrayed in the series.

"The Game of Thrones television series and the A Song of Ice and Fire book series it is based on represent some of the most captivating, original medieval fantasy and drama ever created," commented Shinichi Suzuki, President and CEO of Index Digital Media, Inc. "Its amalgam of bitterly antagonistic rival houses, deeply nuanced characters, intricate political machinations, and breathtaking fantasy-all set within a richly storied world-offers unparalleled realism and raw emotion. We are honored to work with HBO, Cyanide Studios, and the great George R. R. Martin in bringing an exciting action RPG set in this beloved fantasy universe to fans and gamers in early 2012."

Players will enter the gritty and medieval fantasy world of Westeros in this 30-plus hour action RPG. As one of two original characters with disparate motivations, both former soldiers of Robert's Rebellion, players will forge alliances and wage battles as they play a pivotal role in the ongoing war for power of the Seven Kingdoms. Their journey will span numerous quests, during which they will interact with many characters and make key decisions that impact the realm.

Game of Thrones is currently scheduled to release in early 2012 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

I absolutely love the books, and have enjoyed the TV series, too. But I have a hard time picturing a video game that would be really entertaining in this mythology. It's much more about intrigue and relationships than swords and sorcery.
