EA premieres Godfather trailer

And we've got it on Eurofiles.

Electronic Arts has released a trailer for its film-licensed videogame version of The Godfather, which is expected to hit consoles in late 2005. Download it from Eurofiles here (5MB).

The trailer consists of a rendered version of the late Marlon Brando as Don Corleone sitting in his office delivering a shortened version of the famous "Some day, and that day may never come..." monologue, all the while that music plays in the background.

EA hasn't officially commented on it, but rumour has it that Brando completed the recording of all his dialogue for the game prior to his death earlier this year.

Shortly after we first heard about the Godfather game, sources close to EA also suggested that it was chasing the voices and likenesses of Robert de Niro and Al Pacino to appear alongside Brando - something the publisher hasn't denied either.

The trailer concludes with the promise that we'll get our hands on The Godfather in "Fall 2005", although there's no word on which consoles are being targeted, or any real specifics on how the game will work.

It is however the first time EA has been open about the Godfather project since it was brought to light in March, and suggests that an outpouring of real info can't be too far away.
