1937 puts a new Indiana Jones game shortly after the events of Raiders of the Lost Ark, so this is a mainstream Indy game we’re dealing with. 1937 is also the year after Mussolini declares an alliance with Hitler’s Germany, so yes, in case there is any doubt, Indy would strike the Nazis in whatever mission he would continue. The ticket indicates a map of Rome and the Vatican indicates that the search may include some Da-Vinci-Code style mysteries and possibly another attempt to collect religious relics of some kind. In other words, this story is shaping up to be a classic Indiana Jones story — no aliens, LaBeouf, or any other weirdness here.
