You can now officially add Guardians of the Galaxy to Telltale’s growing list of episodic adaptations.
Confirming earlier rumors to be true, the studio posted a brief teaser trailer for its new licensed series during The Game Awards 2016. There was no actual gameplay on display, as instead we saw Star-Lord’s iconic cassette player drifting through space. What power ballads can we expect on Telltale’s particular awesome mix? We’ll find out soon enough.
In tandem with the reveal, Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games, championed the rich nature of Guardians of the Galaxy – the story, the world and of course, those wise-cracking characters – which ought to fit right into Telltale’s wheelhouse.
“The energizing blend of humor, emotion, teamwork, and full-on sci-fi action-adventure of the Guardians provides an enormously satisfying space to explore through Telltale’s unique style of interactive storytelling. In Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, players will take on multiple roles within the ragtag band of heroes, and take the pilot’s seat in directing their escapades around the universe. We are always honored to be working with the best creative partners and storytellers in entertainment, and working with Marvel on this series leaves us excited to share what we’ve been developing when it premieres in 2017.”
Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is pegged for a premiere in 2017. Stay tuned for further information regarding platforms and an official release date, which we expect will align neatly with the arrival of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 on May 5, 2017.
