SAN RAFAEL, Calif.,
Mar. 9, 2017 – Award-winning developer and publisher of digital entertainment, Telltale Games, along with Marvel Entertainment, today shared the world-first screenshots and cast details for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, set to premiere digitally this Spring on consoles, PC, and mobile devices. -Telltale Games
I’m over here on my lunch break, shoveling a taco bowl and a large fountain Coke in my face when this slides across my metaphorical desk (read: email inbox). Telltale Games announced Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series back in December at The Game Awards 2016, but they’ve just officially released casting details and screenshots for the first time. The game will follow Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot as they come to conflict over the use of a relic of “unspeakable power”, which is also being pursued by an enemy who will “stop at nothing to tear it from their hands”. I don’t know about you, but I’m already all the way the fuck on board with this.
As with every Telltale Game, the player’s decisions and actions drive the story they experience. But since this is Guardians of the Galaxy, it’ll be set to the beat of an undoubtedly phenomenal soundtrack. Telltale also says they’re going to be talking more about the game at PAX East this weekend and the creation process behind it. For more information on that, click right here. Unfortunately (though not unsurprisingly), Telltale’s Guardians will not feature any voice acting from the film’s cast. Here’s the lineup for the game:
Star-Lord: Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights, The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series)
Gamora: Emily O’Brien (The Young and the Restless, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor)
Rocket: Nolan North! (the Uncharted series, literally a billion other games)
Drax: Brandon Paul Eells (Watch Dogs)
Groot: Adam Harrington (The Wolf Among Us, League of Legends)
Obviously, I’m stoked to see (hear?) Nolan North in there as Rocket Raccoon, and the rest of the cast is not without their own stellar pedigrees as well. Telltale’s Guardians is coming this Spring to most digital gaming platforms, and will arrive to retail stores as a special “season pass” disc, which unlocks access to all five episodes as they become available.
Telltale’s Guardians looks like it’s already shaping up to be a hell of a game, just like most of the other games they’ve dropped. I for one am looking forward to scoping out whatever additional details I can tomorrow at PAX East, and I’ll make sure to get them to all of you as they become available.
