Telltale Games have revealed the first trailer and cast details for Minecraft: Story Mode – A Telltale Games Series.
Shown at ‘Minecon’ in London, the first trailer can be seen below. An all new narrative driven five part game series from the episodic masters, you’ll find new characters and familiar themes, in a Minecraft experience that will continue to inspire a generation.
Taking on the role of Jesse – portrayed by actor Pattan Oswalt, you and your friends will admire the legendary Order of the Stone; four adventurers who slayed an Ender Dragon. The Order are the very best at what they do: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect. While at EnderCon, Jesse and his friends discover that something is wrong… something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and they must set out on a journey to find The Order of the Stone if they are to save their world from oblivion.
The season will feature Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West,and Paul Reubens. Additional casting details are set to follow soon.
“We’ve worked closely with the amazing team at Mojang to ensure this story is a natural fit for the Minecraft world fans already know and love,” said Kevin Bruner, CEO and co-founder of Telltale Games. “As Jesse, players will steer their own path through a tale of adventure and survival; all brought to life by an all-star cast. Through Telltale’s choice-based gameplay and a story spanning from the Nether to the Farlands, the End, and beyond, we can’t wait for fans to experience this new take on the beloved world of Minecraft.”
“The interactive storytellers at Telltale are giving players the chance to explore their own unique interpretation of the Minecraft universe,” said Owen Hill, Chief Word Officer at Mojang. “They’ve crafted a story that follows the logic of Minecraft, but still manages to feel original. It’s actually pretty funny too. And the pig is adorable. We’re super excited about players digging deeper into the world of Minecraft: Story Mode later this year.”
Completely separate from the core Minecraft experience, the game will be coming to the usual Telltale suspects of Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, PC, iOS and Android later in 2015.
