Telltale’s Minecraft: Story Mode takes the ridiculously popular open-world survival/crafting/whatever game and slaps on a story that is both respectful of the franchise, and loose enough to not become too narrow. To tell this story, the developer pulled in some amazing voice talent from across the entertainment industry. We’ve had some hints at who would be involved via past trailers, but today brings a new one that totally introduces us to the cast.
Featuring the likes of Patton Oswalt, Ashley Johnson, Billy West, Corey Feldman, Dave Fennoy, Cat Taber, Scott Porter, and Brian Posehn, Minecraft: Story Mode surely has a voice you’ll recognize somewhere in it. These actors have been a part of some of the best TV shows, movies, and video games of the last few years, so expect some great work coming from the entire cast.
Minecraft: Story Mode hits the usual Telltale platforms (read: everything) later today, with a retail release coming on October 27th. Telltale’s other series are coming to a close shortly afterward, with Tales from the Borderlands Episode 5 hitting on October 20th, and Game of Thrones Episode 6 should arrive some time after that.
What series will run alongside Minecraft: Story Mode isn’t quite known, although The Walking Dead Michonne Mini-Series should be one of them. Following that could be The Walking Dead Season 3, or an unknown property, such as the Marvel title.
