MINECON was held in London this weekend, and as expected, a new trailer for Telltale Games’ Minecraft: Story Mode was shown off.
The episodic series will begin “later this year”, with voice acting from Patton Oswalt (who voices the playable protagonist Jesse), Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter,Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West, and Paul Reubens – with more to come!
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. 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.
Kevin Bruner, CEO and co-founder of Telltale Games.
The interactive storytellers at Telltale are giving players the chance to explore their own unique interpretation of the Minecraft universe. 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.
