Telltale Games Will Release a Marvel Game Series in 2017!

Posted by Ronnie Brown Thursday, April 23, 2015
It's a good time to be a Marvel fan. Daredevil premiered on Netflix and was as awesome as anyone could've hoped it would be, Avengers: Age of Ultron will be released in the United States next week, and there has been a ton of Marvel-related news lately. Yet this is probably the most unexpected announcement: Telltale Games will be teaming up with Marvel Entertainment to release a new game series in 2017.

Probably the last partnership I would've expected.

That's right. Telltale Games, arguably the best developer of adapting established franchises into video game series, is taking on one of the biggest properties around. Sadly that is literally all that has been revealed though. There has been absolutely no hint of a story, possible characters involved, or how many episodes will be released. At least we know the game will be released in 2017!

Personally I loved both seasons of The Walking Dead, and the first season of Game of Thrones has been pretty excellent so far, but I'm really hoping that the Marvel game is not another point-and-click game. That style and the focus on great storytelling worked so well for the other franchises, but I can't see how it would work in a Marvel game. Obviously I hope the storytelling is great, but I'd love to see a lot more controllable action than we usually get in one of these games. The possibilities are endless, and it would be awesome to see Telltale go out of its comfort zone a little bit to create something truly special. However, despite any changes Telltale may or may not make to its usual game style, I do hope the cel shaded comic book look continues in this game. It would lend itself perfectly to a Marvel adaptation.

What do you guys think? Are you excited by this partnership, or do you think it's a bad idea? What would you like to see in a Marvel game from Telltale? Let us know in the comments!
