Sometimes it’s really hard to be a fan of comic book games, what with all the news and game announcements outside of Batman: Arkham Knight and the Lego games being mostly unexciting free-to-play and mobile games.
But some mornings, you wake up and find news like this in your Twitter feed.
Announced yesterday evening in San Francisco, the company behind games like The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, Telltale Games, have entered into a partnership with Marvel and will bring a new series based in the Marvel Universe starting in 2017. That’s about all there is to report on this point as no idea was given exactly what property, or perhaps properties, they’ll use for the series. Personally after watching Netflix’s Daredevil I think that character would be a good fit for the Telltale model as the costume adventuring within that series took a back seat to character moments on both the sides of the heroes and the villains. Another great property could be the Inhumans which as of late has become a little like Game of Thrones, a series Telltale is also working on, with the different Inhuman socities and hierarchy butting heads with one another.
What would you like to see Telltale tackle?
