Telltale Games have announced details on their new Back to the Future games, most importantly of all the films' co-creator and writer Bob Cale will be consulting on the new platform, which means that the series should be just as great as the films. To celebrate the series' 25th Anniversary Telltale will be releasing the series this winter, just after the Blu-ray and DVD release of the Back to the Future 25th Anniversary Trilogy on October 26th, that will feature all new restorations of the classic films.
Telltale have confirmed that the games will feature the likenesses of Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, and Lloyd will be voicing Doc Brown for the full game series that they will deliver in five monthly episodes. The first images of the in-game depictions of Marty and Doc are available on their website.
Co-creator and writer Bob Gale's involvement on the series will further strengthen the links to the original series, consulting with Telltale on the characterisations, and storylines for the game, fans will find that the series will be true in both the spirit and adventure of the films.
Twenty-five years ago when I wrote Doc Brown’s line about ‘seeing the future,’ little did I realize that I would be traveling with him to work on this game. Collaborating with Telltale is an amazing opportunity to continue the adventures of Doc and Marty.
Telltale have announced the games will feature the DeLorean, and it will be making an appearance at Pax this weekend. We can't wait for the re-release of Back to the Future, let alone the classic series that will come from this great partnership between Telltale Games and Universal.
