New 'Back To The Future' game dated for December
Wednesday 27 October 2010
Exactly 25 years after the opening scene of 1985 Hollywood hit
Back To The Future, and coinciding with the release of a remastered DVD and Blu-ray collection, Telltale Games announced that its five-episode continuation of the original trilogy will be coming in December 2010.
Well known for its involvement in adventures such as the Sam & Max and Tales of Monkey Island series, Telltale has not only the voice talents of original actor Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown) on board, but also Bob Gale, the films' co-creator, writer and producer.
Michael J. Fox, Hollywood's Marty McFly, isn't left out of the loop as Telltale has pledged to support his Parkinson's disease research foundation to the tune of $1 per pre-order received.
The announcement accompanies a new set of behind-the-scenes videos, starring Gale, Lloyd, and Telltale's Dennis Lenart (Episode Director) and Julian Kwasneski (Voice Director), including insights on how AJ LoCascio nailed the Marty McFly sound-a-like part.
PlayStation 3 and iPad players alike will be waiting for news on their versions of the game that should follow "shortly" after the PC and Mac debut at $24.95 (~€18).
It will be the first official Back To The Future video game since 1991's Back To The Future III, and in the recent barren years fans have found ways to re-create moments from their favorite childhood film.
Free and unofficial modifications of the PC's Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Crysis are among the best-known examples.
