Telltale & Marvel reveal first-look at Guardians of the Galaxy game cast

Award-winning developer and publisher of digital entertainment, Telltale Games, along with Marvel Entertainment, today shared the world-first screenshots and cast details for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, set to premiere digitally this Spring on consoles, PC, and mobile devices! 

The game will feature an all-new adventure starring the Marvel universe's most popular A-holes: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot as they discover an artifact of unspeakable power. Each of them has their own reason for desiring this relic, as does a ruthless enemy who is the last of her kind, and who will stop at nothing to tear it from their hands. From Earth to the Milano to Knowhere and beyond, and set to the rhythm of some groovy tunes, you wear the rocket-powered boots of Star-Lord in an original Guardians adventure, where your decisions and actions drive the story into infinity and beyond. Heh, I know this isn't TOY STORY, but I had to do it. 

The following information has been taken from the official press release:

This week at PAX East in Boston, MA on March 10th at 6pm in the Albatross Theater, join the team from Telltale Games as well as Marvel Games Creative Director, Bill Rosemann, to hear more about the series as they discuss the creative process behind this stellar new adventure. The panel will also be streamed live on the Twitch streaming network.

The series will feature a star-studded cast of voice talent, including Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights, The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series) as Star-Lord, Emily O'Brien (The Young and the Restless, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor) as Gamora, Nolan North (the Uncharted series, Pretty Little Liars) as Rocket, Brandon Paul Eells (Watch Dogs) as Drax, and Adam Harrington (The Wolf Among Us, League of Legends) as Groot.

Premiering this Spring, the series will also be coming to retail as a special season pass disc, which will include the first episode in the season, and will grant access to the subsequent four episodes as they become available for download via online updates. Specific platform details are yet to be announced.

While this is sure to get fans excited for the release of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2, this entitled gamer is hoping that Telltale brings something different to the table with this release. I think the Telltale series of games are okay (with Tales from the Borderlands being my favorite), but their choose-your-own-adventure platform is growing a bit long in the tooth with every release. The game will undoubtedly sell like hotcakes, though, so maybe I'm just being a brat.

What I want is variety in game play, and perhaps for Telltale to address the long-standing laundry list of glitches that continue to plague their titles to this very day. Still, Telltale has come a long way in the past decade, and I'm sure that Marvel's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY will provide them with a ton of great source material to create an engaging and worthwhile gaming experience. Here's hoping that they knock this one out into the stratosphere and set a new precedent for their licensed properties going forward.

Telltale and Marvel's five-part adventure is expected for a 2017 release on consoles, PC, and mobile devices.

Extra Tidbit: Other licensed properties that I think are begging for the Telltale treatment are FIREFLY, INDIANA JONES, and Marvel's X-MEN.
