There is something magical about first teaser trailers, whether it be for games, movies, or television shows. You know it’s coming, you just don’t know when, but the minute the clip is released, the “repeat” button is worn out.
Telltale just released the first official Guardians of the Galaxy teaser trailer tonight at The Game Awards 2016, and you can bet your Groot-lovin’ asses we’re over the moon about it. Short and sweet, subtle and with a wink to the film, the trailer is only 47 seconds long, but it certainly gets our attention.
While this isn’t news to some, with Telltale having already hinted that the galaxy’s coolest misfits were coming to PCs, consoles and mobile devices near you, it’s extra nice to see it in video form. The Premiere is officially set for next year, putting another nail in the coffin for 2016, quite possibly the worst year on record. Okay, not really, but we’ve had it super rough these past 12 months and we deserve nice, shiny things!
Be sure to check out the official press release below, highlighting the new (and awesome) relationship between Marvel and Telltale:
The energizing blend of humor, emotion, teamwork, and full-on sci-fi action-adventure of the Guardians provides an enormously satisfying space to explore through Telltale’s unique style of interactive storytelling,” said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. “In Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, players will take on multiple roles within the ragtag band of heroes, and take the pilot’s seat in directing their escapades around the universe. We are always honored to be working with the best creative partners and storytellers in entertainment, and working with Marvel on this series leaves us excited to share what we’ve been developing when it premieres in 2017.
With story at the core of everything that Marvel creates, who better to team with than master storytellers Telltale Games,” said Jay Ong, Senior Vice President, Games & Innovation, Marvel Entertainment. “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series fully showcases Marvel and Telltale’s rich legacy of storytelling, and fans will find themselves immersed in an original, character-driven narrative. As part of our strategy to establish a new standard for Marvel games, this is certainly among the great titles to come.
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.
