Telltale Games Partner With Marvel
Yes, you read that correctly, Marvel Entertainment have struck a deal with Telltale Games.
Telltale will produce a console and PC game based on a yet-unknown Marvel property to be released in 2017. Details are scarce - the partnership was just announced today - but Executive Producer Jones said "We've been busy. It takes a long time to find the right partner. We have one special game we're excited about."
So only one game has been mentioned thus far but it's safe to assume there could be more if it's a success. Telltale have cited "authenticity" as a primary goal for the game, along with finding the "right hero" with the "right powers." It's difficult to say which character Telltale could adopt, and whether or not it will be one we've seen in the Marvel Universe already, be it in movies or Netflix.
However, Marvel has a deep well of great characters that could be used in one of Telltale's episodic adventures. Maybe we'll finally get that Howard the Duck game.
What a world we live in.
