Check out this exclusive trailer for the video game BACK TO THE FUTURE: THE ADVENTURE SERIES courtesy of Gametrailers.com. This game is brought to us by the developer Telltale games who has recently gained the rights to develop games for the BACK TO THE FUTURE and JURASSIC PARK franchises. These BACK TO THE FUTURE “adventures” will not come out as a retail disc (at least for now) but will instead be compromised of 5 downloadable “episodes” that you will need to pay for and download on your system/device of choice. So far the game has been announced for PC, MAC, iPAD, and PS3 (no X-Box 360 yet). Once the first episode is released, they will come out on a monthly basis. No mention yet on when any JURASSIC PARK “adventures” will come out.
One of the cool things about this game is that Michael J. Fox (Marty McFly) and Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown) are allowing their likenesses to be used for their characters. While the game is highly stylized, their charm and energy still shines through. Also, Lloyd will be back to voice his character, but unfortunately Fox will not. However, the studio has found a wonderful voice actor by the name of AJ Locascio who does an amazing job replicating the voice of the young Marty McFly. The voice is very impressive and most will not even know it is not Fox unless told. The game will continue the story where the third movie left off and begins with the famous DeLorean returning to Marty McFly empty! Check out the latest trailer below and have a look for yourself.
The first episode of BACK TO THE FUTURE has a release window for Q4 2010 so expect it very soon.
