“Back to the Future” returning in video games
Telltale Games will release a new game series this winter celebrating the 25th anniversary of “Back to the Future.”
The games, based on the time-travel adventure film, will feature the likenesses of the original stars that portrayed Marty McFly and Doc Brown: Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd.
Lloyd will voice Doc Brown for the full game series, which will be delivered in five monthly episodes.The game series is developed through a licensing agreement with Universal Partnerships & Licensing.
“Creating cinematic adventures true to the source is a top mission for Telltale,” said Telltale CEO Dan Connors in a news release. “Securing Marty and Doc for the games, and presenting the experience that fans know and love, has been top on our list since we initiated development.”
Co-creator and writer Bob Gale is consulting with Telltale on the characterizations and storyline for the game.
“Twenty-five years ago when I wrote Doc Brown’s line about ‘seeing the future,’ little did I realize that I would be traveling with him to work on this game,” Gale said in a news release. “Collaborating with Telltale is an amazing opportunity to continue the adventures of Doc and Marty.”
Telltale announced that the games will feature the DeLorean Time Machine. An authentic replica of the vehicle will be on display this weekend at the 2010 Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle Washington, September 3 through 5.
