A representative for Telltale Games has told GameSpot that they’d like to bring more games to the Nintendo Switch. According to them, the platform is “perfect for what we do”. Meaning that other Telltale games will most likely be coming to the platform in the future.
Telltale’s first Nintendo Switch game will be Minecraft: Story Mode Season 1. The game is due to release later this year however, it doesn’t currently have a release date. According to Amazon, it will be releasing sometime in August but thus has not been confirmed and is likely to change.
Telltale head of communications Job Stauffer had an interview with GameSpot. During the interview they discuss the future of Telltale on the Nintendo Switch.
While they haven’t announced Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2 for the Switch just yet, they’re hopeful this will happen. According to Stauffer, Telltale are “big fans” for the new console. The Switch could be the “perfect” home for Telltale games and it’s “perfect for what we do”. He reminds everyone that Telltale games are available on mobile platforms in addition to consoles without any major gameplay changes. So a “mobile console is pretty awesome” and would suit what they do exactly.
This isn’t the first time that Telltale has talked about expanding their range however. The developer has talked about the possibility of releasing their games on services such as Netflix in the past. However, it’s currently uncertain if the developer will go ahead with this.
Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2 will be releasing later this month for PC, Xbox One, PS4 and mobile devices. Telltale has also confirmed that they’re working on an original IP however, they haven’t released any details on this new game.
It looks as though this will be a very exciting few months for Telltale with new games in the works and the possibility of a Switch release for their games.
