The cool video game news came early this week. Thanks to a leaked photo, the secret TellTale Marvel project may have been revealed. It seems the game will be based on the Guardians of the Galaxy characters. Below is the picture of the leaked information:
As you can see, it's highlighted with the third season of The Walking Dead game and under the licensed company that TellTale works under. All the signs seem to point towards us getting a Guardian of the Galaxy TellTale game. I have some quick thoughts on that that I would like to share.
First off, I love this idea!! This band of characters is gold for a company like TellTale. The way that TellTale can write storylines for games, is the exact reason why the Guardians are a perfect fit. With that said, personally, I would have liked to see a game based off the Defenders or at least Daredevil. I was hoping for something like that, but like I said, I am completely in love with the idea of us getting a Guardians video game.
TellTale is killing it with the current Batman game. They have put a whole new spin on Batman that I thought I would never see. So, I am quite intrigued with what they would do with a less established series like the Guardians. I'm sure the question will be asked, “how close to the movies will it compare?” if the current Batman story is any indication, not close at all.
Lastly, I think the release date is pretty important here. I want this to be on the Nintendo Switch. I'm not sure if that is something that can or will happen, but I have enjoyed the TellTale games I’ve played. What better way for me to enjoy it, than on the go. That way I could download it while I am out during the day, and start to play it on my down time. That way I won't have to wait till late at night to jump into the game.
Months ago, I was extremely excited to hear that Marvel had partnered with TellTale. Now we may be getting an idea of what that video game may be. If this leak is true, then it may be my favorite leak to date. Oh, and we better get some Baby Groot, damn it!!
