Mojang and Telltale Games unveiled the debut trailer for Minecraft: Story Mode during Minecon 2015.
The game tells the story of Jesse (voiced by Patton Oswald) and his group of friends as they set out on a journey to find The Order of the Stone?a group of four adventurers who slayed an Ender Dragon. Jesse’s group consists of the best Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect in the world of Minecraft.
Other confirmed voice actors include Ashley Johnson, Paul Reubens, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Scott Porter, Brian Posehn, and Billy West.
“We’ve worked closely with the amazing team at Mojang to ensure this story is a natural fit for the Minecraft world fans already know and love,” said Kevin Bruner, CEO and co-founder of Telltale Games.
“As Jesse, players will steer their own path through a tale of adventure and survival; all brought to life by an all-star cast. Through Telltale’s choice-based gameplay and a story spanning from the Nether to the Farlands, the End, and beyond, we can’t wait for fans to experience this new take on the beloved world of Minecraft.”
“The interactive storytellers at Telltale are giving players the chance to explore their own unique interpretation of the Minecraft universe,” added Mojang chief word officer Owen Hill. “They’ve crafted a story that follows the logic of Minecraft, but still manages to feel original. It’s actually pretty funny too. And the pig is adorable.”
Minecraft: Story Mode is coming to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android later this year.
