The Minecraft: Story Mode saga will get underway this week on Nintendo Wii U with the release of the first episode, The Order of the Stone.
The first episode in the adventure from Telltale Games will be available from the Nintendo eShop on Wii U on January 21st. Each episode costs $4.99 or the equivalent thereof, while a Season Pass is also available for $19.99.
Minecraft: Story Mode utilises the unique features of the Wii U’s GamePad controller, enabling off-play TV and mirroring, as well as integrated touch-control options that allow players to use the joysticks and buttons or tap the screen.
This will be the first Telltale title to make its way to Wii U. "Working with Nintendo, we're tremendously excited to be bringing our unique style of storytelling to Wii U for the first time, and we couldn't be happier to be kicking things off with a series like 'Minecraft: Story Mode' that allows players of all ages to craft their own adventure across the Minecraft universe," said Kevin Bruner, CEO and Co-Founder of Telltale Games.
Minecraft: Story Mode features an incredible cast that includes Patton Oswalt, Catherine Taber, Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West, John Hodgman, and Paul Reubens.
