Nintendo Switch Could Get More Of Telltale's Games After Minecraft

"We love the platform. It's kind of perfect for what we do."

5 Comments

Telltale Games' first Nintendo Switch game will be Minecraft: Story Mode Season 1 at some point in the future. But could the company bring more of its titles to the system? It sure sounds like it, according to Telltale Head of Creative Communications Job Stauffer.

Minecraft: Story Mode Season 1 is heading to Switch, and it looks like Season 2 and more of Telltale's franchises could show up on the hybrid console in due time.

"We haven't quite announced [Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2 for Switch] but we certainly hope to continue things on that platform; we're big fans," Stauffer said.

He went on to talk about why the Switch could be the "perfect" home for Telltale's games. "It wouldn't be unheard if more of our series also made it to Switch; we love the platform. It's kind of perfect for what we do," he said. "All of our games are the same on mobile as they are on consoles. And for a mobile console [like the Switch] it's pretty awesome."

A release date for Minecraft: Story Mode Season 1 on Switch has not been announced as of yet. As for the other Telltale titles that could come to Switch, the developer has a big library of high-profile episodic franchises. Some of these include seasons of Game of Thrones, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Walking Dead, Batman, and The Wolf Among Us.

There is also the possibility that Telltale could bring its mysterious new IP to Switch. Intriguingly, Telltale has also said it is thinking about releasing on games beyond console, mobile, and PC, so it appears Switch may not be the only new platform it's developing for.

Minecraft Story Mode Season 2 premieres in July for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and mobile devices.

Umm yay? Price hiking a telltale season that you can get on a cell phone doesn't sound exciting. You can't use the excuse of portable play for an extra 10 to 20 dollars. Give me a Phoenix Wright.

If they can run on phones, they can run on Switch.

I don't see any reason why they couldn't be made/ported over to the Switch. I'm sure fans of Nintendo's latest console wouldn't be opposed to having the option of experiencing games like The Walking Dead series or possibly "older" titles like The Wolf Among Us. Heck, you never know. Perhaps we may see a Telltale Mario game sometime down the road (as unlikely as that is.).

Nice. More toaster oriented games coming to Switch. How appropriate.
