Minecraft: Story Mode will be a narrative-driven episodic video game all set in the world of Minecraft.

Set in the world of Minecraft, the game series introduces new characters and familiar themes, but is an entirely original Minecraft experience inspired by the game that continues to inspire a generation. 

Telltale's game series will mix new characters with familiar themes, in an entirely original Minecraft experience.

Players will control protagonist Jesse throughout the season, as portrayed by actor Patton Oswalt. Jesse and his group of friends revere the legendary Order of the Stone; four adventurers who slayed an Ender Dragon. The Order are the very best at what they do: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect. While at EnderCon, Jesse and his friends discover that something is wrong... something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and they must set out on a journey to find The Order of the Stone if they are to save their world from oblivion.

The season will feature Patton Oswalt as male Jesse, Catherine Taber as female Jesse, Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West, and Paul Reubens. Look for further casting details to come!

The game will feature off-TV play and mirroring, so players can continue the story on the Wii U GamePad controller, as well as seamlessly integrated touch-control options that allow players to use the joysticks and buttons or simply tap and guide the story directly on the screen at any time.

"Telltale Games is synonymous with quality gaming and compelling content," said Steve Singer, VP of Publisher & Developer Relations at Nintendo of America Inc. "We are thrilled that Nintendo fans will have the opportunity to experience this first-hand with the debut of 'Minecraft: Story Mode' on 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.
