Telltale Games announced today that their amazing series MineCraft Story Mode will be coming to WiiU this week.
This is great news for Nintendo fans around the world that share our feeling that the Nintendo world is all but too quiet and forgotten right now. We are all excited for news about the NX but in the meantime let’s still give it up for the WiiU and recognize it for the unique system that it is.
Now this WiiU release is slow in coming but it is finally here. The series titled ‘The Order of the Stone,’ will be available in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U in North America and Europe for $4.99 or equivalent. Telltale will also be bringing additional episodes to the console in the coming weeks, with a Season Pass option for $19.99 that will allow access to episodes 2 through 5 as they become available for download.
The future release dates of each episode was not yet revealed but this is a very promising move by TellTale Games.
“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.
