Nintendo Switch May Get More Telltale Games After Minecraft
This makes sense, Telltale is on everything.
Telltale Games makes games on a lot of platforms. Currently, The Walking Dead: Season One alone is on Android, iOS, Kindle Fire, OS X, Linux, Windows, Ouya, PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Telltale is about to release Minecraft: Story Mode on Nintendo Switch, adding the Switch to its massive number of consoles. But it sounds like Minecraft isn't the last game they put on the Nintendo console.
Telltale's head of communications Job Stauffer tells GameSpot their opinion of the Nintendo Switch.
"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.
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. 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."
Telltale seems to be the master of ports, as seen by their epic roster of consoles above. The move to Switch makes a lot of sense, considering how easy it is to pick up and play the console, and how bite sized Telltale games are cut into. It seems like a perfect match we're surprised we haven't thought about sooner.
The release date for Minecraft: Story Mode on Switch hasn't been announced yet, but the development is quite far along. There is also talk of a new IP from Telltale that may make it to the Switch as well.
The Switch version of Season 1 may not be revealed yet, but Minecraft Story Mode Season 2 premieres in July for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac and mobile.
