Telltalte Celebrates Wallace & Gromit's 20th Anniversary with an Episodic Gaming Extravaganza

On November 4th All Wallace & Gromit Episodic Games Available On Xbox LIVE Arcade, Telltale Takes Orders for Full Season DVD, Charity Drive Kicks Off

Cracking good news, lad! All Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures episodes will be available on Xbox LIVE Arcade Wednesday, November 4th. The release coincides day and date with the 20th anniversary of the release of A Grand Day Out, Wallace & Gromit’s first animated short.

The episodes - Fright of the Bumblebees, The Last Resort, Muzzled! and The Bogey Man - take the unorthodox inventor and his canine companion through exciting interactive storylines - from a honey business plagued by giant bees, to a whodunit set at a beach resort in Wallace’s cellar, to a tale of triumph over an oily villain's greedy deceit, and concluding with a hardly sub-par finale at the prestigious Prickly Thicket country club.

Telltale will begin taking orders November 4th at www.telltalegames.com for the Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures full season DVD. In addition to all four fun-filled episodes, the DVD will include exclusive image galleries, a “making of” video, and Aardman Animations’ hilarious Cracking Contraption shorts, which profile some of Wallace’s more eccentric inventions.

In honor of the claymation duo’s impressive milestone, Telltale is partnering with the Wallace & Gromit Children’s Foundation in the UK and Penny Arcade’s Child’s Play charity in North America to make a donation in selected regions for every purchase of the full PC season of Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures November 4-8.

Xbox 360-exclusive series features include achievements, HD graphic support, and a custom control scheme adapted specifically for the Xbox 360. Foreign language subtitles will also be available for these episodes in German, French, Italian, and Spanish. Each episode sells for 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE Marketplace.

Stay tuned for even more exciting Wallace & Gromit anniversary announcements from Telltale on November 3rd.
