After Nintendo Switch ports for Telltale Games’s Batman and Guardians of the Galaxy surfaced on online retailers earlier this year, a company representative recently confirmed the rumors.
Speaking to Rocket Beans TV at Gamescom 2017, Telltale Games creative head Job Stauffer acknowledged that “more Telltale titles are coming to Switch.” “I think you can expect to see some other titles like Batman and the Guardians of the Galaxy. We have [Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2] in the future. We don’t have dates yet, but yeah we are big fans of the platform.”
Stauffer said the studio takes prides in having mobile ports with the same experience on consoles, making Nintendo Switch ports a “natural” fit for the studio’s direction. “It just feels natural on Switch and we love it,” said Stauffer. In retrospect, all of Telltale’s narrative-driven, point-and-click games were released on nearly all available consoles and mobile devices.
At present, Nintendo Switch lacks any Telltale titles, with the platform set to receive its first game from the developer on August 22 with Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure. Priced at USD$39.99, this version contains all main episodes and DLC of the first season.
Since Telltale Games’s success with The Walking Dead game series, the studio has soared to fame and has worked on big IPs such as Borderlands and Game of Thrones. The studio is currently working on The Walking Dead: The Final Season and The Wolf Among Us Season 2, both scheduled to launch in 2018.
