We’ve known that Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy would be removed from any existing canon for a while now. The studio can, and will, do what they please with the property. But with that being said, we have no idea what they’re doing with it. Well, today’s newest trailer has done little to change that.
“Guardians of the Galaxy! Show Me How You Die”
Premiering on April 18th, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series “is a brand new story of the universe’s unlikeliest heroes.” While the trailer doesn’t really tell us much, Telltale’s plot summary gives us a bit more:
“Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is a brand new story of the universe’s unlikeliest heroes: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot. In the wake of an epic battle, the Guardians discover an artifact of unspeakable power. Each of them has a reason to desire this relic, as does a ruthless enemy who is the last of her kind, and who will stop at nothing to tear it from their hands.
From Earth to the Milano to Knowhere and beyond, and set to the beat of awesome music, you wear the rocket-powered boots of Star-Lord in an original Guardians adventure, where your decisions and actions drive the story you experience.”
Thanos is again inferred as the big bad of the series. But seeing as how he’s on display so prominently so early, I’m thinking there are other villains we should be worrying about later on. The trailer does a solid job portraying the team’s witty banter. Which hopefully continues with such an eclectic voice cast. Here’s who is featured:
“Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights, The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series) as Star-Lord, Emily O’Brien (The Young and the Restless, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor) as Gamora, Nolan North (the Uncharted series, Pretty Little Liars) as Rocket, Brandon Paul Eells (Watch Dogs) as Drax, and Adam Harrington (The Wolf Among Us, League of Legends) as Groot. “
It’s not too long now from when we’ll be playing Episode 1: Tangled Up in Blue. Get your mixtapes ready.
