Telltale Games Coming to Wii

In a press release today, Telltale Games announced it has signed a publishing deal to publish content on the Nintendo Wii.  The first game to make it’s appearance on the Wii console will be Telltale Games’ popular Back to the Future: The Game, and you’ll be able to find it at retail shelves in October for $19.99.

While Telltale has developed for the Wii before, in the form of Ubisoft-published CSI games and a few Sam and Max games published by other companies, this will be Telltales opportunity to publish its own content, which is how they usually deliver their non-licensed material.  And allowing them to publish their content on a retail disc, rather than size-limited-Wiiware, will give them more space to work with.

“Securing a publishing agreement with Nintendo of America ensures that we can make our popular content available on every major console platform.  This signing is a significant milestone in our long-term growth strategy, “said Telltale co-founder and CEO, Dan Connors.

With future releases of Jurassic Park: The Game and The Walking Dead, Telltale Games now has another pipe to distribute their upcoming content down, and another way to get interest in their games. With the point-and-click nature of their games, it would seem the Wii would be a great fit.
