Back in July of this year, Telltale Games held a Nintendo Direct-style video informing fans of upcoming projects that are coming from the studio. GamesIndustry recently got to interview them where it was revealed that they “took a queue from Nintendo” and decided on the same strategy to update their audience. They also took the chance to reiterate their support for Nintendo’s latest console. Take a look at the quotes below and you can read the interview in its entirety here.
“We took a queue from Nintendo,” explains Stauffer. “Now that we have so many fans, coming from all directions; whether they’re fans of Batman or Borderlands but never heard of Wolf Among Us, or fans of Guardians [of the Galaxy] but just not really into Walking Dead yet.
“It’s interesting to have all these fans from all these universes coming together at one point. So if we have our own sort of Nintendo Direct-style summer update, it is exciting because these fans get to hear about everything else that they aren’t really aware of. ”
“For us, making games that play the same on console as they do on mobile and iPad, and having a console that is the seamless transition between both, is perfect for us. Minecraft Story Mode is our first game on Switch, but definitely not our last. We’re looking at Batman and at Guardians, and more Minecraft. And probably a couple more. No dates at this point, but we love the platform.”
