Groot news: Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy trailer


The Guardians of the Galaxy [official site] adventure that Telltale are tale-telling has revealed itself to us in the form of a trailer for the opening episode, due to come out this April. All the boyos and girlos are there. Starman, Racoon King, Treebeard, Woman Who Is Green, and everyone's favourite source of taking-things-literally humour: Dracks. I'm a big fan of the Guardians. Come and enjoy the trailer with me below.

Japes and antics abound, eh. The first episode is called Tangled Up in Blue and kicks off a story about the Grauniads finding a powerful artifact and needing to keep it from the grasp of big bad universe man, Than Os. In other words, it is almost every comic book you have already read. Why Telltale didn't maroon them on an Earth-tech-level planet and force them to run a nightclub in order to stay alive from day to day, or some other silly concept, I do not know. It would probably not have enough action. Anyway, the cast has previously been announced and includes Nolan North as... Racoon King!? Weird.

The first episode is due out April 18th, with a total of five episodes in the season.
