VIDEO GAME NEWS: Deep Silver Risen 2 and Back to the Future
The phenomenally popular Back to the Future films literally changed the future of the adventure movie genre. Now, Telltale has developed a graphic adventure game that tells a fresh new time-travelling story where players will meet all the familiar characters that they’ve grown so fond of.
Back to the Future : The Game brings the iconic 'Marty McFly', 'Doc Brown' and the DeLorean Time Machine together in a completely new cinematic adventure. Six months after the events of the third film, the DeLorean Time Machine mysteriously returns to Hill Valley. 'Marty' must go back in time and recruit aid from a resistant teenage 'Emmett Brown', or else the space-time continuum will be forever unraveled.
Back to the Future : The Game features the likenesses of the original stars that made the characters of 'Marty McFly' and 'Doc Brown' legendary: Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd. Lloyd is voicing 'Doc Brown' in the English version.
The Game will be released by Deep Silver for the following formats:
