Telltale Games just blasted out a press release on the upcoming Back to the Future: The Game with some surprising news: It will also be coming to the iPad. Release dates are still up in the air, and I already can hardly wait. Telltale has an awesome resume of games available on other platforms, and has released Puzzle Agent [$4.99] for the iPhone as well as Wallace & Gromit: The Last Resort [$4.99], Sam & Max Episode 1: The Penal Zone [$4.99] and Puzzle Agent HD [$6.99] for the iPad.

Not a whole lot is known about Back to the Future: The Game aside from a few videos posted on the Telltale site. It's going to be a point and click adventure game written with the assistance of Bob Gale, the screenwriter of the original three movies. Christopher Lloyd is voicing Doc Brown, and the game is said to take place six months after the events of Back to the Future Part 3.

I wish we had more details, but in the meantime, check out the Gaker's list of 13 Things from Back to the Future II That Actually Came True, and 5 That Haven't... Yet if you're looking for a laugh.

    Here's hoping it'll be decent, unlike the vast majority of movie based games!

    strange?

    Well yea! Back to the Future is awesome! But, what kind of game can we hope for in 2010 for a movie that was popular in the 80s? I hope it's a winner, but I'm not holding my breath.

    I love the movies, but no real M J Fox? That's a shame, no matter how "real" the other guy sounds. And I am not sure about the graphic style either. I would have rather had a more photo realistic style. Well I'll buy it any way since I am a huge fan.

      Are you aware of M J Fox's medical condition?

        Michael J. Fox is not doing the voice for the Back To The Future game.
        Because he has Parkinsons.

        (I'll get my coat)

        Yes, early onset Parkinson's to be precise.

      • E_Domina

        he can play hockey pretty good though. even with parkinsons

      did you actually watch the second video with the voice actor? i couldn't believe how perfect he sounded. almost eerie.

  • Face Tattoos are a good idea

    My balls just dropped a second time...psyched.

    This is amazing. And yes that guy's Marty McFly impression is perfect. He probably sounds more like him than Fox would trying to do the voice today.

    Toughest decision for me is going to be which platform? Do I want to play it on my iPad, my Mac, or my PS3? Hmmm...

  • Koushi_inaba

    Yes I heard the guy and he may be as close as possible but nothing beats the original.
    And please guys, MJs Parkinson doesn't stop him from doing voice overs. He actually acts again, e.g. Scrubs among other things and he just did a 25th anniversary Bttf trailer. Nice try guys, look it up on YouTube. It's all about the money.

    As a long time fan of the series I couldn't be more pumped about this game.

    Also AJ, the guy doing the voice of Michael, is unbelievable. Also he seems to have grown up on the series, much like I did, so I give him ultra mad props for landing such a cool gig.

    First day purchase no matter what.

    I was looking forward to this until I read point and click:-(

    Cool! I wish they'd open up Apple TV for Apps soon so we could play this on a TV!
