Fantastic news, guys. The folks over at Telltale are creating another new series of games based on a popular multi-media brand -- a brand with proven staying power, a brand that deals with hard issues with aplomb, a brand led by the visionary Dick Wolf. That’s right. Telltale has announced that it’s partnering with NBC Universal to put out some Law and Order: Los Angeles video games in 2011 for the PC, Macintosh, consoles, and of course, mobile platforms.
Who needs the next Monkey Island [$6.99] episode when this is in the pipe, right?
Not much in the way of detail is available at the moment, but PR has advised press that the game will focus heavily on interrogation and investigations. Also, courtroom drama has been confirmed. Again, I remind you, DICK WOLF.
“Law and Order: LA fits very well with the style of episodic entertainment experiences Telltale has been building since our very first days,” said Telltale co-founder and CEO Dan Connors in a fancy statement. “The talents and skills that we’ve been building at Telltale are ideally suited for the structure and storytelling approach of televised procedurals like Law and Order.”
