    Telltale Games has confirmed that episodic adventure series Back to the Future will be released for iPad.

    Originally announced for consoles and PC but now confirmed as coming to iPad as well.

    Details on gameplay are scarce, but developer Telltale Games has revealed tantalising information on who is working on the high profile project.

    Steven Spielberg is credited as an executive producer on the series, as is screenwriter for the three films Bob Gale. Christopher Lloyd, famous for his memorable depiction of Doc Brown in the Back to the Future movies, is lending his voice to the series.

    Five episodes are planned, though it isn't clear if these will strictly follow the plots laid out by the movies or if they will introduce new stories.

    Currently, there are no plans to release the game for iPhone and iPod touch; however, Telltale Games insists that Back to the Future will be available for iPad "this winter."

    It's clear that they will introduce new stories. The vidocs that Telltate has been posting say that they take place six months after Back to the Future 3 and that Bob Gale is a consultant for the story!

    I have to say... I'm extremely pumped for this! BTTF is seriously one of the most amazing IPs ever, and we all know Telltale rocks.







    P.S. GREAT SCOTT!

    I'm getting to the point where I might break down and buy it on Steam. I wonder what's taking so long?

    Remember, tales of monkey island for ipad took nearly a over a year to release from it's counterpart. Granted, they are really trying to
    Go for a promised time here, but I don't see it happening.

    I have purchased it on computer. But I will definitely hit up the iPad versions upon release. Alan Johnson of Telltale Games has confirmed that EVERY episode will be released on the platform. It will be nice to have portable time travel awesomeness! :) Anyway, it's worth buying it NOW - highly enjoyable and captures the spirit of the original movies quite well. 1930s Hill Valley lacks a bit of the spark of the 2015/1885/1955 versions but the in-jokes, inclusion of Christopher Lloyd/great Michael J Fox sound-alike and the chance to see a continuation of such a beloved series, I would definitely say pick this up on computer now and iPad later.

    I would comment on the game, but I've gotta get back to playing the series on my third-generation iPad.

    You just gotta use the jailbreak hack that lets you play iPad games on your iPhone 5 and iPhone 6. I guess the iPhone 4 was too old for the developer to add compatibility, even though the iPhone 4 could theoretically support first-generation iPad apps.

    Okay, I think the horse is dead. No need to keep beating it. It was mildly funny the first time.
