Telltale are rather busy these days, and Minecraft: Story Mode definitely has the most potential reach of all of their works. With that in mind, they’ve released a new trailer and cast details for their upcoming take on the popular, block-building phenomenon.
The trailer shows a short snippet of what we can expect from the game, as the legendary heroes of the Order of the Stone journeyed to face the Ender Dragon, followed by a switch to ‘present’ time, wherein you take control of a character called ‘Jesse’ (male or female), attending EnderCon with your friends. Intending to meet Gabriel the Warrior, one of their revered heroes, Jesse and friends witness horror unleashed on their world, and their only hope is to track down The Order of the Stone.
The cast has also been revealed in this break-out of news, noting the following:
- Patton Oswalt as male Jesse
- Catherine Taber as female Jesse
- Brian Posehn as Axel
- Ashley Johnson as Petra
- Scott Porter as Lukas
- Martha Plimpton as Olivia

Minecraft: Story Mode’s first episode will debut digitally on the 13th October 2015, and as a physical “Season Pass” edition on the 27th October 2015 for North America, and 30th October 2015 for Europe.
