    Not much is known about it yet, but a Back to the Future game is currently being developed by Telltale Games. The game story is being written by Bob Gale, screenplay writer for the three original movies. In addition to this, Christopher Lloyd is going to be lending his voice for his character in the game, Doctor Emmett Brown (no other voices confirmed yet). The game is currently confirmed as an episodic release, to be released in 5 separate episodes on the download services Xbox Live, Playstation Network, and even PC's. No word on other systems yet, or if there will be any. Telltale has developed the Sam and Max games recently, and they've been released on Wii, so that's a possibility. So all the details we know-
    - includes the likenesses of Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd
    - Christopher Lloyd will provide his voice
    - Bob Gale, screenplay writer for the 3 films, is working with Telltale
    - 5 planned episodes
    - DeLorean appearance confirmed
    - Hill Valley location confirmed
    - includes the 1985 time period
    - additional characters from the movies will make appearances [/p]

    Do we really need confirmation on those things ?
    That is like doing a Terminator game and confirming "There will be robots from the future trying to kill you"

    I hope MJF can do some voices, wont be the same without him. Telltale can do some great titles but I hope that if it hits the Wii that its the full retail packaged, size limits messed up Monkey Island for us.

    They're going to have to hire Soup2Nuts to do the animation for Marty.

    I heard this news a few weeks ago, I can't wait to see what telltale do with the game. There other games seem to be a lot of fun.

    I sure hope for you this is sarcasm.

    FF5 and FF6 could be remade on DS. Hell, I heard they wanna do it but are running in some complications. I mean, why remake III and IV and no keeping remaking V and VI. Hell, V and VI are much better than SaGa 3 and even FF3/FF4. Hell, FF6 is probably the best one next to FF7.

    FF6 was remade, or rather ported, to the GBA.

    And FF7 sucked compared to FF9.

    Watching the trilogy in honor of this.

    I doubt that I'll ever play the games, but this is a great excuse for me to watch them anyway.

    Now I feel compelled to make a petition for Tale of Tales to make a game for a bunch of consoles/handhelds.
