Guardians of the Galaxy the latest franchise to get the Telltale treatment.

2017 is shaping up to be a banner year for fans of Star-Lord, Rocket and the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Telltale has announced Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, a five-part episodic series of games to be released on Android, as well as PC, console, and iOS in early 2017. Check out the preview trailer:

As with previous Telltale series, episodes will be released periodically and bought individually or all together with a season pass. Previous franchises that Telltale has tackled include Batman, Minecraft, The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. This is their first attempt at developing a game for a Marvel property.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy was a surprise late-summer hit in 2015, with a sequel due to hit screens next spring. While nothing is currently know about the story or the release schedule for the Telltale episodes, logically it would make sense to expect the first episode to launch in early 2017, to build hype leading up to the film's release in early May.
