At their panel at PAX East 2017, Bill Rosemann from Marvel Games joined Telltale Games to give some details on the story of the upcoming Guardians of The Galaxy game. They restated the fact that the game will not be bound to any sort of canon, and will tell an original story.
While it will be original, the game will also include a ton of easter eggs, according to Telltale, from the movie, animated series, and the comics. When asked about other Marvel characters, they said that while the main team will be the focal characters of the game, there will be a familiar female character from the Marvel roster that fans will know. They wouldn’t say who, but they did say she is a more recent addition.
Previous to PAX, Telltale revealed the voice cast for the game, which is star-studded, including Nolan North as everyone’s favorite snarky raccoon, Rocket. For more on that, check here.
