New W&G video game episodes on the way

Aardman strikes deal with Telltale for new series based on classic characters.

Interactive episodic entertainment firm Telltale is developing a new series based on Aardman's Wallace & Gromit.

Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventure will combine the qualities that the inventor and his canine sidekick are best known for, with the critically acclaimed writing, gameplay and unique TV-style format of Telltale.

Assuming the roles of both Wallace and Gromit, players will spend each episode exploring a vivid world, assembling contraptions and getting the duo out of the sticky situations they find themselves in.

The new trailer, artwork and additional information can be found by clicking here.

"Wallace and Gromit are much-loved characters with cross generational appeal who will work perfectly in this kind of game-playing environment," said Aardman's head of marketing and licensing, Sean Clarke.

Telltale's CEO and co-founder Dan Connors added: "Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures extends our vision for delivering new kinds of entertainment to everyone who enjoys a good story."

The series will debut on WiiWare and PC shortly.
