The lights are on
Last month, Telltale officially announced that it was working on a game based on Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. If a retailer listing is to be believed, we may have a few tiny slivers of additional information on what to expect, too.
According to a GameStop product listing for the game (Game Informer's parent company), it's an all-new story. You'd be forgiven for saying that it sounds fairly familiar – at least in the broad strokes that are listed:
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series delivers a brand new story of the universe's unlikeliest heroes, the rag-tag band of outlaws who go by the names Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot. In the wake of an epic battle, the Guardians discover an artifact of unspeakable power. Each of the Guardians has a reason to desire this relic, as does a ruthless enemy who is the last of her kind, and who will stop at nothing to tear it from their hands. From Earth to the Milano to Knowhere and beyond, and set to the beat of awesome music, this five-part episodic series puts you in the rocket-powered boots of Star-Lord in an original Guardians adventure, told in the unique and award-winning Telltale style, where your decisions and actions will drive the path of the story you experience.
It ain't much, admittedly, but there it is.

Our TakeThis one lives and dies by how much access they get to the cast of the films – their likenesses as well as their vocal talents. Hopefully we'll learn more about that aspect of the game soon.
