Minecraft: Story Mode could be out soon according to Amazon release details

Minecraft: Story Mode
Revealed this summer at Minecon 2015, Minecraft: Story Mode is as unlikely a premise for a story-driven adventure game as you could imagine, but it also gives developer Telltale Games a creative freedom it hasn’t had until now. A holiday 2015 release date for the game would have been an easy guess, but it seems that it may be out even sooner.

Amazon listings for Minecraft: Story Mode have appeared, pointing to a possible release of the game next month. The listings for the Xbox One version of the game point to an October 27 release date in the U.S., followed by an October 30 release date in the U.K. At the time of this writing, Telltale has yet to announce an official release date for the game, though the company has said that the game would come out this fall.

Telltale recently announced that Minecraft: Story Mode would be the first game it has developed to feature a player-selectable main character with a customizable appearance. Previous games from the developer have featured plenty of playable characters, but these were playable at different points in the story, not whenever the player chose.

“We’ve worked closely with the amazing team at Mojang to ensure this story is a natural fit for the Minecraft world fans already know and love,” Telltale CEO Kevin Bruner said when the game was announced. “As Jesse, players will steer their own path through a tale of adventure and survival; all brought to life by an all-star cast.”

Bruner wasn’t exaggerating about the cast. The game will feature Patton Oswalt as male Jesse and Catherine Taber as female Jesse, plus voice acting from Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West, and Paul Reubens, among others.

While Minecraft: Story Mode will also be available via digital download, the physical version of the game will feature the first episode on disc, granting access to the other four episodes once they’re released. Those with a console that isn’t connected to the Internet will be out of luck.

In addition to the Xbox One, Minecraft: Story Mode is also planned for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Wii U, PC/Mac, iOS and Android. Whether the game will arrive on all these platforms at the same time hasn’t yet been confirmed.

When the N64 was introduced to the gaming world, people were taken aback by how the graphics came to life compared to NES games and SNES. The concept of "3-D gaming" was entirely new, bringing us closer to the characters and stories we already loved. New Mario games and Pokemon titles became some of the highlights for the system, bringing characters to life in a way we had not seen before. Although not all the games from the N64 could survive the tests of time, there are quite a few that have place in our hearts. In honor of these games we grew up and loved so much, we have compiled a list of all of the best N64 games based on their genre.

If you think you can name all the best N64 games, read on and see how well you do.

Claim these free 3DS and Wii U games before the eShop closes
free 3ds wii u eshop games nintendo and

The eShops on the 3DS and Wii U will shut down on March 27, so players are splurging on great games that they want to pick up in the final days of each storefront's life span. If you can't drop any cash on games for these systems before then though, you're probably wondering what's available from them for free. For the most part, it's demos, as the 3DS and Wii U weren't really known for their free-to-play offerings. Even then, many of the available free-to-play games -- or "free-to-start" titles as Nintendo called them in that era -- won't have much use after the eShops cease game sales because most of their content is gated by microtransactions.

Some might be a little more time-consuming due to in-game timers and other microtransactions, but are still worth checking out regardless. If you're wondering what full games you can play on 3DS and Wii U for free ahead of the eShop storefronts' discontinuation on March 27, we recommend checking out the following six titles.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is among the most critically acclaimed games set in a galaxy far, far away.
