Minecraft: Story Mode will begin rolling out this week, with the first episode “The Order of the Stone,” launching this Thursday, according to developers Telltale Games and Mojang.
Episode One will be released in the Nintendo eShop for $4.99 in North America and the European equivalent. The subsequent chapters will launch “in the coming weeks,” according to a Telltale press release. Wii U owners will also eventually have the option of buying a season pass for episodes two through five for $19.99.
“Working with Nintendo, we’re tremendously excited to be bringing our unique style of storytelling to Wii U for the first time, and we couldn’t be happier to be kicking things off with a series like Minecraft: Story Mode that allows players of all ages to craft their own adventure across the Minecraft universe.”
