Back to the Future: The Game

System: Wii Release date: 04/05/2012

Great Scott! The year is 1985, six months after Marty McFly came back to the future from defeating outlaw Buford Tannen in 1885, and the DeLorean Time Machine has appeared in Hill Valley - minus its owner: Emmett 'Doc' Brown! Now it's up to Marty to travel to 1931 and enlist the help of a reluctant teenage version of Doc in order to rescue his friend's future self!

Back to the Future: The Game picks up shortly after the events of the third Back to the Future film and offers a cinematic adventure in the signature style of Telltale Games. Players guide Marty through richly-detailed environments by pointing the Wii Remote at the screen, interacting with many familiar characters - as well as some all-new faces - and searching every inch for clues and tools that will help them get closer to solving Doc's predicament.

Fans of the Back to the Future films can expect an authentic experience, as writer and producer Bob Gale was brought on board to assist in crafting the game's plot. Several of the movies' original cast members return to reprise their roles, including Christopher Lloyd as ‘Doc’ Brown, Claudia Wells as Jennifer Parker and Michael J. Fox in a cameo that marks his return to the franchise that helped propel him to fame.

So what are you waiting for, McFly? Make sure the flux capacitor is functioning, hop in the DeLorean and save Doc... Just take care not to accidentally erase the future!

  • A grand adventure by Telltale Games, set six months after the events of Back to the Future Part III.
  • Point the Wii Remote to guide Marty McFly through rich, interactive environments full of references to the movies.
  • A complete plot, experienced in 5 episodes and co-written by Bob Gale, writer and producer of the Back to the Future movies.
  • Voice acting performances by Back to the Future stars Christopher Lloyd, Claudia Wells and Michael J. Fox in a special cameo!
