Telltale Games' episodic Back to the Future: The Game will be released for PC, PlayStation 3 and Wii in Europe during the first quarter of 2012.
Originally launched in five downloadable chapters, publisher Deep Silver has confirmed the entire game will arrive on European shores in disc-based form.
PS3 and Wii versions will launch across Europe, while boxed PC editions will only hit "some" territories, Nintendo Life reports.
Telltale Games adventure Back to the Future: The Game is free for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
Just in time for finale's launch.
A number of publishers have recently proclaimed that the traditional movie tie-in's days are numbered. Not only do they routinely getting a critical shoeing but people just aren't buying them anymore.
How Telltale got Jennifer.
Episode two of the Back to the Future series is due out on the European PlayStation Network "soon", Telltale has said.
If you added up all the downloadable games across Steam, XBLA, PSN, Minis, WiiWare, DSiWare and even the foolishly overlooked Xbox Indie Games Channel, how many games have been released to date? 4000? More?
Whatever the actual figure is, perhaps it's strange that so few of these games have been bundled up for retail release. Microsoft issued an XBLA showcase compilation a few years back, and PopCap is getting in on the act right now with two four-game volumes on Xbox 360. But apart from those, who else is bothering?
The point is, while it's easy to grasp the motivation for keeping literally thousands of titles locked onto a download service at the same price for years on end (money money money!), a large proportion of the potential audience presumably remains unaware of the cheap gems out there.
The second episode of Telltale Games' Back to the Future series is out now – but if you want it, you have to buy the full five episode series.
The first chunk of Telltale Games' episodic Back to the Future tie-in will arrive on the US PlayStation Network on 15th February, the developer has announced.
Touch of Evil may be the classy choice, but for me, the first moments of Back to the Future offer the greatest opening shot of any movie ever made. The magical twinkles of sound that accompany the date and time – date and time! First thing you see! – appearing on screen, followed by the steady, comforting chittering of dozens of pendulums and cogs, and then the fade up and the pan past that endless array of time-pieces.
There's an awful lot going on in that tracking shot in terms of exposition – the news report on the telly, Marty's skateboard thudding against the plutonium crate, the mad-scientist dog food dispenser – but there's even more at work in terms of theme, and in terms of foreshadowing. Look closely, and you'll see a 1950s jukebox nestled in amongst the junk of the cluttered lab. Look even closer and you'll see a hint towards the very end of the film: one of the doc's many clocks has a tiny human figure hanging from the hands.
The opening of Telltale's Back to the Future game is similarly packed with information. While the first episode of five will ultimately whisk Marty and the DeLorean back into the past on a new adventure to save the Doc, it starts with a reverent reworking of one of the first movie's greatest scenes: night has fallen on the glittering rain-slicked tarmac of – at this point – Twin Pines Mall, and an unwitting dog named Einstein is about to make fictional scientific history.
The first chapter in Telltale Games' Back to the Future will launch on PC and Mac on Wednesday 22nd December.
Episodic series starting this December.
Telltale won't be releasing the episodic Back to the Future series on Wii for the time being.
Dev speaks on new episodic story.

Telltale Games' episodic adaptation of Back to the Future will begin either in late October or early November. Better still, the games will star none other than Christopher Lloyd - the actor who brought Doc to life.
