Sam & Max Season One Hits Wii This Fall

Independent developer Telltale Games has announced that, as previously suggested, the first season of its episodic point-and-click adventure series Sam & Max will arrive on Wii in North America and Europe this fall.

Following the wacky exploits of dog detective Sam and the bunny-thing Max, both of whom are freelance police officers, Telltale's series is based on the work of Steve Purcell, which also inspired LucasArts' adventure Sam & Max Hit the Road (PC) and an animated series in the early 90's.

Consisting of six installments, the episodes of Sam & Max Season One were incrementally released on the PC across late 2006 and early 2007, with the full season hitting store shelves after its conclusion. Telltale has long expressed its interest in bringing the series to Wii.

JoWooD will handle the publishing and distribution of the Wii edition. Much like the retail release of Season One PC, the North American edition of Sam & Max Wii will be published under JoWooD's The Adventure Company brand.

Currently underway, the second season of Sam & Max PC concludes on April 10 with the release of Episode 205: What's New, Beelzebub? (PC).
