Telltale Games is showing off the beta for Minecraft: Story Mode at PAX Prime 2015 this weekend. And as they open the door for attendees to give it a look, the first bit of news surrounding the game has emerged. Minecraft: Story Mode will represent a lot of firsts for the developer and that includes the first chance to select a playable character.
Players will get to select from various appearances of protagonist Jesse. This includes different skin colors and even female variations of the character. Telltale did not make clear whether the voice will change upon switching to a female character... unless lead voice actor Patton Oswalt can pull off an amazing female voice.
(Update: Telltale Games has since informed Shacknews that the lead female character will be voiced by Catherine Taber.)
Minecraft: Story Mode is set to come this fall to the usual Telltale platforms, which includes PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, iOS, and Android. It is also set to hit Wii U at the same time, which not only represents another first for Telltale, but also marks the first official Minecraft game to hit the Nintendo console.

Cool! That will make my Minecraft addicted daughter happy.
Not sure why the voice would need to change just because the model they select happens to wear female clothes. And here I was thinking shacknews.com was a progressive web site.
