Back to the Future: The Game remaster coming with Tom Wilson voicing Biff Tannen

A remaster of Telltale Games' Back to the Future: The Game is coming soon, but best of all, it'll have Tom Wilson voicing the character he plays best, Biff Tannen.

Back to the Future will once again be gracing our consoles and PCs as it’s been confirmed Telltale Games will be releasing a remastered version of its game.

Back to the Future The Game is receiving a special 30th anniversary edition that will feature enhanced graphics and will be available on current-gen consoles and PC. Tom Wilson, the actor who portrayed Biff Tannen, has re-voiced all of his character’s dialog in the game making the experience that much more authentic.

There’s no word yet as to when we can expect the game to be released, but considering the 30th anniversary of the film is coming next month, we wouldn’t be surprised if the remaster of Back to the Future The Game comes in October.

      What's the Shack consensus on this game? BttF is my favorite series of movies ever, and I was excited for TT's games, but for whatever reason I just... missed them. Are they worth playing? I was planning to pick up the originals during a Steam sale, but if the remaster is reasonably priced I might just get that. (I doubt it'll be as "reasonably priced" as TT's games tend to be during Steam sales, though.)

        I love them. I'll probably be picking this up to replay again.

        I hope they have another season planned.

        I didn't love the game when I played it. It starts off well enough but then it felt like the story dragged and re-used the time travel mechanic a little too much. It's more of a cute game with few consequences I think. It's been a while since I played but I don't recall decision making like Telltale's newer games have. I've enjoyed their Walking Dead and Wolf Among Us games.

        I played through them and they were alright. I remember getting stuck a couple times trying to figure out what to do and having to look it up.

        BttF is one of my favorite movie series too and I don't feel like I wasted my time, but I'd never play it again.

        Maybe the remastered version will have better controls and performance. I think that was my main complaint. Navigating the UI was irritating, the mouse cursor was sluggish to track, even on a computer with a lot of power it felt, I dunno, off.

        Worth playing once if you get it on sale. You're not missing out on great content if you skip it all together, either.

        i really liked playing the first episode but for some reason i never started the 2nd episode. i don't know why.

        also i'm suprised that it was released 5 years ago. seems like less time. i think i will stick to the old edition on PC.

        It's a good nostalgia trip. Well written, great voice cast (with a few minor exceptions). The only real negative is that is super easy.

        MBD is right, it's very meh. I love bttf but found it rather boring and not nearly at the quality that the tales of monkey island chapters were.

        Middle of the road game for them.

        It's not very good. If you don't like the first episode just stop. It really doesn't get any better.

        Awful.

        When TT did that poll a few years ago about what game they should do next, I quickly chose BTTF. But the game ended up being pretty mediocre, and just doesn't carry the theme and feel of the movies very well.

        The new Marty was a great impersonator however.

        I enjoyed it, but it could have been better.

        It's a good little adventure game. I remember liking it more than walking dead

      Back in early August I received some information on this game. I was given a release date of October 13th for Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. I assumed it wasn't coming to PlayStation 3 since they had a retail release of the original. Maybe it will hit PSN though for PS3. At the same time I was also given a date of November 17th for the retail release of their Game of Thrones game.

      I'm hoping for PC Owners this is a just an update as I loved this game!

        Same here. The Game was a bit of a stretch anyway but a fun little extra BTTF romp.

      I always thought it was odd that he wasn't in the game. It's not like that guy is off curing cancer or something, he's probably available and not too expensive.

        The story is Tom Wilison told his agent that he wasn't available for / interested in any BTTF fan events. When his agent got the job request from Telltale, the agent assumed it was one of those and never forward the offer to Tom.
