Universal Pictures has partnered with Telltale Games to create an episodic gaming series based around the Dick Wolf production. Due this fall, the title will see wide distribution, appearing on the PC, Mac, consoles, tablets and mobile devices.
Like the show, the game will have a dual focus: crime solving (consisting of interrogation and criminal investigations) and courtroom drama.
“We’ve always been interested in ‘Law & Order’ because we like the idea of investigations and we like the idea of doing something legal, like the ‘Phoenix Wright’ games,” says Dan Connors, co-founder and CEO of Telltale Games. “It’s a great franchise for the type of games we like to do.”
Telltale is not disclosing specific details about the title at present. The game will feature the show’s main characters, including Alfred Molina’s Det. Ricardo Morales and Terrence Howard’s D.A. Joe Decker – though it’s still uncertain if players will portray them or new characters who work and interact with them in their offices. Actors from the show have not yet committed to doing voice work for the title, but Telltale hints it is in talks.
