The most popular game on Fire TV, Minecraft, is being spun-off into a new game called Minecraft: Story Mode and it’ll be coming to the Fire TV when it’s released later this year. Minecraft: Story Mode will be an episodic game, created by Telltale Games, and released in 5 parts. Telltale Games has had great success on the Fire TV with their The Walking Dead games and, more recently, their Game of Thrones game. While Telltale is best known for their television show-based video games, Minecraft: Story Mode won’t be the first time they’ve used a video game as the source of their episodic adaptation. The company’s hit game Tales from the Borderlands, based on the popular video game series Borderlands, has achieved the same success as its television-based counterparts. An exact release date has not been given for Minecraft: Story Mode, but we should see it arrive on the Fire TV, along with other platforms simultaneously, later this year.
