Way back last year we broke the news that Back to the Future would not make it to WiiWare, but Telltale has just announced an agreement with Nintendo of America that will see the series reach Wii after all.
Back to the Future: The Game will contain all the episodes available digitally on other platforms, and will see release on Wii in October for $19.99. It's the first in a series of releases from Telltale that will hopefully see upcoming dino romp Jurassic Park reach the console as well.
Are you pleased the series is finally coming to Wii or are you all DeLoreaned out after its appearances on PC and PS3?
