The reveal showed off a 47 second long teaser, with a casette tape floating by in space showing off the title of “*RAD MIX*” and Toploader’s “Dancing in the Moodlight” playing over the top – fading in at first, getting louder as the headphones pass shot, then building to a clearer and crisp sound as the title reveals itself.

Marvel and Telltales’s official statement read:

“The energizing blend of humor, emotion, teamwork, and full-on sci-fi action-adventure of the Guardians provides an enormously satisfying space to explore through Telltale’s unique style of interactive storytelling,” said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. “In Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, players will take on multiple roles within the ragtag band of heroes, and take the pilot’s seat in directing their escapades around the universe.
