Sierra Games and The Odd Gentlemen are still toiling away at King’s Quest, but they’re ready to give the game’s expansive voice cast the spotlight in a new behind-the-scenes trailer.
Back to the Future‘s Christopher Lloyd steals the show as Old King Graham, but its Josh Keaton (best known as the voice of Spider-Man in The Spectacular Spider-Man, Spider-Man: Edge of Time, and Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions) as Young King Graham that players will get to know the most. As the main character of the game, he’ll interact with all the other characters including Tom Kenny (Adventure Time) as the wily Merchant of Miracles, Zelda Williams (The Legend of Korra) as “no-nonsense blacksmith” Amaya Blackstone, Wallace Shawn (The Princess Bride) as “clever” Manny, and Maggie Elizabeth Jones (We Bought A Zoo) as Gwendolyn, the King’s granddaughter.
According to the Activision Games Blog, the remainder of the cast will include Michael Benyaer, Loretta Devine, Gideon Emery, Jean Gilpin, Michael Gough, Andy Pessoa, Kevin Michael Richardson, Kath Soucie, Fred Tatasciore, Richard White, and Michael-Leon Wooley.
The first episode of the King’s Quest reboot will be available “later this year” for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
