|Law & Order “Dream Team” of Characters Ready to Investigate and Prosecute in Universal App for iPad, iPhone & iPod touch|
Telltale Games, the leading independent publisher and developer of episodic interactive entertainment, and Universal Partnerships & Licensing are proud to announce their 'Law & Order: Legacies' App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is now available on the App Store. Based on NBCUniversal’s Emmy-winning Law & Order TV series, Law & Order: Legacies brings together an all-star cast of investigators and prosecutors from multiple Law & Order franchises.
Law & Order is TV’s top-rated and longest-running crime series consisting of storylines based on real-life crimes set against the distinctive backdrop of different law enforcement units. Law & Order: Legacies will include the likenesses of popular Law & Order investigators including: Lennie Briscoe (Jerry Orbach, Law & Order), Rey Curtis (Benjamin Bratt, Law & Order), Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay, Law & Order: SVU) and Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston, Law & Order) for what can be considered a Law & Order “Dream Team” of detectives and prosecutors.
Fans will feel like they’re playing the TV show, following dramatic twists and turns of criminal investigation, assuming the dual roles of police investigators and district attorneys. They’ll gather evidence and question suspects as police officers, then prosecute the case and cross-examine witnesses as attorneys with innovative court room game play based on moral choice. These moral choices made throughout Law & Order: Legacies lead to multiple endings in each case: conviction, plea bargain or not guilty!
“Law & Order has created some of the biggest character icons of prime time television, and we have the freedom to combine the most popular detectives and district attorneys from multiple franchises into our game,” said Telltale co-founder and CEO Dan Connors. “Telltale’s games are based on story and characters above all else and our model of episodic entertainment is a perfect match for the world of Law & Order.”
“Telltale’s attention to detail and an unmatched love of the source material in the games that they create, combined with the drama of their episodic storytelling, is a combination that Law & Order fans will love," said Bill Kispert, VP & GM, Digital Platforms, Universal Partnerships & Licensing.
The first season of Law & Order: Legacies will consist of seven total episodes to be released over the next few months. The Law & Order: Legacies App is available for $2.99 from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore.
