Minecraft: Story Mode features a first for Telltale — letting you pick your character

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

Telltale Games' episodic adventure based on Mojang's Minecraft will let players choose their own version of the game's playable character, Jesse, from a variety of male and female options. The option to do so in Minecraft: Story Mode is something of a first for Telltale, which typically has players assume the role of a pre-determined character.

You can check out a few of those options in the gallery below, which shows off the male Jesse, played by Patton Oswalt, and female Jesse, played by Catherine Taber. The game's voice cast also includes Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West and Paul Reubens.

Minecraft: Story Mode's first episode will debut this fall. The game is coming to Android, iOS, Mac, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
