Oops! Poker Night 2 Announcement Leaked Ahead of Schedule
Brock Samson of the Venture Bros is getting digitized into the form of a video game, but contrary to expectations, we don’t think he’s going to get a game of his own. Instead, he’ll be a part of the sequel to Telltale’s character-based poker game, Poker Night at the Inventory. It’s called Poker Night 2.
News of the game’s existence was leaked via screenshots depicting Brock and a host of other characters seated at a poker table. The screenshots were accidentally posted on the Xbox store website, and have since been removed (via Gameranx).
In addition to Brock, the characters seated at the table include Claptrap from the Borderlands series, Ash Campbell from the Evil Dead, and Sam from Sam & Max. Borderlands’ Mad Moxxi and Portal’s Glados will also be playing supplementary roles, although they won’t be active participants in the game of poker.
Telltale Games plans to announce the game for real on April 1st at thekeyparty.com. It’s a pity the whole thing got leaked ahead of schedule.
Interestingly enough, some promotional items for the game have already been added to Team Fortress 2 as a part of its March 12, 2013 patch. These include the Portal 2-themed Long Fall Loafers, the Borderlands 2-themed Dapper Disguise, Brock Samson’s Samson Skewer, Sam’s hat—the Bloodhound, and the Army of Darkness-themed Necronomicrown. Presumably, these items can be attained by beating each of the game’s characters at poker.
