Telltale’s Poker Night 2 announced

Poker Night 2, sequel to Telltale’s high-stakes poker game, is coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Steam for PC and Mac later this April.

The game features entertainment icons from different platforms, which include Claptrap from Borderlands, Brock Samson from Venture Bros, Sam from Sam and Max, as well as Ash from the Evil Dead/Army of Darkness franchise.  Most importantly, GlaDOS from Portal is going to be the dealer.  How cool is that?

“It’s great to revisit our roots after the success of The Walking Dead,” said Dan Connors, Telltale’s CEO. “People might not know that we have a strong history of humor in our games and players are going to find a lot of laughs in Poker Night 2Poker Night 2 is another example of our ability to work with phenomenal partners and bring great characters to life in the gaming universe.”
