The voice actor for Life Is Strange protagonist Max Caulfield, Hannah Telle, has expressed her desire to reprise the role of the heroine in a potential sequel to developer Dontnod Entertainment’s episodic adventure title.
Speaking to the folks over on the Blackwell Podcast, Telle was asked about whether or not she would return to her role should Dontnod bring Max back for a second season of Life Is Strange, with the American actor/singer answering with a resounding “yes” to the question.
“That will be the day that I wake up and I’m, like, crying with joy and I’m like, ‘oh my God, I have a job again!’” she said. “But not just any job, like the best job. So, um, yeah, that would be 100 percent yes.”
While Telle might be willing to return to her role as Max, Life Is Strange producer Luc Baghadoust and co-director Michel Koch revealed in an interview last year that should a sequel ever happen for the episodic title, it would feature a new set of characters.
“We can really go with other characters, other locations, but still keep the identity of the game, the themes of the game,” Koch told Polygon.
Life Is Strange script doctor Alain Damasio has previously broached the subject of a sequel to Dontnod’s title, saying that he would be involved with its development should it be put into production. However, Damasio did not specifically state that Life Is Strange publisher Square Enix and Dontnod are developing a follow-up title.
Hardcore Gamer had the pleasure to speak with Hannah Telle in an exclusive interview last year, in which she praised Dontnod’s incorporation of social themes in Life Is Strange and her collaboration with co-star Ashly Burch, as well as how she was stunned by the commercial success and popularity generated from the title.
With all five episodes of Life Is Strange available digitally — amassing over one million copies sold worldwide — Square Enix has confirmed that a physical release of the title will be coming to North America and Europe.
The Life Is Strange Limited Edition, which was announced one month after the release of Episode 5: Polarized, will launch in North America on January 19 and January 22 in Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Life Is Strange is also heading to Japan for PS4, PS3 and PC, with Square Enix having announced an official release date for the five-part episodic title last month.
