Following prior speculation stemming from a Gamestop listing, Telltale Games has confirmed that its dark fairy tale adventure The Wolf Among Us will be available on retail shelves come November 4.

Not only will this mark the retail debut of the Vita, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, but it's also the first time the adventure game will reach the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Each retail version of the game, regardless of platform, will include all five of the game's episodes, and both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will also play host to likewise complete digital iterations of The Wolf Among Us.

If Telltale's name on the box isn't enough to sell you on the adventure following the studio's phenomenal Walking Dead adaptation, perhaps our review can sway you. "The Wolf Among Us has been consistently excellent from start to finish, and its final chapter, Cry Wolf, is the well-told end of this well-told story," reads our four and a half of five stars review of the game's final episode. Beyond the break you'll find a trailer reiterating all of this information, only with more pretty pictures to stare at.
