The first season of Minecraft: Story Mode told quite a compelling tale, one that unfolded outside of the usual universe of the popular Mojang series. And there's more where that came from, apparently.

Telltale Games has announced that it will be premiering the first episode of the second season of the series, Hero In Residence, starting this Tuesday, July 11th, for consoles, PC and mobile devices. To get you prepared for what lies ahead, a new trailer has also made its debut, showing you the battles that could lie ahead for Jesse and company.

Minecraft: Story Mode - Season Two continues Jesse's saga in a five-part, narrative-driven, episodic game series developed by Telltale in collaboration with Mojang and members of the Minecraft community. Though players' choices from the first season will carry over into season two, this new season will be accessible to both returning fans and newcomers alike. This second season will also include Telltale's unique multiplayer 'Crowd Play' feature, which allows friends and family to engage with the adventure together by helping to decide the direction of the story from any mobile device with an online connection.

Now that Jesse and the gang have vanquished the Wither Storm, saved the world, and become totally super famous heroes, life has gotten a bit more...complicated. With more responsibilities and less time for adventure, old friendships have started to fade -- at least until Jesse's hand gets stuck in a creepy gauntlet that belongs to an ancient underwater temple. Together with old pals and new comrades alike, Jesse embarks on a brand new journey filled with tough choices, good times, and at least one temperamental llama.

The game is a standalone product from the first season of the Minecraft: Story Mode series, so the Season Pass won't cover it. Just a quick heads-up.

In addition to the first chapter of the digital game coming Tuesday, Telltale has confirmed that a physical retail release of Minecraft: Story Mode Season Two will also be available this fall for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

So if you're into a brick-filled life, this new season is just for you!
