Jesse and friends will be returning next month, following an announcement from Telltale and Mojang that "Minecraft: Story Mode" Season 2 will be arriving on July 11, 2017. The title of the first episode has been revealed to be "Hero in Residence," putting to rest conflicting takes on where the September 2016 finale would pick up from.

Most Story Mode followers were initially under the impression that season 2 would take a long time to create. Part of that is the fact that the developers have been notorious for taking their own sweet time when it comes to following up games, thus the recent announcement comes a bit of a surprise.

Nevertheless, the important thing is that "Minecraft: Story Mode" is just around the corner, with Jesse carrying on as the world’s greatest living superhero. Heading into the second season, he/she will have to deal with new challenges, which will include new responsibilities and rivalries, Attack of the Fan Boy reports.

A brief synopsis reveals that the new story mode starts from a simple treasure hunt that goes wrong. Jesse's hand will be trapped in a cursed prismarine gauntlet, suggesting that players have to deal with a dark and ancient power.

From there, Jesse and the gang will venture out into the darkest depths of the world. There will be a mix of old and new faces that include fortune tellers and enemies. Indeed, tough choices need to be made on "Minecraft: Story Mode" season 2.

Jesse will be joined by old allies like Patton Oswalt, Catherine Taber and Ashley Johnson. Other characters are expected to be announced before season 2 officially rolls out on July 11.

Season 2 will be a five-part episodic adventure that continues the adventures of Jesse and friends. Changes are expected in their respective abilities after defeating the Wither Storm from the first season.

Game saves will be imported together with the experience and decisions the players had made. It remains to be seen if those choices will play a crucial role in the sequel. "Minecraft: Story Mode" season 2 will be released for platforms such as the PS4, Xbox One, PC and mobile.
