Telltale Games has announced Poker Night 2 for XBLA, the sequel to 2010’s Poker Night at the Inventory.

This time out you’ll be able to play Hold ‘Em against a selection of stars from the worlds of games, movies and TV. Joining you at the table will be Claptrap from Borderlands, Ash Williams from Army of Darkness, Brock Samson from The Venture Bros and Sam from Sam & Max.

Meanwhile, Portal’s GlaDOS will be dealing the cards.

Poker Night 2 will also offer the chance to win Bounty Unlocks by achieving special in-game goals. These unlocks will reward players with a range of items including exclusive heads and skins for Borderlands 2 and unique Xbox 360 Avatar Items.

 “It’s great to revisit our roots after the success of The Walking Dead. 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 2,” said Dan Connors, Telltale CEO and Co-Founder, adding “Poker Night 2 is another example of our ability to work with phenomenal partners and bring great characters to life in the gaming universe.”

Telltale Games’ Poker Night 2 hits XBLA in late April.

Well the first one was a Steam exclusive where you could unlock TF2 items by beating the Heavy, Max from "Sam and Max", Strongbad from "Homestar Runner" and Tycho from Penny Arcade at Poker.

This game will be exactly the same format as the first, but with the TF2 items only for Steam players while Every Format can unlock the Borderlands stuff (if you own the game of course).

So, if you like Poker with certain Niche characters or Free Borderlands items for Winning at Poker, this game could be for you!

Sounds awesome. Can't wait. When is WSOP Full House Poker out? I hope these don't collide.

I think its cool when characters make appearances in other games. It would be awesome to play poker as claptrap!

@7 - I believe the first one was $10 when it first came out so let's just hope this one is the same too. The first one is currently $5 on steam, you should check it out to see if you would like it :3

I just hope they don't make us get a Straight Flush (or Royal) for an achievement. That was a major time waster in the Steam original.

Colour me ejaculated.

I appreciate that may now make a great deal of sense, but poker, glados, sam, ash, and claptrap is a winning conversation.

Is the voice for the other dude the guy that plays Joe in family guy?

I really hope Telltale was able to get Bruce Campbell to reprise his role as Ash for this. I bought the first game primarily for the TF2 items, but i ended up loving it for what it was after words. Best poker game I ever bought, and I hope this one turns out well.

@#22- Or rather, it was reported on this very site.

@#10- I find it funny that people thought it was April Fool's. It was leaked (screens) earlier last month.

Same with people being confused by FarCry 3 Blood Dragon or whatever.

I saw Telltale games and got really excited because I assumed it was news on The Walking Dead: Season 2, but this is pretty cool as well :D

Telltale made many games before Walking Dead; newer installments of Sam & Max and Monkey Island to name a few

Would be awesome if any of the characters from Telltale's Walking Dead game also made the cut.
