To me the most important question is, who did they get to play Marty's part in the German version?
If I pre-order the game now, can I choose the German version of the game later when downloading it after release, or will I have to wait until the German version is listed in the store?

It seems like the German voices for Doc and Marty will be Bernd Vollbrecht (Dr. Cox from "Scrubs" and Antonio Banderas) and Dirk Stollberg. And while both of them are good voice actors, it's still a bad move by Telltale and a waste of money (which wasn't enough in the first place), as it makes the German dub absolutely pointless.
Will more German people be tempted to buy the game, knowing it has a German dub? For sure. Will they feel nostalgic when hearing those new voices? Hardly...
A lot of the love for BTTF stems from its nostalgia, and here in Germany being nostalgic about movies has a lot to do with their German dubs. And this is especially true with an actor like MJF, who - since the first BTTF - got Sven Hasper affixed to him as a voice actor, who from then on voiced him in basically everything he did (including the BTTF radio plays and even the cartoon series). And since the game is supposed to be a direct continuation of the movies, doesn't this require continuity?
I don't get it... with all the care taken by Telltale to be as true to the movies as possible (getting Lloyd, going all the way to find a dead-on voice-double for Fox, securing rights to use actor likenesses...) and FINALLY attempting a multilingual release on their own, they drop the ball that easily?

Just because one person at TTG offered his personal experiences, indicates in no way that the whole industry works this way. Put me on the opposite list where i worked on several projects where this worked out fine, once we found the right people.
Again with the right priority this can be done.
I find it kind of a questionable style closing threads in such a way. It has a bit of teenagers are moderating this forum, lacking experience and tolerance.
