We finally have some more information about that new Stargate SG-1 videogame, and it looks even cooler than we first thought.

The epic teaser trailer for the new episodic mobile game Stargate SG-1: Unleashed caught us off guard last week, with a welcome return to the world of Goa’uld and event horizons. Now some new details have trickled out about the first episode of Unleashed, which is set for release on the iOS App Store on March 7. An Android release will follow about a month later.

The story is being handled by Sally Malcolm, who has a ton of experience with the Stargate canon. She’s written the tie-in novels Stargate SG-1: A Matter of Honor, The Cost of Honor and Atlantis Rising. She also scripted some SG-1 audio dramas, so she’s definitely well versed in the series.

Turns out that first trailer was also a good representation of what we can expect from the game, which is being described as an “original story with interactive elements.” What that means we don’t know, but we’re hoping it's more like the acclaimed Walking Dead game and not just a slightly interactive CGI episode. But regardless, we’ll take whatever Stargate goodies we can get.

Even cooler? All the original cast members have signed on to lend their voices to the app, including Richard Dean Anderson, Michael Shanks, Amanda Tapping and Christopher Judge. With a potential follow-up DVD movie still on hold because of MGM's money woes, it looks like this is the closest we're going to get to an SG-1 reunion anytime soon.

Developer Arkalis Interactive has also released some new promo and concept art to keep us entertained. Check it out below:
