As Telltale uses a variety of literary and cinematic devices in their games' narratives, I could easily see them using a narrator for the exposition of the story. But that's a separate question from having a narrator describe each interaction with the game-world. While a narrator and icons, strictly speaking, might be just icing, I think that having multiple modes of interaction and feedback with every combination -- for the sake of both atmosphere and more complex puzzle-solving -- is fairly important to the King's Quest style of gameplay.
