Unless you’re leading the way on one of the main shows, E3 week is a strange old time to announce a new game, especially when it’s a mini series. But hey, who are we to tell Telltale Games what to do and it’s always with great pleasure that we can talk about The Walking Dead.
The latest installment to The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series will come in the form of a shorter than usual, mini-series featuring Michonne. Starring the iconic character from the comic book series haunted by her past and coping with unimaginable loss and regret. The story explores her untold journey during the time between issues #126 and #139.
Throughout the three episodes, you’ll be able to discover what took Michonne away from Rick, Ezekiel, and the rest of her trusted group… and indeed what brought her back.
You’ll be able to find Michonnes story on the usual formats of Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, iOS and Android this Autumn and you’ll have to have purchased the first episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two in order to play it.
“In many ways, Michonne herself is a reflection of the world of The Walking Dead. She is brutal and cold on the outside, but deep beneath what is broken, she remains hopeful, trying to claw her way out of the darkness that surrounds her,” said Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead. “In our effort to bring the world of the comic and the world of the Telltale series closer together, there is no greater character than Michonne to help bridge that gap.”
“Michonne’s complexity and range make her an ideal lead for the compelling interactive drama fans have come to expect from Telltale,” said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. “With this mini-series, players will experience Michonne’s challenges first-hand, and the choices they make will shape her journey. We’re incredibly honored by Robert for the opportunity to share this untold story in The Walking Dead universe.”
We will of course bring you more as and when details drop.
