Just as the E3 week begins, Telltales makes an announcement that The Walking Dead fans will love.
Telltale Games and Skybound announced today that The Walking Dead: Michonne – a Telltale mini series will premiere this Fall.
The three episode mini-series will follow the popular Walking Dead character who’s “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. Through this Telltale Games mini-series of 3 episodes, players will discover what took Michonne away from Rick, Ezekiel, and the rest of her trusted group… and what brought her back.”
The Walking Dead creator, Robert Kirkman, had this to say about the decision of Michonne having her own mini-series:
“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. 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.”
In addition, the announcement mentioned that “players will require at least the first episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two in order to play The Walking Dead: Michonne. Further information about how to access the mini-series will be made available closer to the premiere.”
The Walking Dead: Michonne will be available for download on PC/Mac from the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital distribution services, the PlayStation Network for PS4 and PS3, the Xbox Games Store for Xbox One and Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, compatible iOS devices via the App Store, and Android-based devices via Google Play and the Amazon App Store.
