Telltale Games announced at the E3 convention in Los Angeles today that they are releasing a three-part video game miniseries based on The Walking Dead's beloved character Michonne. The Walking Dead: Michonne will debut this fall on PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and compatible iOS and Android-based devices. Fans will need to have at least the first episode of Telltale's The Walking Dead: Season Two video game series to play The Walking Dead: Michonne. Take a look at the official description of the game, which reveals where in Robert Kirkman's Walking Dead comic books this new story is set.
"The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Games Mini-Series stars 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. 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."
"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."
Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games, had this to say in his statement.
"Michonne's complexity and range make her an ideal lead for the compelling interactive drama fans have come to expect from Telltale. 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."
It seems likely that this new Michonne video game will debut before The Walking Dead returns on AMC for Season 6, sometime this October. Are you excited to play this new Michonne-centric game from The Walking Dead? Let us know what you think below, and stay tuned for more updates.
