Telltale Games recently announced a new miniseries for The Walking Dead, starring Michonne, the ruthless, katana-wielding woman from the comics and popular AMC series.
The Walking Dead: Michonne is coming to Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PS3, PC, iOS, and Android this fall. This content is actually DLC for The Walking Dead: Season Two and you’ll need to own at least the first episode of that season to access the Michonne miniseries.
The story for The Walking Dead: Michonne “explores her untold journey during the time between issues #126 and #139.” As a result, the game should occur immediately after the crew defeated the evil Negan. TellTale is especially interested in filling in the gaps presented in the comics: “Players will discover what took Michonne away from Rick, Ezekiel, and the rest of her trusted group…and what brought her back.”
Series creator Robert Kirkman added, “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.”
