E3 2015: Telltale Games Reveals THE WALKING DEAD: MICHONNE
Telltale Games and comic book creator Robert Kirkman announced a new game today, The Walking Dead: Michonne!
The Walking Dead: Michonne is a Telltale Games mini-series that stars the fan favorite character, Michonne. This katana-wielding badass is haunted by her past and trying to cope with unimaginable loss and regret. We will get to explore her story during the time between issues #126 and #139 from the comic book series, which take place in the middle of “All Out War” and all the way through to the beginning of “Life and Death.” We’ll see what takes Michonne away from Rick’s group and what ultimately brings 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,” said Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead in the press release. “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.”
This three episode long game will be available for download on PC/Mac through the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital distribution services. For console gamers, the game will be available on the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, and in the Xbox Games Store for Xbox One and Xbox 360. It will also be compatible for iOS devices via the App Store, and Android-based devices via Google Play and the Amazon App Store.
To be able to play The Walking Dead: Michonne, you’ll have to play through The Walking Dead: Season Two. And let’s face it, you might as well play Season One, too.
