Telltale has announced a new mini-series in its Walking Dead canon based around Michonne, a character in the comic book series.
Due this autumn, this spin-off will be set after the events kicking off Season Two of the game. As such, Michonne will be DLC for Season Two, and you’ll have the have the first episode of that season to access it.
For fans of the comic, it will be set between issues #126-139.
“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 The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman. “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,” added Telltale co-founder and CEO Kevin Bruner. “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.”
Michonne will be on all platforms The Walking Dead: Season Two is already on. That includes: PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, iOS and Android.
