Telltale and Skybound have today announced today at E3 that a new mini-series based on the iconic comic book character of Michonne is on the way, aptly titled The Walking Dead: Michonne.
The story explores her untold journey during the time between issues #126 and #139 and will come in three episodes, with a premise similar to that of 400 Days. Players will have to own the first episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two in order to be able to play the mini-series.
Speaking on Telltale’s choice to feature Michonne as a main character, creator of The Walking Dead Robert Kirkman said: “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.”
Michonne’s complexity and range make her an ideal lead for the compelling interactive drama fans have come to expect from Telltale,” added 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.”
The Walking Dead: Michonne is due for release this autumn on PC/Mac, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, iOS and Android.
