Just a few minutes ago, Telltale’s Kevin Bruner and Skybound’s David Alpert announced the next installment of Telltale’s The Walking Dead! In The Walking Dead: Michonne – A Telltale Games Mini-Series, players will get to live the story of Michonne and find out what exactly happened in the period between All Out War and issue 139!
We’ve been talking with Telltale about possibly telling a story that hews a bit closer to the events in the comic, and Michonne’s story ended up being a really awesome fit. Says Robert Kirkman, “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.”
Telltale’s Kevin Bruner adds, “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.”
The Walking Dead: Michonne – A Telltale Games Mini-Series will premiere this fall on PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and compatible iOS and Android-based devices. Players will need at least the first episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two in order to play.
We’re really, REALLY excited about this! What do you guys think?
