The Walking Dead Michonne

Back in December, Telltale Games gave fans of The Walking Dead an early Christmas present. It wasn’t an announcement of season 3, but it was something just as good – a teaser of a three-episode game involving one of the series’ most iconic characters, Michonne. All we knew at the time was that this miniseries would be out sometime in February. Now we know when exactly it’ll debut.

Telltale have announced that The Walking Dead: Michonne Episode 1, ‘In Too Deep’ will launch on February 23rd, on just about every gaming platform. This release will be followed by mobile versions, on iOS, Android, and Amazon devices two days later on February 25th. The next episode, ‘Give No Shelter’ will be out in March, and the concluding piece of the trilogy, ‘What We Deserve’, will be out a month later.

So where does this story of Michonne’s fit in? According to Telltale, between issues #126 and #139 of the comic book, when she left Rick and the others. This miniseries will show where exactly she went, and what brought her back. Here’s the premise for the first part of the tale:

In this premiere episode, ‘In Too Deep,’ Michonne joins Pete and his crew on the sailing ship The Companion as they cruise the coast for survivors and supplies. When a desperate signal for help draws them to a scene of horrific massacre, Michonne and the crew are lead further to the floating survivors’ colony of Monroe, which may just be harbouring the person responsible for the carnage.

I am damn excited! I love pretty much everything Telltale have released thus far, but The Walking Dead is possibly my all time favourite. No other franchise in their stable has left me as emotionally drained as the first two seasons of this zombie apocalypse!

What about you? Are you excited for more of The Walking Dead? Will you be playing the first episode on release, or will you wait for all three to be out before diving in?

Defence of the Ancients? More like Defence of the cabbages! Have you seen my head? I look like a Merino Sheep on pole. NO SHANGE only SHAPPIES! :D

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Nah, I’ve enjoyed the games but I haven’t read/watched the comics/series so I’ve got no idea who she is, not really that interested.

  • DragonSpirit009

    I’ve never watched the series or the game but I have played a Telltale game and I quite liked it.

    • Commander Admiral Chief

      Which one?

      • DragonSpirit009

        The Wolf among us.
        I actually have to finish the last chapter but first payday have to arrive.

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          That’s such a cool game, played it last year.

          • DragonSpirit009

            I love the game and the animation in the game. Kept me entertained for a couple of days.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            The Walking Dead games are pretty much the same that way, just wayyyyyy bleaker.

  • I don’t care about the tv series anymore and frankly all I really want is to see what happened to Clem after I made some hard choices for her.

    I WANT SEASON 3!!!

  • Needs!
