And when the future of The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series has started to turn bleak, Telltale Games jumped in to save the day and announced The Walking Dead: Michonne – A Telltale Games Mini-Series that will act as the next instalment for The Walking Dead. It appears that the developers will continue their path through the mini-series model that will focus on famous characters from the series.
Of course, the prominent series’ fans know by now that Michonne had to cope with loss, regret, and survival on an unimaginable level. These factors will be a driving force in the upcoming mini-series. If anyone did read The Walking Dead’s comic book series then we can tell you that the game’s story will take place between issues #126 & #139. The mini-series will be 3 episodes in total and will help us understand the reasons behind the hard decisions that Michonne took during her journey.
The reason for choosing Michonne as the first character for this mini-series is best explained by Telltale’s Kevin Bruner and The Walking Dead’s creator Robert Kirkman:
According to 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.”
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.”
You will need to have The Walking Dead: Season Two [Free] in order to play the upcoming game and if you haven’t played The Walking Dead before then what are you waiting for? The first episode is free as well, so there are no places for excuses.
Finally, we expect the game to be released on all devices available (including IOS & Android) between September and December of this year. We are extremely interested in exploring the unfortunate life of Michonne and maybe this will give us an understanding of what factors played a role in making her into the strong-willed woman that we have come to know. Stay tuned with our website for more information about this upcoming mini-series.
