In last December, we informed you that The Walking Dead: Michonne will premiere in February, 2016. Cheer up, because now we know a lot more about this upcoming Telltale title. This mini-series will consist of 3 episodes only and the first episode will be called In Too Deep, and will be available this February 25th. The second episode will be titled Give No Shelter, and we expect it to be available in March. The final episode will be called What We Deserve, and should be available for download in April.
Now we know the prices as well. The whole mini-series should cost $14.99, which means each episode will be priced at $4.99. This is standard pricing when it comes to Telltale games because they pretty much price their games at $4.99 per episode. Three episodes are a lot and it should be exciting to see more of this zombie-occupied series. If you haven’t noticed, the titles of the episodes sound very gloomy and we can already tell that things will go very wrong throughout the series.
In Episode 1, In Too Deep, you will explore Michonne’s journey as she joins Pete along with the crew to sail around the coast in search of survivors and supplies. As the ship, The Companion, comes closer and the crew receives a desperate call for help, they head towards the signal only to find a bloody massacre has taken place. As they venture into the Colony of Monroe, things become dark as they might be closer than they think to the person who committed the horrible massacre.
Exploring Michonne will be a tough approach considering the struggle she has between her humanity and survival. 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.
Believe it or not, Michonne’s role will be played by award-winning actress Samira Wiley from the American Comedy-Drama, Orange is the New Black. With The Walking Dead: Michonne, you will understand the influential factors that took Michonne away from her trusted group and what brought her back to them.
