Michonne is one of the more enduring characters in The Walking Dead, bringing her brand of zombie-slaying to the show and comic with her quick katana work. In February, Telltale Games will give players a bit more insight into the character in a three-episode event. Michonne will be portrayed by Samira Wiley and her story between issues #126 and #139 will be explored. Through this three-episode Telltale Games series, players will discover what took Michonne away from Rick, Ezekiel, and the rest of her trusted group... and what brought her back.
"We've been hard at work on this very special exploration of The Walking Dead universe that will further bridge together our game series with the canon of Robert Kirkman's comic though one of its most complex characters struggling to maintain her own humanity," said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. "Deeply haunted by the decisions of her past, putting players in the role of a character like Michonne to navigate the broken world around her is an experience that feels uniquely Telltale, and something we simply cannot wait for The Walking Dead fans to play."
The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Games Series will be available as a stand-alone three-episode series on PC/Mac from the Telltale Online Store, Steam and other digital distribution services, the PlayStation Network for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, the Xbox Games Store for Xbox One and Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, compatible iOS devices via the App Store and Android-based devices via Google Play and the Amazon App Store.
