E3 2015: Telltale Games Announces The Walking Dead: Michonne
Is this the first-ever video game mini-series?
06.16.15 - 12:53 AM

It looks like Telltale Games is building upon their legacy of narrative-heavy adventure titles with a new addition to their flagship The Walking Dead game series. Developed in conjunction with Walking Dead comic writer Robert Kirkman, the new title stars fan-favorite character Michonne and covers an arc of her story not explored during the comics or the show.

Billed as a "mini-series," the story will span three episodes instead of the usual five. Players will be required to own the first episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two in order to play the game. As such, The Walking Dead: Michonne will debut on the same platforms: PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, iOS, Android, and PC. In their press release, Telltale explains why they selected Michonne for the starring role in this new Walking Dead chapter:

"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," said Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead. "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."

"Michonne's complexity and range make her an ideal lead for the compelling interactive drama fans have come to expect from Telltale," said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. "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."
