Coinciding with the hotly anticipated return of AMC’s The Walking Dead for its back half of season 6, Telltale has released the first 6 minutes of the upcoming Michonne mini series. Staring Samira Wiley (Orange is the New Black) as the voice of Michonne, the game will deal largely with Michonne’s disappearance for over 10 issues in the Walking Dead comics before her recent return.
The mini series should give us a deeper look into the character, whose background has still remained fairly mysterious despite first appearing way back in issue 19.
The Walking Dead: Michonne will consist of 3 episodes, and will release later this month on the 23rd for Playstation 4 and Xbox One and two days later on the 25th for iOS and Android. PC users will see their version delivered on March 1st.
The Walking Dead‘s season 6b will be airing Sundays at 9pm on AMC.
Today we can share an extended preview of the first six minutes of The Walking Dead: Michonne – A Telltale Miniseries.
The Walking Dead: Michonne – A Telltale Miniseries stars the iconic, blade-wielding character from Robert Kirkman’s best-selling comic books, portrayed in-game by award-winning actress Samira Wiley (Orange is the New Black).
Haunted by her past, and coping with unimaginable loss and regret, the story explores Michonne across a three episodes of miniseries event. Players will dive into the mind of Michonne to discover what took her away from Rick, Carl, and the rest of her trusted group… and what brought her back.
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 harboring the person responsible for the carnage.
The Walking Dead: Michonne – A Telltale Miniseries will premiere its first of three episodes, ‘In Too Deep,’ this February 23rd 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, followed by a release on compatible iOS devices via the App Store, and Android-based devices via Google Play and the Amazon App Store starting February 25th. The second episode in the miniseries, ‘Give No Shelter,’ will follow in the month of March, and conclude with the third episode, ‘What We Deserve,’ in April. All three episodes in the miniseries will be available for purchase at the cost of $14.99 USD or equivalent when the first episode debuts, including access to the second and third episodes as they become available.
