Telltale Games is taking it back to the game that changed everything for the adventure game company: The Walking Dead. On February 23—that's less than two weeks away—The Walking Dead: Michonne hits the scene. It's a three-part miniseries centering on Michonne from Robert Kirkman's best-selling comic books. The trilogy of episodes explores Michonne's absence between issues #126 and #139: why she left and why she came back. You must own at least one episode of The Walking Dead: Season 2 to play The Walking Dead: Michonne.
In Episode 1: In Too Deep, Michonne sails the coast for survivors and supplies. A signal draws her and the ship's crew to a signal. They find a nasty little massacre and possibly the person who massacred everyone.
Michonne is voiced by Samira Wiley who plays Poussey Washington in Netflix's Orange Is the New Black. I'm not certain how you pronounce Ms. Washington's first name. No idea.
I remember, however, getting all kinds of feels playing through that first season of The Walking Dead. It had me thinking about and rethinking my role as a dad to my then two-year-old daughter. And how my own Mom constantly warned me that seemingly no matter what I did, I was gonna die.
The Walking Dead: Michonne – A Telltale Miniseries, Episode 1: In Too Deep (geez, is that how we're doing this?) is out February 23 on everything. PC and Mac, Xbox One and Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, Android and iOS. Episode 2: Give No Shelter will be out in March. Then Episode 3: What We Deserve in April. Again, you have to have at least the first episode of The Walking Dead: Season 2 in order to play Michonne.
Telltale plays through a five-minute preview of the first episode at 8:30 p.m. (Eastern) this Sunday, February 14, Valentine's Day.
