Publisher of digital entertainment, Telltale Games, and Robert Kirkman, creator and writer of "The Walking Dead," will release a new installment for the best-selling and award-winning "The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series" franchise set to premiere next year.
"The Walking Dead: Michonne – A Telltale Games Mini-Series" stars the iconic character from the comic book series haunted by her past and coping with unimaginable loss and regret. The story explores her untold journey during the time between issues #126 and #139. Through this Telltale Games mini-series of 3 episodes, players will discover what took Michonne away from Rick, Ezekiel, and the rest of her trusted group… and what brought her back.
The game, featuring "Orange is the New Black" actress Samira Wiley voicing the character (not Danai Gurira as you might expect), premieres February 2016, and will be available for download 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.
Further information about how to access the mini-series will be made available closer to the premiere.
"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."
To date, "The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series" has sold more than 44 million episodes worldwide, earning more than 100 Game of the Year awards.
