The first of three episodes of the upcoming miniseries, The Walking Dead: Michonne will be available on Feb. 25, with subsequent episodes to follow in March and April. The miniseries is a follow-up to The Walking Dead episodic game from Telltale Games.
The first episode, titled In Too Deep, features Michonne as the main character, along with Pete. The two sail around looking for survivors when they run upon a not-so-pleasant scene that leads them into a floating survival colony. The story is said to sit between #126 and #139 of the comic book series. Actress Samira Wiley who appears in the television show Orange Is the New Black, will provide the voice for Michonne.
Before the game’s release, Telltale will be showing a sneak peek of the game on their YouTube channel at 8:30 pm EST on Feb. 14.
The Walking Dead series has been a huge hit. It’s sold more than 50 million individual episodes and has received lots of praise from critics and gamers. Telltale has created quite a niche for themselves in this type of game. The company has made episodic versions of Game of Thrones, the Wolf Among Us, and is currently finishing up a game based on Minecraft.
