Skybound Games has announced the release of Seasons 2 and 3 of The Walking Dead adventure game series, originally developed by Telltale Games. The release of Seasons 2 and 3 completes the previously released Season One and The Final Season, finally putting the entire series on Nintendo Switch.

Each of the four episodic seasons are priced at $14.99 each on the Nintendo eShop. The complete series is also available on Steam.

Telltale’s The Walking Dead is based on Robert Kirkman’s popular comic book series of the same name, further popularized by the AMC TV show. To date the games  have sold millions of digital copies worldwide, earned more than 100 Game of the Year awards, and received two BAFTA video game awards for Best Story.

The series follow Clementine, who begins Season One as a young girl rescued by the player protagonist, Lee. In subsequent stories Clementine becomes the primary character, drifting among different survival groups, and meeting friends and foes while navigating the zombie apocalypse. The series ultimately recived mixed reviews, with none of the sequels able to live up to the incredibly high bar set by the first season.

Telltale Games was infamously shuttered back in 2018, with The Walking Dead: The Final Season only half-finished. Thankfully for fans, Skybound Games (owned by Robert Kirkman) picked up the pieces and finished the remaining episodes with most of the original team. Telltale Games has since been resurrected.

Skybound Games and Skydance Interactive are releasing a new Walking Dead video game, Saints & Sinners, this week on Jan. 23. It’s a VR game that takes place in the flooded remains of New Orleans.

The Walking Dead games are rated M for Mature.
