The Walking Dead: Michonne gets release date of February 23
Valentine's Day brought more than Cupid and the return of The Walking Dead TV show this year. Thanks to the extended preview uploaded to YouTube yesterday, a release date for the first episode of The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Miniseries has been revealed - and it's sooner than you'd expect!
Prepare to adventure as the blade-wielding badass on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PC, Mac, iOS, or Android as soon as February 23, 2016.
Enthusiasts of the television show beware: this game series is derived from Robert Kirkman's best-selling comic books, not the AMC original series, therefore, the events that unfold may not transpire in the television show. That being said, comic book readers will certainly find the miniseries enjoyable as it delivers insight on the time Michonne left Rick, their group of survivors, and her katana behind. Telltale promises that:
"Players will discover what took Michonne away from her trusted allies, and what brought her back to them."
The first episode of Michonne's Telltale spin-off, "In too Deep," takes place aboard sailing ship, "The Companion," on a journey down the coast of Chesapeake Bay. Upon the discovery of a great massacre, Michonne and her crew must enter the colony known as Monroe in search of the culprits.
Following the gameplay style of other Telltale games, TWD Michonne's universe will be entirely dependent on the player decisions to impact the final outcome of the story. Speaking of, the story will certainly be amusing as Michonne has never been one to share her personal feelings. A series entirely focused on her is sure to shed some light on her situation.
To recap, the release date for In too Deep, Episode One of The Walking Dead: Michonne three part miniseries is the very close February 23rd, 2016. The game will be available on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android.
