Original post (2/10): Last June, Telltale Games announced that a new episodic game would be coming to the Google Play Store sometime in the Fall of 2016, based on The Walking Dead’s iconic Michonne character. Up until now we’ve heard little to no other details regarding the game, but thankfully Telltale is now ready to spill the beans on some new information.
The first episode of The Walking Dead: Michonne, entitled ‘In Too Deep’, will launch on Android and iOS devices starting Thursday, February 25th. This episode will also launch on PC/Mac, Steam, PlayStation 3 and 4, and on the Xbox One and 360 on Tuesday, February 23rd. The second episode, ‘Give No Shelter’, will launch in March, and the final episode, ‘What We Deserve’, will come in April. All three episodes in the mini-series will be available for $14.99 when the first episode debuts. There’s no mention from Telltale as to whether or not each episode can be purchased on its own, but we’re thinking that’s not an option this time around.
It should be noted that the game won’t star Danai Gurira, who plays Michonne in the AMC television series. Instead, Telltale roped in the next best actress out there – none other than Samira Wiley of Orange is the New Black.
Wondering what the first episode has in store? Here’s a description from Telltale:
In this premiere episode, ‘In Too Deep,’ Michonne joins Pete and his crew on the sailing ship The Companion as they cruise the coast for surVivors and supplies. When a desperate signal for help draws them to a scene of horrific massacre, Michonne and the crew are lead further to the floating surVivors’ colony of Monroe, which may just be harboring the person responsible for the carnage. Haunted by her past, and coping with unimaginable loss and regret, the story explores Michonne’s absence between issues #126 and #139 of the comic book. Over the three episodes of the miniseries, players will discover what took Michonne away from Rick, Ezekiel, and the rest of her trusted group… and what brought her back.
Before the official release, you’ll be able to check out an extended preview of the first episode on Telltale Games’ YouTube channel on Sunday, February 14th at 8:30 pm EST. You’ll get to see the first five minutes of episode one.
