The Walking Dead: Michonne release date confirmed

The first episode of Telltale’s Walking Dead: Michonne mini-series will be available on 23 February, the developer has confirmed.

Telltale’s Michonne mini-series was first announced at San Diego Comic Con in 2014, and now the wait for the anticipated comic crossover is soon to be over.

The first episode, titled In Too Deep, will be available on 23 February for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. iOS and Android will follow shortly on 25 February.

It will feature protagonist Michonne (voiced by Orange is the New Black’s Samira Wiley) as she finds herself on board a ship called The Companion.

She, along with some friends, are sailing the coast in pursuit of supplies and potential survivors. Judging by the title, that boat won’t be staying afloat for very long.

“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,” the description reads.

The second episode, Give No Shelter, will be coming in March, followed by the final installment, What We Deserve, in April.

Michonne’s mini-series is aiming to provide some explanation for her character’s absence between issues #126 and #139 of Robert Kirkman’s comic book.

“Over the three episodes of the mini-series, players will discover what took Michonne away from Rick Ezekiel and the rest of her trusted group… and what brought her back,” Telltale explained.

The Walking Season 2 wrapped up back in 2014, so it’s been a while since we’ve visited Telltale’s take on the undead universe.
