The Walking Dead: Michonne Is A New Telltale Miniseries

Telltale Games have announced a new three-part The Walking Dead miniseries, starting this autumn. The Walking Dead: Michonne, as the name suggests, focuses on Michonne, one of the longest surviving characters in the comics. Across the three episodes, you’ll explore her whereabouts and actions between issues 126 -139 of the comics.

We already saw Glenn briefly cameo in season one of Telltale’s The Walking Dead, but this will be the first time the games and the comics have crossed over in any meaningful way. Whether that means we can expect to see Lee, Clementine or others in their party in the comics down the line remains to be seen.

In order to play The Walking Dead: Michonne, you’ll need to own at least the first episode of season two. Full details of how that will work will be revealed at a later date. Emphasis here seems to be on this being the first in a line of spin-off / tie-ins for the series, with more announcements to come at New York Comic Con later this year.

    I like the idea of spin offs in the tell tale format, I just hope it wont require too much knowledge (read: any) of the character beforehand to understand them.

      Only the very worst entertainment products presume that you’ve got prior knowledge of the series. Most games assume that you have limited to no knowledge of other games in the series or any comic tie-ins. There might be little in-jokes or subtle bits that will reward fans of the series, but these will not make up the main story elements.

    Meh, I haven’t enjoyed The Walking Dead 2 as much as the first. Maybe the initial magic of Telltale’s story games has worn off, maybe it’s just not as good. I’m a big enough fan of GoT that I was willing to buy Telltale’s “game” based on that, too, but at this point it seems like they’re just churning these things out at a breakneck speed. I hope people stop buying this stuff, because I don’t want the trend of games with very limited interactivity to be encouraged.

      Don’t wish a boycott on them but I agree with the gist of what you’re saying. The second series was a major disappointment for me – whilst it was always true your choices have little genuine impact in these games, the first drew you in to the point where it didn’t matter, and felt really well contained and consistent. The second seemed determined to make you feel like a complete passenger in a messy and pointlessly depressing TV series. Fell out of live with the Telltale formula big time with it, which is a shame because Wolf Among Us was good.

        2’s biggest issue was the ending, because fucks sake you play a 10(?) year old girl whose best hope by the end of the game is to shoot everyone and then leave and do your own thing.

        And you don’t get that option.

    Lilly (from the first game) is in at least one issue of the comics that came out before the game did.
