Now that Telltale have wrapped up the first series of Tales From the Borderlands and Game of Thrones, it’s time to show a little more of what’s coming next. Last night they announced a Batman series, but also showed off something sooner. A wee trailer for The Walking Dead: Michonne [official site] shows that the three-episode miniseries, which fills in the story during a gap in the comics, will start in February 2016. Oh, and Michonne won’t be voiced by her TV actor, but is having words put in her mouth by the excellent Samira Wiley – Poussey from Orange Is the New Black.
Telltale explain, “The story explores Michonne [. . .] on an untold journey during the time between issues #126 and #139. Haunted by her past, players will discover what took her away from Rick, Ezekiel, and the rest of her trusted group… and what brought her back.”
When Telltale announced the miniseries back in June, they had planned to kick it off in autumn. That obviously didn’t happen, and it’s curious that something they thought was only a few months away ended up taking a whole lot longer. They do juggle an awful lot of games at once, mind, so I can imagine they might have needed to shift people around to finish something else. Anyway! February 2016 it is.
How are you feeling about this one, Deadheads (as I understand you like to be called – I’ve seen your Deadhead t-shirts, and the decals in the windows of your rusting VW camper vans next to your “LEGALISE IT” and “THE POPE SMOKES DOPE” stickers)?
