Like the zombies that inspire it, Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead is one episodic series that just won’t stay down. Nor should it of course; The Walking Dead has gifted us with some of the finest adventure gaming in years over the course of two seasons. It’s corpse is shambling up for more this month, with Telltale announcing the first episode of its The Walking Dead: Michonnethe mini-series is coming soon.
The Walking Dead: Michonne - Episode 1: In Too Deep kickstarts the spin-off, which focuses on Michonne from the original comics and TV series. She hasn’t cropped up in the games yet so she might not be familiar to everyone, but the general gist of it is that she leaves the main group for a while early on, and this mini-series will explore what zombie slaying she got up to in her downtime.
Having left Rick and co, Michonne hops aboard The Companion, a sailing vessel captained by Pete and backed up by his crew. Before long they stumble on a signal for help deep in the ocean, leading them to a horrific massacre aboard a floating deathtrap.
The whole Michonne mini-series will be wrapped up in three episodes, and can be bought for $14.99. Episode 1 - In Too Deep is out on February 23rd for just about every platform, with Episode 2 - Give No Shelter and Episode 3 - What We Deserve to come in March and April respectively. Telltale sticking to its monthly schedule is about as likely as a real zombie apocalypse though, so don’t hold your breath.
