If you've been waiting to see what Telltale will do with the character of Michonne from The Walking Dead, you won't have to wait long because the first episode of the The Walking Dead: Michonne three-episode series, titled In Too Deep, releases on the App Store February 25th. The second episode, Give No Shelter, will come in March and the final one, What We Deserve, will land in April. The whole series will cost $14.99, the pretty standard 5 dollar an episode as the rest of the Telltale episodic stories. In the premiere episode (slight spoilers follow), Michonne joins Pete and his crew on the sailing ship The Companion as they cruise the coast for survivors and supplies. When they respond to a desperate signal for help, they find a horrible massacre. Michonne and the rest of the crew end up on the floating survivors' colony of Monroe, which might be harboring the person responsible for the massacre.

The Walking Dead

If you remember the trailer we posted in December, Michonne's character has a different view than most of the post-apocalyptic world she inhabits; for her, not everyone deserves saving. So, I expect to see players having to make pretty hard choices (as is usually the case in Telltale games) especially in terms of who lives and who dies. Ahead of the releases, you can get an extensive preview of the series on Telltale's Youtube channel on Sunday, February 14th at 8:30 EST. Are you excited about this spin-off series, or would you've preferred to see Telltale focus on another character?

    I still haven't finished season 2. Does this new mini-series have anything to do with the remaining stories or is this like a side story?

      I haven't play the other Walking Dead games, but this looks like it's following the comic book. Pete's boat is where Michonne was for awhile recently. She was gone for awhile and showed back up with Pete on his boat. If anybody is a fan of the show or the games, you should really check out the comic. It's seriously the only reason I'm still read comics.

    Feb 25th is going to be insane.

    Looks good and if it is of the same quality as Walking Dead season 1 then I'm in.

    So excited! I've played the games and they're both great! Especially season 1! I don't watch the show or read the comics so whatever character they decide to focus on makes no difference to me. Hopefully there'll be some connections to the older episodes (even if they are only minor) but, either way, I'm happy and looking forward to Feb 25! Whatever Telltale brings out is always good. Even prior TWD......

      Can't stand what they did to Wolf Among Us. Putting a timer on every dialogue choice? Not to mention the piecemeal marketing strategy they slavishly adhere to with all their games. Just my opinion, and I suppose my voice is in the minority. But, I still avoid TTG apps like, well, the walking dead. 😉

        They put a timer on the dialogue to add to the tension. They cut it into chapters or "piecemeal it" because they are episodic.
