While you’ve have to wait longer for Telltale’s third season of The Walking Dead, the developer announced today that it won’t be long until the new miniseries, Michonne, is released. The first of three episodes, In Too Deep, will arrive on February 23, Telltale has confirmed.
In Too Deep follows lead character Michonne (played by Orange is the New Black‘s Samira Wiley), as she joins with Pete and his squad on a ship named The Companion. They are sailing the coast looking for survivors and supplies. It probably won’t go very well, if the following description is any indication.
“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,” Telltale said.
The second episode, Give No Shelter, will arrive in March, with the third and final installment, the ominous-sounding What We Deserve, scheduled to arrive sometime in April.
On February 23, you can pay $15 to unlock In Too Deep and the next two installments when they are released.
Overall, Telltale’s Michonne miniseries provides some backstory for her absence between issues #126 and #139 of Robert Kirkman’s comic book series.
“Over the three episodes of the miniseries, players will discover what took Michonne away from Rick, Ezekiel, and the rest of her trusted group… and what brought her back,” Telltale said.
You won’t have to wait until February 23 to see some footage of Michonne, however, as Telltale will showcase the first five minutes on its YouTube channel this coming Sunday, February 14. The event begins at 5:30 PM PST / 8:30 PM EST
Telltale’s The Walking Dead series has been a huge hit so far. By Telltale’s latest count, it has sold more than 50 million episodes.
