The Walking Dead revived in mini-series this fall

In two full seasons so far, Telltale's The Walking Dead has focused on its own original characters, but the next installment of the series will be the three-part Michonne, centering around the titular character from Robert Kirkman's comic books.

While few plot details have been released, Michonne follows the iconic heroine who's "haunted by her past and coping with unimaginable loss and regret." Events in the game promise to reveal the previously-untold story that occurred between issues #126 and #139, in which players will discover "what took Michonne away from Rick, Ezekiel, and the rest of her trusted group... and what brought her back."

For those unfamiliar with Kirkman's comics, the author himself describes Michonne as "a reflection of the world of The Walking Dead. She is brutal and cold on the outside, but deep beneath what is broken, she remains hopeful, trying to claw her way out of the darkness that surrounds her." As with Telltale's earlier Walking Dead titles, the new game will not only let players accompany Michonne, but to "shape her journey" through first-hand decision-making.

It should be noted that Michonne is not a standalone release, as it will be necessary to have at least the first episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two installed to play. The game will be launched on all the same platforms, including PC, Mac, PlayStation 3 and 4, Xbox 360 and One, iOS, and Android. There is no firm release date set, but we can look for the mini-series to debut sometime "this fall".
