At the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, game developer Telltale Games has announced a brand new series starring everyone’s favourite sword wielding dreadlocked character from The Walking Dead – Michonne.

The story will comprise of three episodes and take place in the comic storyline, with the mini-series taking place between issues #126 and #139 and arrive on computer (PC/Mac), Consoles (PS4/Xbox One as well as PS3/Xbox 360) and on Mobile for Android (and iOS) this ‘Fall’ (think Spring in Australia).

There will be a pre-requisite to play The Walking Dead: Michonne, with Telltale games announcing you’ll need at least the first episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two in order to play. – but they promise an update on this closer to the launch date – presumably it’s a story based thing or could be tied to In-App Purchase in the game.

While there’s a lot of popular characters in The Walking Dead, Telltale Games lets series creator Robert Kirkman and Telltale’s own Kevin Bruner talk about why they chose Michonne for the first spin-off story:

Robert Kirkman:

In many ways, Michonne herself is 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 he. In our effort to bring the world of the comic and the world of the Telltale series closer together, there is no greater character than Michonne to help bridge that gap.

Kevin Bruner:

Michonne’s complexity and range make her an ideal lead for the compelling interactive drama fans have come to expect from Telltale. With this mini-series, players will experience Michonne’s challenges first-hand, and the choices they make will shape her journey. We’re incredibly honored by Robert for the opportunity to share this untold story in The Walking Dead universe.

We’ll know more about the launch of the game later in the year.
