The three episode miniseries, titled The Walking Dead: Michonne, tells the story of Michonne during the period between issues #126 and #139 when she mysteriously disappeared from the main group seen in the show and comics. It explores the circumstances of her disappearance and what eventually brings her back to the group.
"We've been hard at work on this very special exploration of The Walking Dead universe that will further bridge together our game series with the canon of Robert Kirkman's comic though one of its most complex characters struggling to maintain her own humanity," said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. "Deeply haunted by the decisions of her past, putting players in the role of a character like Michonne to navigate the broken world around her is an experience that feels uniquely Telltale, and something we simply cannot wait for The Walking Dead fans to play."
The titular protagonist, Michonne, will be portrayed by the actress Samira Wiley best known for her award-winning role on Orange is the New Black. It isn't known whether there will be any crossover between the miniseries and the Telltale series, but it wouldn't be out of the question. No word yet on when Season 3 of Telltale's The Walking Dead will release.
The Walking Dead: Michonne releases digitally this February on consoles, PC/Mac, and mobile devices.
