As if Telltale didn’t already have comic book and video game fans excited enough with their Batman announcement, they have shown off a full length trailer for their upcoming Walking Dead spin off based on Michonne. Due to hit February 2016, this game will introduce the sword wielding badass from the popular Kirkman comic book series into the video game continuity for the first time!
Michonne, perhaps better known for her role in the TV series adaptation of The Walking Dead (played by the talented Danai Gurira) is one of the most popular characters and its no surprise to me that she is finally ready for her own game. Rather than the usual 6-7 parts we normally get, this has been touted as a mini-series not unlike how we often receive spin off stories in larger comic books and my hope is that it will lead to her showing up in season 3 of the main game.
I am incredibly excited about this game with Michonne being one of my favourite characters and it will be a joy to watch her slice and dice her way through herds of Walkers in a game dedicated to her. Thankfully we don’t have very long to wait until we get to experience her adventure for ourselves. Are there any other characters from the series you would like to see a game based around?
