The Walking Dead: Michonne, a three-part standalone mini-series for Telltale’s The Walking Dead franchise, has been delayed. Previously slated to arrive this fall, the game is now due to launch in February 2016. Telltale made the announcement tonight during the 2015 Game Awards through a new trailer for Michonne.
Michonne is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and mobile devices. The game will be available as a standalone series, meaning you don’t have to own any previous Walking Dead games, reported Game Spot.
Like Telltale’s other The Walking Dead titles, Michonne is canon to the comic series. It follows the titular character, played by Samira Wiley (Poussey Washington from Orange is the New Black), as she braves the zombie apocalypse between comic issues.
According to Inverse, as the title implies, the central protagonist will be Michonne, the katana-wielding survivor and fan-favorite of Walking Dead lore. In the AMC TV series, the character is portrayed by actress Danai Gurira. The narrative-driven games focus on dialogue and character choices, as opposed to other action games like Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon.
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 Telltale head honcho Kevin Bruner. ?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.?
