All-new Season of The Walking Dead to be Revealed this Sunday June 12th
Fellow survivors, this past weekend we let you know that the upcoming season of The Walking Dead would be making its highly anticipated premiere this Fall. Next week also marks the annual E3 Gaming Expo, a celebration of all things video games, and we’re preparing one of our biggest and most pivotal showings for Telltale yet.
This Sunday, we’ll be revealing a sneak peek at the all-new season of The Walking Dead - The Telltale Series. There’s been a lot of speculation since the conclusion of the previous season in 2014 on where the story will go next… and we’ve been working hard in the studio as well as with Robert Kirkman and our friends at Skybound to take the series in an unexpected direction.
What we can tell you now is that this new season will serve as both a bold new entry point for the story, as well as a continuation of the saga that began with Lee and Clementine in 2012.
There’s more we could tell you right now… but the more we say… the more we’ll be spoiling what’s to come. Tune in LIVE this Sunday, June 12th toIGN.comat 3pm PT / 6pm ET for your first look at the new season, and to hear more from the team at Telltale on where things are headed next.
The best is yet to come for 2016 and beyond, and we can’t wait to show you what’s lurking just around the corner…
On Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles, Telltale joined IGN to reveal the world’s first sneak peek at the next season of ‘The Walking Dead’ series, set to premiere this fall.
It’s just a brief glimpse, and we’re not yet ready to confirm a whole lot about exactly what it means… but there’s a lot of fodder in there for speculation.
So what CAN we say about this upcoming season? For a start, who’s that guy with Clementine? His name is Javier. Yes, Clem returns and will play a key role, but this is a new story as much as it is a continuation of Seasons One and Two. Players completely new to the Telltale series will be able to jump right in without feeling lost at all, and those familiar with previous seasons will perhaps find some even deeper meaning, as we’ll be working to ensure save file decisions will carry over from the last two games if you’ve played them in the past.
When it comes to Clementine, players’ relationships with her have very much evolved over the course of Seasons One and Two. In Season One, it was all about playing a more paternal role and helping a little girl find her feet and the courage to survive in a world gone to hell. Season Two was about Clementine developing her skills and becoming more independent of the people around her. In this next season, she’s in her early teens, and has grown to be a person who is clearly capable of handling herself - someone very much on the same level as Javier, a fellow survivor who has been through hell, and has managed to remain alive as long as Clem.
Clem has also been through a lot since we left her at the end of Season Two… and depending on the paths players may have taken with her in the past, she may or may not be exactly the same person we knew back then. You’ll play as both Javier and Clementine through the course of the season, but exactly how that works is one of the exciting details we’re not quite yet ready to reveal.
Be sure to check out that teaser, and let us know what you think! We’re thrilled to be able to share this with you. Stay tuned for more info on this new season as we head towards the premiere this fall!
Did you know what Jay’s final wish meant? (I wish Nya took my hand, and today no one ever found the teapot in the first place.“
• Ninjago is now back to how it was after the Possession season (so the ninja are STILL famous)
• Time goes back and almost none of the events of Skybound happened up to the billboard scene in Episode 55 (where Nya refuses Jay’s hand). This means the following:
• Lloyd was never an old man
• The ninja would have never met Captain Soto again
• Skylor and Echo Zane were never seen this season
• NYA NEVER DIES OF TIGER WIDOW VENOM POISONING (hooray!!!)
• Jay’s father was never Cliff Gordon, and he never died. Jay was never adopted!!!
• None of the Sky Pirates would have ever been mentioned.
• Nya might never get her Airjitzu outfit
• Jay never needed an eyepatch/got hurt in the eye
• SEASON 6 IS NOW A TANGENT/ALTERNATE PLOT LINE!!!
• Also, JAY AND NYA ARE NOW THE ONLY ONES WHO REMEMBER THE EVENTS OF THIS SEASON. WOW. No one else remembers the events. Not even Wu.
Instead of S6, Nya takes Jay’s hand, Jay Airjitzus her up, and they… Um… Make out. So they are officially a couple. They do it with all the feelings of the season before them. And Dareth records and broadcasts it all. Meanwhile, the rest of the ninja stare dumbstruck at them, but are nevertheless still happy for them.
