Fellow survivors, we’ve been hard at work on the latest installment of The Walking Dead here at Telltale HQ, and today we’re excited to share some news on its debut, as well as when you’ll be able to get a much closer look before its launch….
The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Miniseries will premiere its first of three episodes, ‘In Too Deep,’ this February 23rd on PC/Mac from the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital distribution services, the PlayStation®Network for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, the Xbox Games Store for Xbox One® and Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, followed by a release on compatible iOS devices via the App Store, and Android-based devices via Google Play and the Amazon App Store starting February 25th. The second episode in the miniseries, 'Give No Shelter,’ will follow in the month of March, and conclude with the third episode, 'What We Deserve,’ in April. All three episodes in the miniseries will be available for purchase at the cost of $14.99 USD or equivalent when the first episode debuts, including access to the second and third episodes as they become available.
In this premiere episode, 'In Too Deep,’ Michonne joins Pete and his crew on the sailing ship The Companion as they cruise the coast for survivors and supplies. When a desperate signal for help draws them to a scene of horrific massacre, Michonne and the crew are lead further to the floating survivors’ colony of Monroe, which may just be harboring the person responsible for the carnage.
The Walking Dead: Michonne - A Telltale Miniseries stars the iconic, blade-wielding character from Robert Kirkman’s best-selling comic books, portrayed in-game by award-winning actress Samira Wiley (Orange is the New Black). Haunted by her past, and coping with unimaginable loss and regret, the story explores Michonne across a three episodes of miniseries event. Players will dive into the mind of Michonne to discover what took her away from Rick, Carl, and the rest of her trusted group… and what brought her back.
Ahead of its release, fans are invited to get an exclusive extended preview of the first episode of the series onYoutube.com/TelltaleGames this Sunday February 14th at 8:30pm EST / 5:30pm PST. The development team will introduce the series allowing fans to experience the first five minutes of the premiere episode, exploring Michonne’s struggle to remain among the living while being haunted by her past.
Michonne has always been among our favorite and most complex characters in the world of Robert Kirkman and Skybound’s comic series, which just celebrated its 150th issue this past month! You don’t need to have read the comics to enjoy the miniseries, nor do you need to have played the past two seasons of the game, but the comics are at the heart of the universe and we certainly hope you’ll be inspired by Michonne to dive into the series. (Seriously, the comics are really f-cking good! If you haven’t read them yet, what are you waiting for?)
The Telltale team has been very hard at work in the world of the undead, and while a full third season of The Walking Dead is also currently deep in development, we don’t expect to be able to share any details until after this miniseries concludes. What we can say is that we expect this to be our biggest year for The Walking Dead we’ve ever had, and we’re excited to share this decidedly very different story with Michonne that will explore some themes we’re truly excited about bringing to the interactive space. So tune into our Youtube channel this Sunday for an extended preview, and set your sights on February 23rd for the long-awaited return of The Walking Dead!
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…
Now that Manifest Destiny #6 is out, the first arc of one of the most interesting comics to debut recently has wrapped up. Matthew Roberts’ (shinolahead) art in this book is nothing short of breath-taking and if you’re not already sold just from the images above, the story has the potential of being epic in scope and quality.
In Manifest Destiny, Lewis & Clark set out on their Westward journey across America, but the new world has more than just amber waves of grain waiting for them. America turns out to be a land inhabited by magic and monsters, and it clear that the captains of this journey are keeping something from their crew.
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!
Are you kidding me? Are you FUCKING kidding me?
Can someone PLEASE tell me that this is a fucking joke? That this figure is just a prototype and not the actual thing? Because it CAN’T be true that this will be the actual skin color of the figure. LEE EVERETT IS BLACK. HE’S ALWAYS BEEN BLACK. YOU CAN’T EVEN ASSUME THAT HE IS WHITE (unlike Clementine in S1)!?
Why is it that good fictional characters like Lee always tend to get whitewashed? Even though there is NO WAY you could ever assume he’s white. Why can’t we have a BLACK LEE EVERETT as a figure?! Morgan, Tyreese, Bob and even T-Dog have their own figures with their ACTUAL SKIN COLOR so WHY THE FUCK can’t Lee have that too?! Whitewashing is a serious problem and this is whitewashing at it’s finest.
I’m so pissed off right now. And besides the skin color, his face doesn’t even LOOK like Lee… The other features are actually really cool but I just can’t get over his skin tone and his face.
Rant over. For now at least.
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.
Did I miss anything? Please add if I missed anything.
