With The Walking Dead: A New Frontier landing on PS4 and Xbox One today, it’s time for retailers to update their shelves with more zombie-related items – if your shelves aren’t already inundated with Switch stuff, of course.
The boxed version of the third season of Telltale’s Walking Dead series comes with a season pass disc, which includes the first two episodes of the series (Ties that Bind Parts I & II) and will give access to the upcoming episodes as they release. The third episode should launch this March but, at the time of writing, it hasn’t been dated yet. Telltale’s episodes usually release two months apart, so we should expect episodes four and five to arrive respectively by May/June and July/August.
If that’s not enough Walking Dead for you, there’s always the comic books and the TV series of course, plus Starbreeze’s upcoming survival title, Overkill’s The Walking Dead, which is still due to hit shelves later this year even though it’s been some time since we’ve heard anything new about the project.
Funko Pop! TV: The Walking Dead – Michonne
Telltale released a spin-off of its Walking Dead series, dedicated to Michonne, last year. It didn’t get a physical release, though, so retailers might want to find other ways to capitalise on the character’s popularity, such as this Funko Pop vinyl figure.
Clementine action figure (bloody)
Clementine might not be at the centre of Telltale’s Walking Dead story anymore, but she’s still a playable character during the third season’s flashback segments, so there’s still a reason to buy this bloody version of Clementine. There’s also a non-bloody version, in case you’re wondering.

The Walking Dead Hand prints mug
Mugs are always good sellers. This one reads ‘Fight the dead, fear the living’ which is kind of a good rule to live by, really.
