VIDEO: The Walking Dead: Michonne set to launch in 2016

Telltale’s The Walking Dead spin-off centered around fan-favourite character Michonne is now coming out in February 2016.

That’s according to a trailer released during last night’s The Game Awards where Telltale also announced it was working on a Batman title.

The Walking Dead: Michonne was announced during this year’s E3 with an initial release date of autumn 2015.

Orange is the New Black actress Samira Wiley will be playing the titular katana-wielding character. The three-part series will take place between issues #126 and #139 when Michonne disappears from the main group.

"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 co-founder anD CEO 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."
