Telltale Games releases a launch trailer for In Too Deep, which is the first of three planned episodes of the upcoming miniseries The Walking Dead: Michonne.
While fans patiently wait for the third season of Telltale’s award-winning take on The Walking Dead, the studio is releasing a miniseries that will follow katana-wielding protagonist Michonne to keep them busy in the meantime. Aptly titled The Walking Dead: Michonne, Telltale has released a launch trailer for the game’s first episode, which is due for release on most platforms tomorrow.
The trailer offers players an idea of what to expect from In Too Deep, as it depicts Michonne struggling with flashbacks of her life from before the zombie apocalypse ravaged the world, as well as fighting to survive with a new group of survivors. Taking place between the second and third seasons of The Walking Dead from Telltale, as well as issues 126 and 139 of the comic books, The Walking Dead: Michonne is looking to show what Michonne was up to during her time off from Rick Grimes’ group.
The Walking Dead: Michonne will mark the first appearance of a major comic book character in the games since Glenn and Herschel appeared in the first couple episodes of season 1, so it will be interesting to see if it looks to further bridge the gap between the games and the comics.

As we saw from The Walking Dead: Michonne gameplay video that Telltale released last week, Michonne is not the typical Walking Dead video game hero. Past games have starred characters that are simply not as efficient of killing machines, and don’t walk around brandishing swords like Michonne. From the looks of things, it seems as though The Walking Dead: Michonne will feature quite a bit more combat elements than the previous games.
In addition to deeper combat elements, here’s hoping that The Walking Dead: Michonne also features an important story. Telltale’s previous between-seasons effort, The Walking Dead: 400 Days, was a bit lacking in significance when one looks at the big picture, so hopefully that’s not the case with The Walking Dead: Michonne.
Luckily, fans won’t have to wait long to find out. The Walking Dead: Michonne – In Too Deep will be available for most platforms tomorrow. The second episode is scheduled to follow in March, with the miniseries finale poised to launch in April. With the potential for hints as to what the third season of The Walking Dead will entail, fans of the franchise probably won’t want to miss out on this Michonne-focused adventure.
The first episode of The Walking Dead: Michonne, In Too Deep, will be available tomorrow, February 23rd, for Mac, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. It will release two days later, on February 25th for Android and iOS devices.
