Telltale Games has announced a Walking Dead spin-off miniseries based around fan favourite character Michonne. The three-episode mini-series is intended to bring the game closer to the comic series, detailing Michonne's unseen story between issues 126 and 139 when she left the main group of survivors.

"Michonne's complexity and range make her an ideal lead for the compelling interactive drama fans have come to expect from Telltale," said Kevin Bruner, co-founder and CEO of Telltale Games.

"With this mini-series, players will experience Michonne's challenges first-hand, and the choices they make will shape her journey. We are incredibly honoured by the opportunity to share this untold story in The Walking Dead universe."

The mini-series sees you take the role of Michonne over three episodes. "In many ways, Michonne herself is a reflection of the world of The Walking Dead. She is brutal and cold on the outside, but deep beneath what is broken, she remains hopeful, trying to claw her way out of the darkness that surrounds her," said Robert Kirkman, original creator of The Walking Dead.

"In our effort to bring the world of the comic and the world of the Telltale series closer together, there is no greater character than Michonne to help bridge that gap."

The Walking Dead: Michonne will be available on PC/Mac, Playstation4, Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One iOS and Android devices. You will need at least the first episode of Walking Dead season two to play.
