Sunday night, Telltale Games ran a YouTube stream in which a preview for the upcoming Michonne miniseries was featured. This morning the preview was officially made available online:
The preview is six minutes of gameplay showcasing lone wolf Michonne as she battles walkers in the woods, near a coastline. Throughout the video, she is seen not only battling the dead but also being mentally haunted by two young girls, presumably her daughters. Switching back and forth between the combat in the woods and what appears to be a flashback in an apartment with the aforementioned girls, the fighting scenes are depicted parallel to one another. It is a wonderfully scripted scene as a machete attack against a walker in the flashback sequence gets followed through with a continuation of the attack versus another walker in present-day.
Also of note is how the interface has been updated since The Walking Dead season two; button prompts look a bit different and appear cleaner on screen than they have in the past.
The preview ends with an inner-monologue of Michonne saying sometimes “I envy the dead,” implying that the troubled character fans have come to know and love, in the comic and TV series, will be on full display in the three part miniseries event.
The first episode of Telltale’s The Walking Dead: Michonne a Miniseries releases February 23.
