Telltale Games has announced that the first game of their Walking Dead "miniseries" starring Michonne will be arriving on February 23rd. The first episode is titled In Too Deep, which takes place during her absence between issues #126 and #139 of the comic book.
According to the developer, Michonne joins Pete and his crew on the sailing ship The Companion, searching up and down the coast for survivors and supplies. However, when they answer a distress call, they discover the site of a massacre. "Michonne and the crew are lead further to the floating survivors' colony of Monroe, which may just be harboring the person responsible for the carnage."
Michonne is a popular character from the graphic novel and television series, a dreadlocked survivor who prefers to work alone and is pretty handy with a sword - but is also cultured with a taste for art, especially sculptures. She will not be voiced by series actress Danai Gurira, but by Samira Wiley, best known for her role as Poussey Washington in Orange Is the New Back.
Telltale also announced that the second episode in the miniseries, Give No Shelter, will arriving in March, and the third, What We Deserve" will land in April.
