The Walking Dead: Michonne, Feb. 23

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, Vita, iOS

ESRB Rating: M for Mature

The popular Telltale game The Walking Dead comes back with a game that stars Michonne, our favorite katana wielder. The game will be more of a “mini-series” since it consists of three episodes. This should give the players their fix of a TWD Telltale game, since we don’t have much detail about season three yet. Michonne has coped with a lot of loss and regret during the zombie outbreak, so it will be interesting to see things from her point of view and learn more about this iconic character.

So many new titles out this month for all types of gamers, from casual to competitive gamers. Hope everyone has a chance to check out any of this month’s new titles!
