“The Walking Dead: Michonne” makes its debut on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC on February 23 with the premiere episode, “In Too Deep.” Additional episodes are slated to follow in March and April. The complete series will retail for $15.

A Telltale Games press release offered the following summary for the first episode:

In other “The Walking Dead” news, the AMC series returns for the second half of Season 6 Sunday at 9 p.m.
