The Walking Dead franchise creator Robert Kirkman has verified that Clementine will be returning in Season 3 of Telltale’s video game series. Although previously it was announced that Season 3 would be coming out later this year, it wasn’t verified as to whether Clementine will be returning or not.
Fortunately, recent statements made by Robert Kirkman to IGN has confirmed the major character in the zombie apocalypse will be back (although we may be seeing an older version of her).
We’ll be checking in on Clementine again, so we’ll be seeing her, seeing where she’s at and what’s going on with her, which is going to be great.
He also explained that the season 3 will be closely related to the timeline specified in the comic books “Season 3 will actually be getting pretty close to where we are in the comics currently – like the books that are coming out now are roughly in the same time frame that Season 3 will be in.” Seasons 1 and 2 of the Telltale games took place from the beginning of The Walking Dead timeline, but the comics have since moved to around 4 years after the initial outbreak. This implies that we might see an older Clementine.
For now it wasn’t clarified as to whether Clementine will again be the major character, or just part of a new protagonist’s story-line, but soon we will find out. Season 3 is expected to be released this year.
The Walking Dead is an episodic interactive drama graphic adventure video game developed and published by Telltale Games. Based on Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead comic book series, the game is available for Android, iOS, Kindle Fire HDX, Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Unlike many graphic adventure games, The Walking Dead does not emphasize puzzle solving, but instead focuses on story and character development. The story is affected by both the dialogue choices of the player and their actions during quick time events. The choices made by the player carry over from episode to episode. Choices were tracked by Telltale, and used to influence their writing in later episodes.
