If you're a fan of The Walking Dead and can't wait for another dose of Telltale's contribution to the series (or their upcoming Batman release) , then you'll be pleased to know that it's coming back soon. Yup, Clementine is back and Telltale's Walking Dead Season 3 has been announced to return sometime this Fall.
While the teaser trailer (below) doesn't give us too much, Telltale's Job J Stauffer said to IGN at E3:
"We are closer and caught up to where things are in the comic book right now and closer to where the show is."
We see Clem with an entirely new character, Javier. Javier does not currently exist in either the comic universe or the TV show. Stauffer added:
"When we first were with her, she was about 8 or 9 years old. Into Season 2, she was closer to 11 ... Now she's in her early teens and a lot of time has passed and a lot of things have happened."
Of course, right now things are little ambiguous in terms of what "closer to the show" means from Stauffer: Does that mean physically closer or chronologically closer? Both? It's hard to tell from the statement.
Although, in an interview with IGN last month, Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman mentioned:
"The way that the timeline works, Season 3 will actually be getting pretty close to where we are in the comics currently — the books that are coming out now are roughly in the same timeframe that Season 3 will be in."
In that same IGN interview, Kirkman hinted about how Telltale's Walking Dead Season 3 would tie into the comics.
Similar to the Michonne series, I think there will probably be some more comic book elements that’ll be working in, in some interesting ways. I don’t wanna reveal too much, but [it] will definitely go hand-in-hand with the comic a little bit more than Season 2 did.”
Hidden Easter Eggs in the trailer?
At E3, Stauffer later went on to mention that this innocent teaser might actually have some hidden secrets.
Have any idea what he's talking about? We've got some guesses ourselves, but sound off in the comments if you catch anything!
