Telltale has revealed that Clementine will be back in Season Two along with Kenny whose fate “will be explored.”
(Potential spoiler warnings!)
Telltale’s The Walking Dead was one of 2012’s more memorable story-centric releases. The success of its narrative hinged, in no small part, on the relationship between the protagonist Lee and Clementine, a young girl orphaned by the zombie apocalypse. As the game’s episodic journey progressed the two became closer, establishing a adoptive father/daughter relationship that helped the climax of the story be one of the most emotional gaming moments in years. We won’t spoil the ending, but suffice it to say that fates of some in the game were left up to players’ imaginations.
Perhaps recognizing, however, that all the gamers with imagination are busy playing Minecraft, Telltale has decided to elaborate on what happened to some of our favorite characters following the end of Season One. During a recent panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Telltale representatives revealed that Clementine “will definitely be a part of” Season Two. Likewise, the fate of everyone’s favorite frenemy Kenny “will be explored.” Little else was offered in the way of details but a teaser image was shown of what looked like Clementine sitting next to a child in the rain.
Fans of The Walking Dead have been speculating for some time now as to whether or not Season Two would follow up directly on the events of Season One, or if it would instead focus on new characters with little relation to prior events. While the picture being painted still isn’t all that clear, there are bound to be a lot of fans who will appreciate Clementine’s return, even if it amounts to little more than a cameo.
