Clementine will return in the second season of TellTale Games’ The Walking Dead, along with other characters whose fates remain mysterious. Slight spoilers for the first season follow.
During a panel at San Diego Comic Con, as reported by IGN, TellTale confirmed Clementine “will definitely be a part of” the next season. A teaser image was shown which reportedly had Clementine in it, sitting next to an unknown child.
The panel also said that Kenny’s ultimate fate “will be explored”.
GameInformer was also at the panel, and reports TellTale president Kevin Bruner told attendees that the second season will import choices form the first season and 400 Days DLC, despite the fact that the latter seems to be a standalone storyline.
Series creator Robert Kirkman was on the panel, and said he is just as cut about the death of characters as his fans. He’s working with TellTale to figure out if comic character cameos make sense in the second season.
The developer also had a little to share about the first season. Apparently, telltale considered adding an extra dialogue choice during the final conversation between Lee and Clementine at the series’s conclusion – “I love you” – but dropped it due to concerns it distracted from the other choices. Probably true – I certainly wouldn’t have been able to click anything else.
The second season of The Walking Dead is expected to kick off in northern autumn, with a near-simultaneous release on all platforms. The first season is available on iOS, Mac, PC, PlayStation 3, Vita and Xbox 360.
The Walking Dead Season One including The Walking Dead: 400 Days DLC episode will be coming to PS Vita on August 20.
