"He's been through a lot and he is central to this story. He is absolutely important to what's going on," Telltale's Job Stauffer told the website, adding that Javier and Clementine "have a lot of common goals, if not a lot of common enemies."

Based on the long-running Skybound/Image Comics series by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard, Telltales "The Walking Dead" debuted in 2012 with a mostly original cast of characters. The third season is set to launch this fall.
