Telltale Games and Lucasarts have announced a joint project to bring some new life to the classic Monkey Island universe - Monkey Island Tales, a 5 chapter series of games:
Telltale's Tales of Monkey Island brings the adventures of pirate Guybrush Threepwood into a new era with an explosive storyline that becomes deeper and more entangled during the course of the five-episode saga. While battling his nemesis, the evil pirate LeChuck, Guybrush accidentally unleashes an insidious voodoo pox that threatens to transform the buccaneers of the Caribbean into unruly pirate monsters. Players will experience the humor, romance, and swashbuckling action the Monkey Island games are famous for and unravel an insidious plot which is revealed across the course of the series.
Tales of Monkey Island will be coming out on PC and WiiWare on or around July 7 (hopefully for Aussies too), so stay tuned!
Not only that, but there's a remake of the original Monkey Island on the cards - the Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition. The E3 trailer is now available
, so take a look!
