Return to Monkey Island, which sees series creator Ron Gilbert continue the story laid out in LucasArts point-and-click classics The Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge, is launching September 19 on PC and Nintendo Switch. A collaboration between Terrible Toybox, Lucasfilm Games, and Devolver Digital, we've also got a new trailer to celebrate the release date reveal.
Which also happens to be International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
The tangled history of Monkey Island’s most famous secret leads Guybrush Threepwood - intrepid hero, leather jacket salesman, and mighty pirate - to embark on a new swash-buckling adventure through the Caribbean, determined to uncover the elusive secret once and for all. No trip back to Mêlée Island would be complete without his old friends (and foes), but while Guybrush and the evil LeChuck look certain to clash on the high seas once more, a new crew of Pirate Leaders seem to have arrived to spoil the party.
Join the hilarious misadventures of Guybrush in Return to Monkey Island, the sequel penned by series originators Ron Gilbert and Dave Grossman. Brought to life with stunning new visuals by Rex Crowle (Knights & Bikes, Tearaway), an all-new score from the original composers, and Dominic Armato returning as the voice of Guybrush Threepwood to lead an all-star VO cast., Return to Monkey Island will include all new intuitive controls, accessibility features and even a few jokes.
Getting to see a bunch of locales in this new trailer is great, and the art style is something we can dig - especially when paired with the classic Monkey Island theme and car salesman Stan's little sales pitch.
