LucasArts award winning sequel to their award winning remake of their original award winning game is coming very soon. I think i said that right . . . holy shit, I did! Anyhow, this is big news for all of us old LucasArts adventure game fans who have been yelling at the top of our lungs for them to remake more of their classic games. The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition was a huge success, and the sequel, LeChucks revenge, is not only regarded as the best game int he Monkey Island series, but is also getting lots of new features for it’s own special edition.
All versions of the game will cost $10, and if you ask us, you’re getting a lot for the money.
In this Special Edition, Monkey Island has once again been brought into the 21st century. This obviously includes high-def art, remastered music, a sweet hint system, streamlined interface, fully voiced dialogue and now, a developer’s commentary mode. However the coolest thing about these LucasArts remakes for me has been the ability to switch between the new version and the original 8-bit version at any time. Not sure what I mean? Check this out.
So ya see, it’s kind of like that . . . but better.
Oh alright, you twisted my arm! Watch a more in-depth look at the making of this remake below!
See you on Monkey Island July 6/7th!!
