Return to Monkey Island - Follow-up to a classic Adventure series is coming September 19th!

The Secret of Monkey Island developed by Lucasfilm Games (later LucasArts) was originally released in 1990 and created by now industry legends Ron Gilbert, Tim Schafer, and Dave Grossman. It was a game that has lived on the hearts of many with its fantastic pirate charm. Well if you remember that fine game, you'll be pleased to know that the upcoming sequel of 'Return to Monkey Island' is not only coming September 19th, but a brand new teaser trailer has also been revealed!

As we said before : It’s been many years since Guybrush Threepwood was last locked in a battle of wits with his nemesis, the zombie pirate LeChuck. His true love, Elaine Marley, has turned her focus away from governing and Guybrush himself is adrift and unfulfilled, having never found the Secret of Monkey Island. Hip, young pirate leaders led by Captain Madison have shuffled the old guard from power, Melee Island has taken a turn for the worse, and famed businessman Stan has been imprisoned for ‘marketing-related crimes’.

Banter with old friends and new faces on familiar islands, take to the high seas and explore the new and unknown as you work your way out of tough predicaments, try to solve clever puzzles, bizarre situations, and devastating ripostes are all that stand between Guybrush and glory. So yes if you are a fan of the Adventure genre and loved playing The Secret of Monkey Island all those years ago on the Amiga, PC or other, you may just like this upcoming game of 'Return to Monkey Island', which is available for pre-order and release date of September 19th... International Talk like a Pirate Day yarrrr!

    1. Boy, I hope the game retains at least a small whiff of the older games. Where not everything was goofy *all* the time. Yes, I welcome the funny, I welcome the laughs, but the game had all that in the situations. And dialogs. But it wasn't ... the main feature. It was still first and foremost a game about adventure, pirates, daring, and vodoo!

  4. Lots of people have been disappointed by the art style, I wish I had something positive to say about it but I'm afraid I don't and so it's a pass from me.

  6. Obviously RTMI is not designed to suit the taste of most hardcore retro pixel-art veterans. But have you seen the familiar flawless animation of Stan's check pattern suit on the developer's homepage? Hey, that should convince even the last critc that MI is working very well in revolutionary vector design. I'm quite sure, Ron won't screw it up.

  8. If the rest of the jokes are as stale and badly delivered as the pro forma horse armor quip (wich never halts them from continuing to advertise the pre-sale anyway) even Planet Threepwood will feel more authentic than this. "Deep Inside the Marketing Department" indeed...

  9. I don't hate the art style and we already had far uglier Guybrushs (remember Telltale's Monkey Island? Barf!)

  10. Why do they look like that? It's horrible. I was so looking forward to this too.

  12. I cannot agree there, Guybrush looks like trailer trash now not a cabin boy, the new art style blows.

  13. I really like the art style! :) I'm glad they have dared to try something new, which still clearly respects the old. Really looking forward to play this game!

  14. I am no fan of the graphics style either and it is the reason I sadly will not buy this game - it is just too weird to look at and I would have hoped for a modernized pixel-like style. I am in no doubt though that the gameplay will be great, but for me I need both gameplay and graphics to buy this.
