Briareos was one of several readers to write with news that TellTale Games, along with LucasArts, will be bringing new Monkey Island games later this year
. Tales of Monkey Island
will be a series of episodic games released for PC and WiiWare in the coming months, and The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition
will be a remake of the original 1990 game, available on the PC and Xbox Live. A trailer is available
for the former, and this is what the press release says about the latter: "The development team at LucasArts is bringing the game into the modern era with all-new HD graphics, a re-mastered musical score, full voiceover, and an in-depth hint system has been added to help players through the game's side-splitting puzzles. Purists will also delight in the ability to seamlessly switch between the updated HD graphics and the original's classic look." Grumpy Gamer has a nostalgic look back
at the franchise.
