E3: Secret of Monkey Island and new episodes of the Point and Click classic confirmed
Lucas Arts announced a 3D remake of The Secret of Monkey Island and the development of new episodes with Guybrush Threepwood.
Up to now only an Xbox 360 remake of the Point and Click classic The Secret of Monkey Island had been said to be possible. Now Lucas Arts announced that they don't want to port the game to the console only, but create a full remake with a new graphics engine - they even published a first trailer. But that's not all: New episodes of Monkey Island are under construction and will continue the story of the would-be pirate Guybrush Threepwood.
The new series will be called Tales of Monkey Island and contain at least five new episodes - of course LeChuck will be around again, too.
The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition, the remake of the original game, has been announced for PC and Xbox 360 while the new episodes, Tales of Monkey Island, will be published for PC and Nintendo Wii - release date is rumored to be July 4, 2009.
