Ahoy there, Fancy Pants! The Return to Monkey Island is almost upon us
Terrible Toybox, Devolver Digital, and Lucasfilm Games have proclaimed that Return to Monkey Island, the next instalment of Guybrush Threepwood’s epic saga of secrecy, romance, and lactose intolerance, will raise the Jolly Roger high and set sail for fun on September 19 for PC & Nintendo Switch.
Revealed during today’s Gamescom Opening Night Live event, wannabe pirates can pre-order Return to Monkey Island now and begin their adventure with a highly exclusive and entirely useless Horse Armor in their inventory.
The website returntomonkeyisland.com is excellent – you navigate it in the style of a point-and-click adventure with dialogue choices and classic Monkey Island humour – if they can be this creative with their website, I can’t wait to see what they’ve done with the full game!
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.
Return to Monkey Island… returns… on the 19th of September 2022 for PC (Steam) & Nintendo Switch.
