Rumor: Monkey Island 2: Special Edition Announcement?

Published 5 years ago by

Monkey Island 2 Special Edition

Ahoy there me hearties! Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Walk the Plank! Walk the… Oh screw it.

According to Kotaku, sources are claiming that, due to the incredible success of The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge will also be seeing a ‘Special Edition’ re-release, complete with updated visuals and audio soundtracks. These sources also claim that an announcement will be happening very soon, even as early as GDC next week (March 9-13).

What’s that? You’ve noticed this article has a PS3 tag, but also know that the first title never came to PS3? Fear not, Game Rant PS3 fans, for it appears that, this time around, LucasArts has remembered you in its development process and will be releasing Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge: Special Edition (otherwise known as Monkey Island 2: Too Many Colons) on the Playstation Network, along with the Xbox 360, PC, and iPhone platforms, which received the release of the original. Sorry, Wii owners. No news yet on whether Guybrush Threepwood will be swashbuckling his way near you soon!

Having never played the series when it was first released back in 1990 (heck, I wasn’t even born yet!), these special editions are a godsend. Funny, clever and downright fun-to-play, The Secret of Monkey Island was one of my favorite games of last year; here’s hoping the sequel lives up to it!

Have you played LeChuck’s Revenge before? Are you excited for the re-release? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. Man I hope so, the SOMI SE was damn good (although, admittedly, I still prefer the original, warts and all).

    And LeChucks Revenge is the best of the series (even with the super ambiguous ending).

  2. This is a immediate purchase. Excellent game, easily the best of the series.

  3. Day one purchase for me. Hopefully we'll see some more classic LucasArts adventures getting the Special Edition treatment. Full Throttle anyone??
