Monkey Island 2 Special Edition; Revenge is a Dish Best Served Undead

Monkey Island is a series that has always held a special place in my heart, as it was one of the first point-and-click adventure games that I truly fell in love with. Unfortunately, the genre has fallen by the wayside in recent years. Developers have shifted their focus to first-person shooters, mmorpgs and casual gaming. We can’t really blame the developers, though — World of Warcraft and Bejeweled practically print money. Adventure games, on the other hand, don’t come with a monthly fee. As a result many developers lack the incentive to develop the games we all grew to love so many years ago. Thankfully, the guys over at Lucas Arts haven’t forgotten us just yet.

Following the success of last year’s The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, Lucas Arts has decided to release a special edition of the 1991 sequel Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge. Like the last remake, this one will feature updated visuals, newly recorded audio — including a brand new score — as well as an art gallery. Having played the previous remake, I can assure you that the game will maintain the charm and wit of the original, and as an added bonus, will feature the abillity to switch between the classic and remastered version of the game with the click of a button, mid-game.

The game should retail for around $10, and will be available on July 7th for Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Mac OSX, and iPhone/iPod Touch.
