LucasArts' classic Monkey Island adventure series is to continue with Tales of Monkey Island, a new episodic series by Telltale Games, the publisher has announced.

A revamp of The Secret of Monkey Island was also unveiled, updating the series's first title with fully redrawn graphics, re-mastered score and full voiceover, trailered below.

Tales of Monkey Island continues the adventures of hapless would-be pirate Guybrush Threepwood on PC and Wii in five monthly episodes, the first released on July 7. Telltale's team boasts many series veterans, including designers Dave Grossman and Mike Stemmle, composer Michael Land and voice of Guybrush Dominic Armato. Screenshots and concept art give the very first look.

Developed internally at LucasArts, Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition modernises the title with fully redrawn scenes and graphics, and the control bar replaced by a popup menu offering all the original SCUMM options. Armato will also voice Guybrush here.

Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition will be released on PC and Xbox Live Arcade later in the summer.
