LucasArts announced yesterday that Sam & Max--itself once a LucasArts adventure title--developer Telltale would be reviving the classic adventure series, while LucasArts focused on revamping the game's first entry, The Secret of Monkey Island.

Tales of Monkey Island is to be released in five monthly episodes on PC, with the first due July 7, then later for the Wii as a WiiWare downloadable title. Pre-orders are now open, offering a DVD release with cover art by the wonderful Steve Purcell.
