LucasArts Might Revamp More Classic Adventures

The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition could be but the first in a string of classic LucasArts adventure game revivals if the sales figures support it, reports WAtoday.

"If this sells," said LucasArts community manager Brooks Brown, "there's no one at this company who doesn't want to do these games," raising hopes for re-releases of such fine adventure titles as Day of the Tentacle and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis.


"It's a matter of showing that there's interest and this market is alive and get people as excited as possible about Monkey Island Special Edition to show that these things can make it," Brown explained.

If the redrawn graphics--with the old graphics also available--full voice-over and re-orchestrated score weren't reason enough to buy The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition when it arrives on PC and Xbox Live Arcade in summer, this surely is.
