Monkey Island 2 Special Edition Coming in Summer, Packing Audio Commentary

By Alice O'Connor, Mar 11, 2010 5:40am PST LucasArts' hallowed adventure game Monkey Island 2 will be revamped this summer in Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge, the developer has announced.

Like LucasArts' recent revamp of the original Monkey Island, the Special Edition of Monkey Island 2 features all-new hand-drawn art, a re-mastered orchestral score, a full voice-over and the ability to switch between the original and revamped looks.


2010's revamp of Monkey Island 2 and the 1991 original.

Unlike the The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, there's now the option to have the new voices in both classic and contemporary graphics modes, a "direct control" option and in-game audio commentary from "the game's creators" in "select scenes."

Developed and published by LucasArts, Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge is scheduled for a downloadable release on PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, iPhone and iPod Touch this summer. No price was revealed, though for reference the original's revamp cost $10 on PC and Xbox 360 then $8 on iPhone.
