Return to Monkey Island official artwork for the humorous puzzle-adventure

[Update]: Return to Monkey Island has now arrived alongside some highly positive reviews.

While I'm afraid this will make some of you feel really, really old, it has been over thirty years since Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge first arrived! As such, I'm both shocked and amazed to announce that the modern sequel, Return to Monkey Island, will be launching this September 19th for PC and Switch. What a long, strange trip it's been!

Return to Monkey Island will be a collaboration between Ron Gilbert's Terrible Toybox and Lucasfilm Games, bringing with it a new art style and feel to the series while still keeping true to the original's iconic sense of humor. Naturally, this means you can expect to see a whole bunch of shenanigans involving fan-favorite characters like good ol' Murray or salesman Stan.

Rather than babble on, allow me to share with you two of the recent trailers. The first one is the freshly posted release date trailer, while the second one is the more atmospheric gameplay reveal trailer. Have a gander:

You can learn more about Return to Monkey Island, as well as keep track of any developer updates and teasers, over at the official website. Enjoy, and here's to hoping it'll manage to live up to the series' considerable legacy!
