In a move which has surprised and pleased fans, Devolver Digital and Ron Gilbert have announced that Return to Monkey Island is currently in active development. The new game is a sequel to both PC point and click classics, Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge, and will arrive later this year. Platforms have not been discussed as of yet by Devolver Digital, but fingers are firmly crossed that a Nintendo Switch version is in the works. You can check out the short teaser for Return to Monkey Island in the tweet below.
One of the best PC gaming news ever.😊 (I know platforms hasn’t been confirmed yet but still) I loved the first two games (despite the non-sense ending of LeChuck’s Revenge), enjoyed the third game, and pretty much loathed the fourth and fifth games (though I liked Morgan LeFlay from Tales).
While this game is a direct sequel to the first two games, seems like Curse will still be part of the canon lore (https://twitter.com/grumpygamer/status/1511022135191384067), thats good.
