LucasArts has revealed that the sequel to The Secret of Monkey Island, Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge, will be landing in the App Store in all of its special edition glory. After the huge success that was The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition for the iPhone and iPod touch, this decision was probably rather easy.
The game will once again follow the misadventures of the wannabe pirate Guybrush Threepwood, only this time he will be trying to find a mysterious treasure and win back Elaine’s love. Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge is widely considered by critics to be one of LucasArts’ best adventure games.
Monkey Island 2: Special Edition, just like The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, will feature an updated art style, voice-overs by the original cast, re-mastered music, and apparently a few new puzzles and enemies.
The game will be available this summer for a variety of platforms, including the iPhone and iPod touch.
Check out Kotaku’s gallery of images to see how the new art style compares to the classic version. It’s kind of neat to see how far we have come.
