Following the success of The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition, LucasArts has announced that the popular point-and-click adventure sequel, LeChuck’s Revenge, will also receive a HD revamp this summer. Coming to Xbox Live Arcade, Playstation Network, PC, and the iPhone, the remake will feature the same features as its predecessor: including a full high-definition makeover, complete voice-over, hint system, and seamless integration of both the new and old versions of the game allowing for players to switch between at will. Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck’s Revenge will also contain some new goodies: including interactive developer commentary and allowing for players to directly control Guybrush in lieu of the classic point-and-click interface found in the original.
“The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition really resonated with gamers young and old thanks to its classic storyline and updated gameplay features,” said LucasArts’ President Darrell Rodriguez. “We’re adding even more great new features in this sequel and can’t wait for classic Monkey Island fans and newcomers alike to experience perhaps the most beloved installment in the franchise ever.”
