http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/58892LucasArts' classic Monkey Island adventure series is to continue with Tales of Monkey Island, a new episodic series by Telltale Games, the publisher has announced.
A new edition of The Secret of Monkey Island was also unveiled, updating the series's first title with fully redrawn graphics, a re-mastered score and full voiceover.
Tales of Monkey Island continues the adventures of hapless would-be pirate Guybrush Threepwood on PC and Wii this summer with five monthly episodes. Telltale's team boasts many series veterans, including designers Dave Grossman and Mike Stemmle and composer Michael Land. Screenshots and concept art give the very first look.
Developed internally at LucasArts, Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition features the voice of Curse of Monkey Island's Guybrush, Dominic Armato. To modernise the title, each and every scene and graphic have been redrawn, and the oversized control bar has been replaced with a popup menu offering all the original SCUMM options.
Developed internally at LucasArts, Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition will be released on PC and Xbox Live Arcade later in the summer.
