The next instalment in ‘Guybrush Threepwood’s epic saga’ will sail onto Nintendo Switch and PC very soon. This news comes to us from gamescom, where it was just confirmed that Return to Monkey Island — the much anticipated Ron Gilbert title — will, in fact, launch this September.
The tangled history of Monkey Island’s most famous secret leads Guybrush Threepwood –
intrepid hero, leather jacket salesman and mighty pirate – to embark on a new swash-buckling adventure through the Caribbean, determined to uncover the elusive secret once and for all. No trip back to Mêlée Island would be complete without his old friends (and foes), but while Guybrush and the evil LeChuck look certain to clash on the high seas once more, a new crew of Pirate Leaders seems to have arrived to spoil the party.
Join the hilarious misadventures of Guybrush in Return to Monkey Island, the sequel penned
by series originators Ron Gilbert and Dave Grossman. Brought to life with stunning new
visuals by Rex Crowle (Knights & Bikes, Tearaway), an all-new score from the original composers and Dominic Armato returning as the voice of Guybrush Threepwood to lead an all-star VO cast, Return to Monkey Island will include all new intuitive controls, accessibility features and even a few jokes.
Return to Monkey Island — which is a joint project that’s being handled between Terrible Toybox, Devolver Digital and LucasFilm Games — will batten down the hatches on PC and Switch on September 19.
