Experience Dinky Island once more with Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck’s Revenge

It turns out the rumors are true, as LucasArts has sent word that Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge will be receiving the same special edition face lift that LucasArts gave The Secret of Monkey Island this past summer, but LeChuck’s Revenge will be getting a few very welcome extra tweaks and bonuses. The most important gameplay modification being the player’s new ability to assume direct control over the now bearded Guybrush Threepwood, which should make traversing the quest for Big Whoop a little more manageable. Also, on top of the newly added voice acting and remastered graphics & sound effects, this special edition will also include a full in-game audio commentary with the game’s creators.

LeChuck’s Revenge is without question my favorite entry in the whole series, primarily due to the inclusion of what might be the single greatest ending in videogame history, and you can relish in its lunacy when the game arrives on the PS3, 360, PC, iPhone, and iPod Touch sometime this summer.
