Monkey Island remakes head for EU retail

LucasArts and Activision have announced plans to release a Monkey Island Special Edition Collection, complete with the Special Editions of The Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge, and a heap of extras that may just be enough to nudge the series’ most loyal fans to repurchase.

Those extras are: environment and character concepts from the SE versions of both releases, remastered and re-recorded soundtracks, plus storyboards and concept art from an Industrial Light & Magic exploration of a never-released animated movie based on the franchise.

The collection arrives in Europe this September, on the 9th, for PS3, 360 and PC.

A North American release is still up in the air.
