Tales of Monkey Island charts course for UK next March
Ever wondered where Monkey Island is exactly? It'll soon be in the UK and other parts of Europe, as Lace Mamba Global today announced plans to release a DVD "Collector's Edition" of Tales of Monkey Island in March.
The celebrated five-part episodic adventure from Telltale marked the welcome (and long overdue) resurrection of the acclaimed Monkey Island franchise, reuniting gamers with the lovable-but-hopelessly-inept Guybrush Threepwood, his long-suffering wife Elaine, and the sometimes-undead pirate LeChuck. This time around, Guybrush mistakenly unleashes a pox that afflicts all pirates, and now he's got to begin a seafaring adventure (both above and below water level) to find the one artifact that can reverse it.
While no details were yet announced about the extras included in the Collector's Edition, the publisher is promising "great Monkey Island memorabilia items", along with the full season of episodes on disc. Tales of Monkey Island is currently scheduled for release on March 25, 2011 in the UK and various other European territories, along with New Zealand and Australia.
