What's more fun than a barrel of monkeys? Why, it's a boxed set of Monkey Island special editions, coming to the UK this fall.
Originally launched only as downloads, the new-and-debatably-improved release of The Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge include both the original classic versions of the games and enhanced versions with updated HD graphics, remastered music, full voiceovers, and a context-sensitive hint system. Better yet, you're able to seamlessly switch between the two at any time at the click of a button. MI2 also includes in-game audio commentary from the game's creators, Ron Gilbert, Tim Schafer, and Dave Grossman.
Not only will the Monkey Island Special Edition Collection represent the first retail versions of the games, it also promises to feature never-before-seen content, including environment and concept art, soundtracks for both games, and storyboards from Industrial Light & Magic for an unreleased Monkey Island animated movie.
Though there is no word of a release in North America at this time, the Monkey Island Special Edition Collection is currently targeting a September 9th release in the UK for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
