Rumor: Monkey Island 2: The Special Edition

According to Kotaku, Lucasarts may be giving the sequel to its bestselling game The Secret of Monkey Island the same special edition treatment it gave the first.

Last year’s The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition had the same gameplay as the original, but that gameplay was packaged with updated character art and painted backgrounds in a widescreen resolution.  In addition to visual polish, it also featured an updated score and voice acting (which was beyond the game’s capability in the original 1990 release), a new user interface, and a 3-tiered tip system.  If there were aspects of the new version that players didn’t like, they had the ability to switch seamlessly between the original game and the special edition at any point in gameplay with a single keystroke.

Kotaku’s mysterious sources say that Monkey Island 2: The Special Edition is now in the works, based on the sequel to the original Monkey Island. 

We’ve heard from sources that the game is due to be announced very soon, perhaps even next week at the Game Developer’s Conference, and that like the first game’s special edition, will contain all-new graphics and audio.

If Kotaku is right, the game will be available for Xbox, PC, iPhone, and Playstation.
