The Monkey Island Special Edition titles brought two of the most beloved games of all time to a whole new audience reared on HD consoles -- and also proved that the point and click adventure was far from dead. Now, LucasArts is bringing the two games to retail for those who haven't yet had the chance to play them, or those who prefer to have a physical product to a downloadable title.
The new pack comes with some extra bonus content, too -- besides the games, the second of which features audio commentary from Tim Schafer, Ron Gilbert and Dave Grossman, the package will come with concept art for the Special Edition versions of the games as well as a copy of the games' remastered and rerecorded soundtracks. Perhaps most interesting for fans of the series, though, will be the storyboards and concept art for a canned Industrial Light & Magic-produced Monkey Island movie that never got off the drawing board.
LucasArts and its European distributor Activision have confirmed the title for a September 9 release in Europe for the 360, PS3 and PC. We've contacted LucasArts and Activision to see if the collection is coming to the States, too, but haven't heard back from them as yet. We'll update this story if and when we get confirmation one way or the other.
