Monkey Island 2 remake this summer

LeChuck Revenge for PC, PSN, XBLA.

LucasArts will adapt The Secret of Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge for PC, PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade and iPhone this summer.

But poor old PS3 still hasn't received The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, although the publisher said this will arrive in "a few weeks".

The Secret of Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge returns to life with high-definition graphics, remastered sound and a triple-tiered hint system. Guybrush can be controlled directly rather than clicked around, too.

On top of that will be audio commentary from the game's creators plus the ability to switch between original and revamped presentations. New voice acting by the usual cast will be present in both versions.

Last summer's Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition proved that the old LucasArts adventure remains as essential today as it was a million years ago at release.

Our Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition review will tell you why.
