Ahoy there, Fancy Pants! Terrible Toybox, Devolver Digital, and Lucasfilm Games have proclaimed that Return to Monkey Island, the next installment of Guybrush Threepwood’s epic saga of secrecy, romance, and lactose intolerance, will raise the Jolly Roger high and set sail for fun on September 19 ​ for PC & Nintendo Switch.

Revealed during today’s Gamescom Opening Night Live event, wannabe pirates can pre-order Return to Monkey Island now and begin their adventure with a highly exclusive and entirely useless Horse Armor in their inventory.

The tangled history of Monkey Island’s most famous secret leads Guybrush Threepwood - intrepid hero, leather jacket salesman, and mighty pirate - to embark on a new swash-buckling ​ adventure through the Caribbean, determined to uncover the elusive secret once and for all. No trip back to Mêlée Island would be complete without his old friends (and foes), but while Guybrush and the evil LeChuck look certain to clash on the high seas once more, a new crew of Pirate Leaders seem to have arrived to spoil the party.

Join the hilarious misadventures of Guybrush in Return to Monkey Island, the sequel penned by series originators Ron Gilbert and Dave Grossman. Brought to life with stunning new visuals by Rex Crowle (Knights & Bikes, Tearaway), an all-new score from the original composers, and Dominic Armato returning as the voice of Guybrush Threepwood to lead an all-star VO cast., Return to Monkey Island will include all new intuitive controls, accessibility features and even a few jokes.


Happy Gaming!

Great news. This is releasing sooner then I expected. I've never played any of the Monkey Islands and might give this one a shot. Where's the Demo Terrible Toybox??


It is never too late!

The Monkey Island games are some of the best Adventures ever made, in my opinion yay
[And with versions to be had from GOG for playing on modern machines, too. Just wonderful !!]

Am hoping this new one, so many years later, will also hit the mark yes

Great news indeed happydance
Orion, the Special Editions are excellent 'reworkings' and well worth checking out. You can play exactly as they were, or switch to a spruced up version in terms of visual and audio, and the extras can be extra good grin


Quantity has a quality all of its own

Love that character Ana, really cool! Like I have said I have never played the Monkey Islands so I don't know who this character is. I have prepurchased just so I can get the "useles Horse Armor" in my inventory. They will probably offer the usual 10% off promotional but hey!.....you can't expect to get "useless Horse Armor" for free now can you

Very nice 5 min Preview Video -- "Everything You Need to Know

There's a whole thread here on GOG where people are discussing this.

Thanks for that link, Marian thumbsup

Not looking too likely that the game will come to GOG any time soon, it seems to me.

However, I won't be reinstalling Steam on any of my machines - even for a Monkey Island Adventure !!

I am not inclined to do so either, Mad. I will wait and see what develops. It may not be on release day, but I think it will show up on GOG eventually. They have all the other Monkey Island games.

Well, I use Steam all the time but I have all the other Monkey Island games from GOG and I also think it will show up there one day so I'll be waiting. I haven't played any of them yet anyway so it's not like I need it right away wink
