LucasArts to continue to do awesome things? 02 Jun, 2009, 01:11 / 14 comments

So, Mixnmojo was actually able to report the announcement of Monkey Island 5, and not as a brilliant April Fool's joke. Clearly, LEC has to be applauded. But is their recent respect for their back catalog a one-time thing, or a sign of things to come?

The answer can probably be found in LEC's Monkey Island press release, a document you should read if for no other reason than that you actually exist in a world where you can read a Monkey Island 5 press release. A paragraph of particular note:
These efforts are just the start of LucasArts' new mission to revitalize its deep portfolio of beloved gaming franchises. In addition to these Monkey Island projects, LucasArts recently revealed that the classic adventure game Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis (originally released in 1992) is included as an unlockable bonus in the Wii version of Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings, set to be released on June 9. Additional announcements are forthcoming.
I know I should know better than to so quickly let LucasArts back into my life after all those betrayals, but damn if she isn't looking smoking hot in that lingerie.

    It does sound like they're going to continue doing this... maybe at least additional Special Editions are forthcoming?

    A remake / update / new X-Wing game from Larry Holland is that teensy bit closer.
