"LeChucks Revenge: Special Edition is official!
New puzzles, new enemies, new hair!"
New Puzzles? What?
And... is there an announcement Three?Update by Jason:
While clarification of the features will no doubt come in the morning in the form of a press release and an official site launch, it's been confirmed that, like with Monkey Island 1
, there will be full voice acting, and the original game will be included. "Developer commentary" has bizarrely been alluded to as a bonus feature - who knows what that means, but Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert were on-site
for the announcement. Also, here's the cover art
.Further Update by ATMachine:
According to LucasArts' Twitter feed
will feature voice acting both in the high-resolution updated-graphics mode and
in the low-res, original-graphics mode. Plus, Guybrush's hairstyle has been changed, so hopefully there will be fewer complaints about that this time round.Update 3:
According to LucasArts, MI2:SE
will be available for PSN, XBLA, Mac, iPhone, and PC.Update 4: This Joystiq article
suggests that the game will be released "this summer." Also, there will be a new direct control scheme implemented in addition to the previously used point-and-click method.
Finally, it notes this about the extra content:"They've also added never-before-seen art from Peter Chan and Steve Purcell and developer commentary (!) for you Monkey Island fanboys out there (that's you)."Update 5 by Jason: Official site launched
