We’ll take any bit of information on Return to Monkey Island that we can get, hence today’s update. A quick bit of footage from the game has been released, and it features Guybrush Threepwood walking through town in a nighttime setting. Check out the quick clip above.

Return to Monkey Island is an unexpected, thrilling return of series creator Ron Gilbert that continues the story of the legendary adventure games The Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge developed in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games.

It’s been many years since Guybrush Threepwood was last locked in a battle of wits with his nemesis, the zombie pirate LeChuck. His true love, Elaine Marley, has turned her focus away from governing and Guybrush himself is adrift and unfulfilled, having never found the Secret of Monkey Island. Hip, young pirate leaders led by Captain Madison have shuffled the old guard from power, Melee Island has taken a turn for the worse, and famed businessman Stan has been imprisoned for ‘marketing-related crimes’.

Super excited for this game! I was happily surprised when it was first announced, and thrilled when it was confirmed for Switch. I know the art style is different from the original two games, but it doesn’t deserve all the hate it’s been getting. For a time Ron Gilbert said he wouldn’t show any more footage of the game because he was so hurt by all the hatred out there. He seems to have changed his mind, but still he should not have to endure this.
Unfortunately, I’m saddened but not surprised by this kind of vitriolic behavior online.

Looks like the art style used for Guacamelee, which is also awesome. Hope the story is as awesome as the episodic content on Wii.
