Take a hint, there's some spoilers here!

Just last week, we heard first details about the hint system offered in Return to Monkey Island. Today brings us actual gameplay footage of the hint system in action. As long as you don’t mind some minor spoilers, give the video above a watch to see what the hint system has to offer.

Return to Monkey Island includes a hint book that players can pick up early, and it will give you tailor-made clues as to where to go next/what to do based on everything you’ve already done. In other words, the hint book keeps track of your progress and guides you specifically to what should be next. It’s certainly a more personal approach, and now you can get a tip on your next step without stepping away from the game.

Of course, some players would rather hop online anyway to get a step-by-step list of what needs to be tackled, but for those who want to retain some of the personal satisfaction of solving a puzzle with just a gentle nudge, the hint book is there for you.

That’s a good quality of life feature. While I love figuring out the puzzles myself, some of them in Monkey Island games can be very obscure so a poke in the right direction is nice.
