LucasArts got slammed by fans of its adventure games when the publisher decided to discontinue their adventure game line. Today LucasArts announced plans to return to one of their most popular adventure game series, Monkey Island. Our sister site Joystiq has posted up word that the the company will release Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition , a downloadable graphical revamp of the game. It will also have new voiceover tracks and a new musical score.
But that's not all. LucasArts has also teamed up with Telltale Games (made up of a number of former LucasArts adventure game creators) to release an all new five part downloadable episodic Tales of Monkey Island game. No release date for that game was announced.
