Guybrush Threepwood – intrepid hero, leather jacket salesman, mighty pirate – sets out on a new swash-buckling adventure through the Caribbean in an effort to uncover the truth behind the tangled history of Monkey Island’s most famous secret once and for all.
While Guybrush and the evil LeChuck look certain to clash on the high seas once more, other old friends and foes make their return and a new crew of Pirate Leaders arrive on the scene to spoil the party.
Guybrush’s true love Elaine Marley has turned her focus away from governing, and the intrepid hero feels “adrift and unfulfilled” after never discovering the Secret of Monkey Island. Meanwhile, young pirate leaders led by Captain Madison have dethroned 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.”
Monkey Island series originators Ron Gilbert and Dave Grossman have penned this sequel, which is brought to life through new visuals by Rex Crowle (Knights & Bikes, Tearaway) and some of the voice cast from the original Monkey Island.
Return to Monkey Island will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 19th September 2022. Those who pre-order will have the chance to “begin their adventure with a highly exclusive and entirely useless Horse Armor in their inventory.”
