Monkey Island Special Edition Collection announced

Set for September, will include never-before-seen bonus content

Activision's announced the Monkey Island Special Edition Collection.


As you no doubt probably guessed, it's a collection of all the Monkey Island HD Special Editions to date.

That includes Special Editions for The Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's revenge. The collection will also feature never-before-seen bonus content from the LucasArts vault.

Included in the bonus content is environment and character concept art, remastered and re-recorded soundtracks for both games, plus storyboards and concept art from an Industrial Light & Magic exploration of a Monkey Island animated movie that was never released.

To see how good the Monkey Island Special Editions look, and for a jolt of nostalgia, have a look at the Monkey Island 2 Special Edition shots compared with the original back in March.

The Monkey Island Special Edition Collection will release on September 9 for PS3, 360 and PC in Europe.
