An exciting bit of news for fans of the Monkey Island games -- so exciting, in fact, that I can hardly believe I managed to fit it all into the headline. I have just received word via carrier pigeon from our main man at GDC, Brad, that Monkey Island: Special Edition is hitting PlayStation Network and Mac.
Furthermore, The Secret of Monkey Island 2: Special Edition is a thing that's going to happen. It seems Brad could only fit so much on the little paper that was attached to the courageous bird, unfortunately.
Here's what we got to work with: direct control of Guybrush Threepwood, never-before-seen art, developer commentary, new hair for the leading man (presumably better-looking hair), and it's releasing on Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network, PC, Mac, and iPhone this summer. Hot!
