New Monkey Island is coming, but what else?

New Monkey Island is coming, but what else?

Oh LucasArts you tease! LucasArts have announced on their twitter feed that they’ve got a big exciting announcement coming tomorrow, relating to their back catalogue of frankly, awesome games! As to what… well, they aren’t giving much away…  We know they’ve got Telltail doing new Monkey Island adventures. We also know they’ve got a newly polished anniversary special edition release of the classic Secret of Monkey Island. So what else could it be?

Well, it could be a re-release of the other Monkey Island games, but (as awesome as that would be) i don’t think that would have them as excited as they seem to be.

Other possibilities would be a scrubbed up version of Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis would also be very cool, but I would have thought they’d wait till after the new Monkey Island stuff is out before announcing that.  Although, that would tie in with the release of Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings.

X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter maybe?

Full Throttle 2 would be another possibility – But with Tim Schafer now over at Double Fine, and working on Brütal Legend that would seem to be an odd choice to bring out another biker based game running pretty much in competition with a biker game made by Full Throttles original creator.

Day of the Tentacle or Grim Fandango sequels also would be great… but of course, there is that other Lucas franchise… but it kinda depends how ‘old school’ they’re going. New X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter game maybe? Or even a Jedi Knight sequel? Humm…

Let’s face it, it’s not like LucasArts are short of awesome games in their back catalogue to revive. Whatever it is it’s got the folk over at the LucasArts twitter feed really REALLY excited, so i’m really REALLY intrigued! I’ll let you know when we find out tomorrow!
