Back in the 90s, audiences were introduced to Guybrush Threepwood with the cult hit Secret of Monkey Island. Now the point and click pirate adventurer is back with Return to Monkey Island, which just launched with a new trailer.

Guybrush Threepwood is Back in Launch Trailer for Return to Monkey Island

Watch this:

It’s been many years since Guybrush Threepwood was last locked in a battle of wits with his nemesis, the zombie pirate LeChuck. His true love, Elaine Marley, has turned her focus away from governing and Guybrush himself is adrift and unfulfilled, having never found the Secret of Monkey Island. Hip, young pirate leaders led by Captain Madison have shuffled 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’.

Return brings back the creator of the original game Ron Gilbert, and though it does have a whole new animated look, the spirit of the original games are still pretty much there, with the wacky pirates and absurdist humor.

Early reviews for the game have also come out, and Return to Monkey Island has been said to really lean in on the nostalgia of the past games, while at the same time introducing us to some new, younger characters who are now running the Island of Melee.

With all the praise that the original Monkey Island games got, hopefully Return won’t just be a nostalgia trip for old players, but a nice jumping off point for fans unfamiliar with Threepwood and his adventures.

Return to Monkey Island is now available for Nintendo Switch and PC.
