Return to Monkey Island Launches Next Month

During gamescom’s Opening Night Live, a new trailer for Return to Monkey Island was revealed, announcing a release date NEXT MONTH!

Devolver Digital, Terrible Toybox, and Lucasfilm Games brought a new trailer for Return to Monkey Island to gamescom 2022’s Opening Night Live showcase. While we get a look at some of the returning locations and characters, the most important thing we learned was a release date for the game: September 19, 2022.


Revealed during today’s Gamescom Opening Night Live event, wannabe pirates can pre-order Return to Monkey Island now and begin their adventure with a highly exclusive and entirely useless Horse Armor in their inventory.

The tangled history of Monkey Island’s most famous secret leads Guybrush Threepwood -intrepid hero, leather jacket salesman and mighty pirate – to embark on a new swash-buckling adventure through the Caribbean, determined to uncover the elusive secret once and for all. No trip back to Mêlée Island would be complete without his old friends (and foes), but while Guybrush and the evil LeChuck look certain to clash on the high seas once more, a new crew of Pirate Leaders seems to have arrived to spoil the party.

Join the hilarious misadventures of Guybrush in Return to Monkey Island, the sequel penned by series originators Ron Gilbert and Dave Grossman. Brought to life with stunning new visuals by Rex Crowle (Knights & Bikes, Tearaway), an all-new score from the original composers and Dominic Armato returning as the voice of Guybrush Threepwood to lead an all-star VO cast, Return to Monkey Island will include all new intuitive controls, accessibility features and even a few jokes.


Return to Monkey Island hits PC and Nintendo Switch on September 19th.
