Following the article on how Serious Sam HD may make an appearance on PlayStation Network, LucasArts has suggested that Monkey Island may make an appearance as well.

The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition, is currently set to release 2009, with it to launch on Xbox Live Arcade and PC. When asked why LucasArts chose Xbox Live Arcade as the launch platform, and not WiiWare or PSN, Craig Derrick (producer of the remake) replied:

“Well, we never said we wouldn’t be on Wiiware or PSN now did we? We may have another platform announcement to make very, very soon.”

Derrick went onto explain that the remake of The Secret of Monkey Island, is an “experiment to see what interest there is for these types of games and if people are interested in playing them on a console”. This means if we see it do well, gamers may see Monkey Island 2 done the same way.
