Monkey Island 2 Swashbuckling its Way to PSN

The Game Development Conference is just around the corner and the rumor mill is hard at work churning out plenty of juicy tidbits.  This latest one comes by the way of Kotaku and mentions that LucasArts will be putting out a special edition release for Monkey Island 2 and unlike the first, this one will be seeing a PS3 release.

The quote from Kotaku reads:

“We’ve heard from sources that the game is due to be announced very soon, perhaps even next week at the Game Developer’s Conference, and that like the first game’s special edition, will contain all-new graphics and audio.

Unlike the first game, however, this one will be reaching a few more consumers, with versions planned for not just the Xbox 360, PC ad iPhone (like Monkey Island), but the PlayStation Network as well.”

For those who have not had the chance to try out the series, Monkey Island follows the misadventures of Guybrush Threepwood as he tries to become the most notorious pirate of the Caribbean.  Lets hope that this rumor is true as the Monkey Island games were a blast to play and would be a welcome addition to the PSN library.
