The sequel to The Secret of Monkey Island will also be getting the revival voodoo magic, as LucasArts confirm LeChuck's Revenge is coming.

Much like the first's Special Edition, Monkey Island 2 will have all-new visuals, audio and voice-overs added. It's for XBLA, PSN, PC and iPhone.

The PlayStation 3 is still yet to receive The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition but the studio says it will appear in "a few weeks" time, reports Eurogamer. The Secret of Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge has HD visuals, remastered audio and the same voice-over actors used for the original's makeover.

As a bonus it also packs audio commentary from Monkey Islands' creators and the option to experience the classic style of the game. It also features a triple-tier hint system.

The Secret of Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge releases on Xbox 360, PS3, PC and iPhone this summer. Have you sampled the first's HD remake from LucasArts?

Yep, sampled, completed, and loved. Looking forward to the 2nd one's remake. I have it on XBLA, but perhaps I'll grab these for iPhone instead.

The screenshot displays the true and only (to my mind) version of Monkey Island. Having played the originals I can't agree that the re-makes are any good.
