Because LucasArts never flogs a dead horse just once, they’ve announced that The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition is now available on multiple platforms. This is good news for the young whippersnappers who weren’t born yet when this first hit.
LucasArts is proud to announce that this week we’ll be celebrating all things Monkey Island with brand-new releases for The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition. Back in March we promised that the game would be seeing releases on new platforms, and now we’re happy to say that those releases are now starting to hit!
On Monday, our partners at Aspyr released the game for Mac on their GameAgent.com platform. Mac gamers young and old can now download the game at www.gameagent.com/store/aspyr/DisplayHomePage.

The PlayStation Network will also see a major new update in Europe. Now, European gamers will get a chance to purchase and wear a ton of new The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition avatar costumes, furniture, as well as the ominous and foreboding Ghost Pirate Ship personal space.
Darrell Rodriguez, President of LucasArts, adds, “It truly has been a delight to be able to bring an entirely new audience to the classic Monkey Island franchise twenty years after the game’s first release. The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition has been a hit with gamers both young and old with its classic gameplay, timeless humor, and memorable characters.”
