New Monkey Island game

LucasArts has announced the latest in the series of popular piratey adventures, Monkey Island 3! That's right this installment is to be a pre-pre-prequel, following the young Guybrush as he struggles with puberty, girls and his pirating exams.

"We want to go back and find out more about this character", explains project leader Ron Gilbert. "In the secret of Monkey Island you knew him as the boy who wanted to be a pirate now be prepared to know him as the boy next door". An ambitious release date of "tomorrow, probably" has been set, with subsequent prequels to come later on in the year.
