Grim Fandango? DOTT? Full Throttle? :captnkill:
LucasArts has been pumping out quite a few Star Wars and Indiana Jones titles the past few years, ok Fracture being an exception, but with the recent Monkey Island announcements it seems the once adventure focused publisher/developer is looking into reviving old classics. On Monday LucasArts plans to announce something "amazing" and "awesome news for our old school fans." Nothing but teasing so far, but we'll have more for you after the weekend.

Full Throttle would be awesome and hopefully it's not going to be 3D, unless they do it right. I'm looking forward to their big announcement.

Maniac Mansion is getting a remake with the same engine that powers the new Monkey Island, will also feature a full voice cast too. Can't wait.

They will probably announce some great old school game remake, then later on say it's only for consoles.

If its tie fighter then it should be on the PC as well. After all, that game was pretty much a proper star wars flight sim.

I'm hoping for Grim Fandango...

With the success of TellTale's 3D adventure games it seems pretty logical for them to try to bring back one of their own.

MI2 SE would make some sort of sense.
To have been worked at in parallel with MI SE.

There's been a small update to this news...

It doesn't have to do with any specific intellectual property...

So... maybe they're just announcing that they're going to be doing adventure games again.

Might see a new market in casual adventure games. Gonna steal Telltales Thunder?

That really sends my brain twirling... not a specific IP... old fans will be happy... hmmm.

If they are getting into adventure games again, I don't think they would license Monkey Island out to Telltale... also, it would make more sense for them to make that decision AFTER they see the sales of the new Monkey Island series and remake.

The only guess I have right now is perhaps rereleases of more old games... that would cover multiple IPs and please more fans... a collection of old games on PC maybe, or more remakes on console. Again though, I would think they would wait for sales on MI:SE before deciding that.

I want to know!

Or KOTOR.

But thats not going to happen... the third part is the MMO. =\

Maybe they're releasing all of their old games on Steam, with updates to work on newer systems?

That'd be nice...
