I had no idea the remasters got a retail release, but it's Europe and they tend to get those, so it makes sense. If this also included Tales that'd be a pretty rad disc.

FYI, it has separate trophies, but it doesn't not have a platinum trophy.
Edit, never mind, it's a different game from Tales of Monkey Island (total of five chapters). So, it's like a sixth chapter...

Am very tempted to order this, but will they ship to the U.S? & if so, how much?

That's like 3 Zavvi CE deals you've posted, there's gotta be a better way to consolidate these into one thread, didn't we have a UK imports thread that was made for this very reason? If people are fine with it then go nuts, but personally I think making multiple posts for the same site every time you see something that piques your interest is so.... "fire thief"

I bought both games for $14.99 a year or so ago on PSN. Still haven't played through the first but it is pretty fun. Great humor, and it's cool that you can switch to the original version at anytime. Can't say I'm fond of the controls though, the game was obviously designed with a keyboard and mouse in mind and it doesn't always translate well to a dualshock (specially when you have to switch from pulling/puhsing something quickly)

The games are remastered from the originals.

You get:

The Secret of Monkey Special Edition
Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge Special Edition

You're probably thinking it's an SE in terms of extras, but it just refers to the game changes from the original 90's versions

No, it's actually the very first two Monkey Island games remastered.

Just wanted to chime in and let everyone know that this is well worth the asking price. Not a series to be missed by anyone with even a passing interest in adventure games.

And zavvi is great, prices and shipping are good considering the distance they travel.

Apparently Zavvi WAS doing free shipping to even the U.S. for a while but according to THIS thread they stopped doing that, though at the end of the thread they seem to mention them charging £.99($1.53 U.S.) for shipping.

However for $24.49 U.S. you can get this game from Zavvi's sister site TheHut and all items there are marked with free shipping(even internationally).

Thanks for the correction, I have the five chapters from PSN (haven't play them yet though) and I only count the trophies :lol: They should have included a platinum trophy on this remastered Monkey Island.

Oh nice! Definitely go that route guys. I like having them on my system as it's the type of game that I just like to pick up and play now and then.

Yeah, all of the Monkey Island games (including the 5 chapters of Tales) are quite small. 1, 2, and all of Tales probably barely goes over 1gig.

I ordered one, had no idea this was coming out anywhere as a physical release. Thanks OP!

As for the Special Edition features, according to Amazon.co.uk the disc includes cool features, as well as exclusive DLC avatar items for both the Xbox 360 and PSN versions:

  • Never-Before-Seen-Art: Concept art from the Special Edition versions of each game.
  • Animated Movie Storyboards: Storyboards and concept art from an Industrial Light & Magic exploration of a Monkey Island animated movie.
  • Avatar Goodies: Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network download codes to outfit your avatar in the best Monkey Island gear.
  • Making of webdocs and CG Trailer
  • Complete director commentary with Ron Gilbert, Tim Schafer and Dave Grossman

How is this a deal? Aren't they 10$ each on PSN?

Edit: ahh, even cheaper. Kinda silly to get this on a BR, i believe they are less than a gig combined. I deleted them a while ago but i know they were tiny.

I posted this for folks who prefer having a physical disc as opposed to just the downloadable versions.

Nice deal on this. Just a heads up, there is some possibility that this will see a US release. Per the publisher, the European release is a test to see what demand is like. Assuming it sells well, they may do a US release, although obviously that could be months away or never.

PSN releases don't generally see retail releases here in the states.

True, that's why it was reported on various news websites when this released in August that if it sells well in Europe, there is a chance it would be released here on PS3 and Xbox 360 disc.

http://www.gamepro.c...europe-for-now/

There have also been similar posts with even more specific discussions of the possibility on various adventure gaming sites. Like I said, it's possible it could still happen, but at $23, you aren't really risking much to buy it now.

We should have a thread on UK exclusives (physical vs DLC and otherwise).

This is a freaking badass release I hadn't even heard about! I LOVED the demo, but don't buy DLC. Best post on CAG I've seen in months. Thanks OP!
