If we think of LucasArts, not only titles of the galactic franchise come to mind, but many of the best graphic adventures of the last 20 years of the last century are signed by Americans. That is why the return to Monkey Island with Return to Monkey Island, a title that leaves little to the imagination and anticipate a clear sequel of this cult classic, it is long awaited, although its announcement took place last April 1st.
The commonly known as April Fools’ Day, which for Latin America and USA is celebrated on November 1, usually brings with it dozens of humorous publications from companies and developers looking to make players smile. Some of good taste, others that do not feel good, and some last ones that go completely unnoticed. That was what happened with this Return to Monkey Island, announced that same day on Ron Gilbert’s own blog.
A curious joke that the director of the original trilogy already anticipated on Twitter make nothing less than 9 years. For Gilbert, April Fools doesn’t make sense and he anticipated that “if I ever get to do another Monkey Island, I’ll I will announce on April 1Said and done. If we go to his own blog, last Friday, among so many jokes, Gilbert announced that he was working on a new Monkey Island, a game that today grabs headlines under the name of Return to Monkey Island.
If I ever get to make another Monkey Island, I’m going to announce it on April 1st.

Ron Gilbert has not broken his promise to announce, in case he had to, his new game the famous April Fools getting so dilute in a sea of jokes, jokes and half truths. Without a doubt, a whole class of memory and good humor to announce the return of one of the most iconic licenses of the video game.
Return to Monkey Island is directed by Ron Gilbert, who picks up the baton from the direction of the now defunct Telltale Games. At the moment, this new game does not have a release date, although both Gilbert and Devolver Digital, who distributes the title, have anticipated that it will arrive before the end this year 2022.
