The release date for TellTale’s Tales of Monkey Island is nearly upon us (July 7), and a new gameplay trailer was released today. The first chapter, entitled “Launch of the Screaming Narwhal”, will include the cast you know and love from the Monkey Island series.
The gameplay trailer shows the game has kept it’s humor in tact. I’m the kind of player who likes playing around with dialog to find out as much information as possible, or to simply see what kind of humorous dialog I can uncover. The banter between Guybrush and Governor Marley is a great example of why I loved the Monkey Island series.
TellTale also made sure to note the inventory system, specifically the ability to combine items. The ability to combine items can raise the difficulty of the game quite a bit as players could be spending a ton of time combining items in order to get the desired effect. At least we can say the game might take a little longer than the 2-3 hours TellTale says it could be completed in.
