The new (and very highly rated) Monkey Island game stars none other than Neil Druckmann, the man himself has confirmed. You probably know Druckmann as the co-president of Sony first party studio Naughty Dog, and director of The Last of Us and The Last of Us: Part II.
Okay, so 'stars' is perhaps pushing it. Druckmann apparently lends his voice to an NPC, and that's about it. But still, it must be pretty cool to have a Monkey Island cameo. You may also recall that Uncharted 4 has certain...ties to Monkey Island as well — and Druckmann was writer and director for that one, too. Definitely a fan, then!
As for Return to Monkey Island, we'll hopefully get to play it on a PlayStation console at some point in the future. The long-awaited sequel is currently available on Switch and PC, and our friends over at Nintendo Life gave the bloody thing a 9/10 in their review.
It doesn't make the wait any easier...
