Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 2 on PC Tomorrow, WiiWare "Soon After"
Posted by Marcel van Duyn
The second part of Guybrush Threepwood's new adventure is right around the corner.
If you've bought and played the first chapter of Tales of Monkey Island and are itching to find out what happens after the cliffhanger you were shown at the end, your wait is almost over. The Siege of Spinner Cay, the second chapter in the series, will be released on PC tomorrow, with a WiiWare release following "soon after."
In the second episode, Guybrush must locate three mystical artifacts to figure out the location of La Esponja Grande, a legendary giant sea sponge, which is said to cure people of any diseases. Quite handy, as the entire Caribbean has been struck with a voodoo pox! You'll also have to work together with an unlikely ally in order to achieve all of this.
Despite Telltale's promises, the first episode was not exactly the same on WiiWare as on the PC - It occassionally suffered from bad framerates and most of the dialogue sounded very fuzzy for some reason. Telltale has said that they've been looking for a way to fix this for the WiiWare release of the second chapter, but they haven't said if a solution has already been found. Fingers crossed!
Telltale has also revealed that the first chapter of Tales of Monkey Island is their best-selling game yet - No real surprise, considering it's a new game in a highly respected LucasArts adventure game series!
