Monkey Island Wiki

Return to Monkey Island is the sixth Monkey Island installment and the third chronological game in the series, developed by Ron Gilbert's Terrible Toybox and published by Devolver Digital and Lucasfilm Games. It was teased by Ron Gilbert on April 1, 2022 before being properly announced three days later on April 4, 2022. It will take place after Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge but will include references to later installments such as The Curse of Monkey Island, will feature the return of many voice actors such as Dominic Armato as Guybrush Threepwood and is due for release in 2022. Co-writer Dave Grossman, programmer David Fox, and composers Michael Land, Peter McConnell, and Clint Bajakian will also return to work on this sequel. [1]


  • While the game will begin at the Big Whoop Amusement Park, Ron Gilbert has not defined it a sequel to Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge.[2]
  • Other returning locations include Mêlée Island and Monkey Island, both featuring new areas to explore and characters to meet such as a locksmith shop.
  • Elements from later entries such as The Curse of Monkey Island will appear such as Murray. However, some plot points such as Herman Toothrot's identity as Horatio Torquemada Marley (revealed in Escape from Monkey Island) will be ignored.[3]
  • Similar to 2 and Curse, there will be two difficulties to select. An easy mode for newcomers and a standard mode for veterans.
  • There will also be a built-in hint system in order to help players who would be tempted to look up walkthroughs on the internet.
  • Several characters will reappear, with the intent as getting as much of the original voice cast, or anyone who had played a character in the past, as possible. Currently confirmed to be returning are Guybush Threepwood (Dominic Armato), Elaine Marley (Alexandra Boyd), Stan (Gavin Hammond), Murray (Denny Delk), the Melee Island Lookout (Rob Paulson), and Herman Toothrot (Wally Wingert).
  • LeChuck will not be voiced by Earl Boen, who has retired from acting but given his blessing to recast the character. It's currently unknown if the role will be played by Adam Harrington (who briefly voiced LeChuck in Tales of Monkey Island) or an entirely new voice actor.
