Return to Monkey Island Physical Box Release

Recommended Posts

Today is the last day to buy/pre-order it from Limited Run Games.

I would like to get the Switch physical and the PC big box, but it's 174 dollars to buy and ship to Finland. Just insane...


Oh how I wish they would have instead used some European located company for European customers instead base everything globally to LRG which is known to be super expensive.

Any idea how long it will take for them to produce and ship the games? This is not supposed to be a normal LRG release so maybe they could be faster than to wait for over one year before it's shipped?

Same here. $90 for collector’s edition $40 for shipping and add 25%vat

so $163 just for the one. Not worth it

Where do you live for getting that 40$ shipping?

I hope it has an excerpt from Guybrush’s memoirs on the back of the box!

I think tvtropes has it right: Guybrush's trailer quote has got to be our excerpt! I know you mean on the box itself (which I doubt would happen), but as someone who's only owned the Curse and Escape versions of these quoted boxes, I just like to know they sort of exist in some form.



"Three small trials and you're a pirate like us." Fair enough. If only I could stomach the foul brew these scurvy seadogs swilled, the rest would be easy. How could I have known I'd meet a powerful and beautiful woman with a jealous suitor too stupid to realize he'd been dead for years? And how can I crawl through this great stone monkey to find a man who walks three inches above the ground and sets fire to his beard every morning?


I thought I'd killed the Ghost Pirate LeChuck for good. Wrong. How many times can that bloated old fool die? Other pirates tell me there's no escape. Legend has it that the treasure of Big Whoop holds the key to great power... I must find it before LeChuck finds me.

I've sailed the seas from Trinidad to Tortuga and I've never seen anything like it! The engagement ring I gave Elaine has a terrible pirate curse on it. LeChuck is behind it, I'm sure. I should have known that nothing good could come out of that evil zombie's treasures. And if that's not bad enough, the clairvoyant I met in the mangrove swamp told me that if I am to break the curse and save Elaine, I will have to die!


Spitting the sand of Monkey Island from my mouth, I began to wonder if the life of a mighty pirate was all it was cracked up to be. If only I'd chosen a different path, LeChuck might still be dead, and the mystery of the Ultimate Insult might have remained an enigma. If I'd never picked up a sword, the grog-swilling pirates of the Tri-Island Area might be unthreatened by the twin forces of gentrification and demonic heckfire. If only...


I've sailed the seven seas in search of archaic charms and curiosities; I've raided the sunken smelters of Popgowatu for the finest of tools; and I've worked by candlelight in the yawing quarters of my ship to forge together the raw materials into the finest of blades, all to finally put a bloody end to my undead rival and stealer of spouse. It is now that this sword is more than just a sword; it is a covenant! I'm not exactly sure what that word means, but it sounds right. The seas will sleep soundly tonight, for LeChuck's time is up!


Pirating is in my blood, like adrenaline or stale grog. I've been in enough scraps to fill a dozen scrapbooks. I've got stories about ships, fights, love, treasure, betrayal, and root beer. But how about one that has all of the above? My name is Guybrush Threepwood, and this is a story about the time I finally found the Secret of Monkey Island.
