Wherever you look, there is a lot of praise for Return to Monkey Island (also from our side) and yet one point of criticism keeps popping up: no German voice output! If this has kept you from buying so far, you will surely be happy about this news: already on 8. November Return to Monkey Island will receive a German dubbing as a free update. But it’s already clear that we can expect good quality, because Norman Matt will once again play the role of Guybrush Threepwood. The professional narrator has already been used in Curse of Monkey Island, Escape from Monkey Island and Tales from Monkey Island and is correspondingly popular with fans. In the English original, Guybrush has been spoken by Dominic Armato since 1997, who was of course also on board again in Return to Monkey Island. You can see how good that sounds in our test video.
Along with the German voiceover, Return to Monkey Island will also be released for PS5 and Xbox Series S/X. The game will also be included in Game Pass when it launches on November 8th. Interesting: The PS4 and Xbox One get nothing! The consoles would have had no problems with the graphically simple 2D adventure. It is not yet clear whether Terrible Toybox will also serve the last-gen consoles in the future. In any case, the Switch masters the game effortlessly.
