Telltale: iPad Monkey Island episodes 'coming'; Jurassic Park and Walking Dead at E3
But 'no plans' to continue Sam & Max, Wallace and Gromit on iOS
It’s been quite some time since Monkey Island Tales 1 HD launched on iPad, and fans could be forgiven for worrying where the next episode might be coming from, if at all.
Yet, as spotted by Touch Arcade forumite SirAwesome on the studio’s forum, Telltale community manager Alan Johnson recently confirmed that "[Back to the Future] and Monkey Island episodes are certainly coming. They have not been abandoned."
Back to the Future Ep 2 HD arrived in late April, though we’re still awaiting news on the next Monkey Island Tales.
Johnson recently told Pocket Gamer "we’re planning to release the remaining four episodes of Monkey Island and the complete series of Back to the Future on iPad, but [we have] no announcements to make at this time in terms of a release schedule."
He did, however, have bad news for fans of two other Telltale franchises: "Right now there are no plans to release further episodes of Wallace & Gromit and [Sam & Max:] The Devil’s Playhouse on the iPad."
Meanwhile, Destructoid is carrying a report that Telltale is set for an E3 unveiling of a game based on zombie drama The Walking Dead, as well as Jurassic Park: The Game and its reboot of the King’s Quest franchise.
An exciting time for point-and-click fans, then - and a busy one for Telltale. We’ll bring you more news on the studio’s E3 line-up in the coming weeks.
