During today’s Nintendo Direct Mini, Terrible Toybox, Devolver Digital, and Lucasfilm Games showcased the first-ever gameplay footage for Return to Monkey Island, the latest swashbuckling entry in Ron Gilbert’s beloved point-and-click adventure series.

The trailer for Guybrush Threepwood’s latest adventure does a great job of showcasing the game’s distinctive art style courtesy of Knights & Bikes and Tearaway artist Rex Crowle, along with many returning characters including the evil ghost pirate, Elaine Marley, Voodoo Lady, and even the Scumm Bar chef. And, as a real treat for longtime fans of the franchise, some of the original voice talent for these characters will be returning for an encore performance.
