Tales Of Monkey Island On XBLA A 'Huge Priority'

Right now, Tales of Monkey Island is exclusive to PC and WiiWare, but much of that's related to a technology issue on Telltale Games' end. There's only so much the studio can handle at once, but getting their Monkey Island reboot on Xbox Live Arcade is a "huge priority," according to Telltale CEO Dan Conners in an interview with Videogamer.com.

"We always want to be on every platform," said Conners. "It's just a matter of dealing with the programming needs of the channel, and the different things required to get LIVE on the channel from a business and development standpoint. It's certainly something we're interested in talking to them about. I know that the LucasArts Secret of Monkey Island remake seems to be doing really well there, so we definitely know there's a huge fan base for this franchise and this type of game that exists there. It's a huge priority for us to get there."

Tales of Monkey Island fits well on a console, too, since it adopts one of Telltale's new control schemes, which maps movement separately. It's been a controversial change, but for gamers who've checked out the WiiWare version, it feels natural. It'd work on Xbox 360, too.
