Double Fine Announce 'Day of the Tentacle Special Edition'

Day-of-the-Tentacle-Special-Edition-AnnouncedMere weeks after the creators of Maniac Mansion Ron Gilbert & Gary Winnick launched a Kickstarter to fund their point and click revival Thimbleweed Park, LucasArts veteran Tim Schafer has announced that an adventure classic is due for a remake. The critically acclaimed Day of the Tentacle is being remastered for modern platforms.

At the recently held PlayStation Experience keynote, Schafer first revealed that the previously announced remastered version of Grim Fandango would be hitting both the PS4 and PS Vita this coming January. Featuring the original game intact as we remember it, this updated port will included remastered audio, high definition visuals, and an updated lighting system to bring the 1998 up to date.

Before Double Fine left the stage though, it was revealed that Day of the Tentacle would also be receiving a Special Edition remake - similar to the treatment both Monkey Island adventures saw on modern platforms.
