Nintendo debuted a new trailer for Return to Monkey Island during its Partner Direct today.

Coming out at an unspecified time later this year, Return to Monkey Island is the first new entry in the beloved adventure game series since 2009 (not counting some remakes).

The trailer, which you can see above, gives us our first look at franchise hero Guybrush Threepwood in the new game. It also reveals some familiar characters like Stan, Wally, and the Voodoo Lady. Also, Guybrush’s romantic interest, Elaine, looks to be playable for the first time.

Return to Monkey Island will have its console debut on Switch, but it’ll release for others later.
