The Grauniad caught up with Monkey Island Special Edition producer, Craig Derrick who teased that the up-until-now-Xbox-Live-and-PC-only title could be heading to PlayStation 3 and Wii. Derrick hinted further that the game would be heading to a new, unannounced platform.

Why Xbox Live and not Wiiware or PSN?

Well, we never said we wouldn’t be on Wiiware or PSN now did we? The truth is, though, Xbox Live offers a great user experience and downloadable service to gamers and we think it’s a great platform to launch the game on. And, of course, the game will also be available on PC via digital download, plus we may have another platform announcement to make very, very soon

Our guess would be a handheld. We’re really clever like that.
