Preceded by Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge

The Monkey Island Special Edition Collection (abbreviated as MISEC) is a retail release of the Special Editions of the first two Monkey Island games, being The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition and Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge, for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.[1] It was developed by LucasArts and was released on September 9, 2011 in Europe.[2] As well as all the features present in the previously released Special Editions, the disc contains never-before-released bonus materials, including concept art for the games, full-length remastered game soundtracks, and the storyboard and concept art for the Monkey Island movie that was in production at one point at ILM.

Special Features

Concept art

While MI2SE came with a concept art viewer, SMISE lacked this feature. With this retail release, that has been redressed - concept art from the first Special Edition is now viewable as well.


The disc contains the music that was especially composed by Jesse Harlin for the Special Editions. The soundtrack is only playable through the built-in launcher, but with the Monkey Island Music Extractor from Quick and Easy Software, the music tracks can be extracted as individual OGG files.

Monkey Island movie

Perhaps the most interesting bonus feature, the disc contains the never-before-seen storyboard from the cancelled Monkey Island movie, as well as concept art. This marks the first official confirmation (albeit indirectly) by LucasArts that such a project ever actually existed.
