Well, dang. Guybrush Threepwood is dead. Then again, there's always been ghosts, zombies, and demons in the Monkey Island universe so it all works out. Guybrush is just going to have to tough things out in a corporeal manner for the Tales of Monkey Island finale, Rise of the Pirate God.
If you haven't been keeping up with one of the best adventure games around, don't fret. Telltale has put together a "Season Trailer" featuring the trials of Guybrush Threepwood from the first four episodes of Tales, covering moments like accidentally spreading the pox of LeChuck, seeking out some voodoo to undo this unfortunate doodoo at La Esponja Grande, and his now-apparent death. Have a looksee:
So what's in store for our deceased Guybrush? Aside from dealing with his archnemesis LeChuck, there's a Crossroads boatman right at his gravestone ready to whisk away the spectral hero. Now, if you're curious on the matter of whether or not Guybrush is going to stay dead, you can find out when Rise of the Pirate God hits the PC and WiiWare on December 8. And remember to stay away from those carbonated drinks! It might just save your soul.
