Leisure Suit Larry, the original guy, not his Magna Cum Laude
nephew, is back and he's gone mobile. Vivendi Games Mobile says that the first title won't be the original Land of the Lounge Lizards
, but Love for Sail
, which was actually the seventh installment in the series. Europeans can get it in June and the North Americans will have to wait till September.
"Larry fans worldwide have a strong allegiance to the classic Leisure
Suit Larry adventure game format, and we are delighted to be doing just that with the mobile version," said Paul Maglione, president of Vivendi Games Mobile. "We have kept the iconic Larry humor and attitude intact while adapting the graphics, language and controls for a mass-market, global audience."
It is funny to think back to the original 1987 (or 1991 remake) version of Leisure Suit Larry
in this era of insane parents
, government regulations
and the ESRB. The original Leisure Suit Larry
was the first time many of us learned about safe-sex practices. Remember kids, if you don't put a rubber on with a hooker your joystick will explode. That'll teach you!
