Journalist and E3 Coliseum head Geoff Keighley has announced a Grim Fandango anniversary event to take place in L.A. this June.

The celebration of the game's 20th anniversary includes live music, a live read from the game script with the original cast, creator and recent GDC lifetime achievement award recipient Tim Schafer, and more. The event will be broadcast live from the E3 Coliseum, the on-stage and backstage E3 show focusing on panels and interviews.

Keighley revealed the event in a tweet today and promised more surprises to come.

 

Our Take
Grim Fandango has been a cult-classic for two decades now, so I imagine there's a lot of pent up desire to really outwardly celebrate the things that game did to define what narrative adventures would look like for the next twenty years.
