Ryan North‘s To Be Or Not To Be is one of my all-time favorite books, and just to give you an idea of how serious that is, keep in mind that I also own a novel where Batman fights a car that’s possessed by a ghost. The Choose-Your-Own-Adventure-style take on Hamlet, built around that simple joke of the title, has an incredible sense of humor, an incredible roster of illustrators, and a brilliant use of the form that involves changing lead characters, a second choosable path adventure hidden within the first, and even a game of chess played against Queen Gertrude, and it’s been one of my go-to recommendations ever since it came out.

But if you were a Kickstarter backer for that original campaign, then you might remember that North promised a second Shakespeare-inspired game book. Now, we’ve finally got an announcement, and it looks like Romeo And/Or Juliet is set for release next June.

According to the announcement made through the TBONTB Kickstarter, the new book will feature a similar setup to the original, with character designs by Kate Beaton, and each ending featuring an illustration by a comic book artist. Here’s the full roster via the announcement:

 

It’s a pretty incredible list of talent, but I’m personally very pleasantly surprised by French cartoonist Boulet, who is one of the best creators around.

Romeo And/Or Juliet is set for release on June 7, 2016.
