To unlock the “Monkey Island Shanty,” you must complete all 43 commendations in The Legend of Monkey Island Tall Tales.
You will unlock most commendations by simply playing through the Tall Tales since they are unmissable and story-related. However, a fair amount of them require you to go out of your way to seek them out.
Unlike the Shores of Gold Tall Tales, it is possible to complete every Tall Tale in the series just once and earn every commendation for it.
Once you complete every commendation in The Legend of Monkey Island, the ‘Monkey Island Shanty’ will automatically be added to your Shanties Radial. You will not need to purchase it.
Below, you will find complete walkthroughs of each Tall Tale. The walkthroughs will show you how to finish each Tall Tale and unlock every commendation for it.
You will also find journal guides to accompany the Tall Tale guides that will show you the exact location of every journal for each Tall Tale.
If you want to complete a commendation you missed during your initial playthrough, we will link to individual commendation guides.
