... but I still like the old sprites much better than the new ones.

They're not as bad as the sprites in the first Monkey Island HD remake, but they aren't very good either. Too 'thin' and it just looks more like 'Kings Quest' instead of 'Monkey Island'.

Backgrounds seem to look good though.

I agree. The new graphics are really crisp and clean looking, but for some reason they just don't seem as appealing as the original graphics. I think it applies even more so for LeChuck's Revenge than for the original. The original's sprites were ultra-blocky and pixelated so the hi-def update was kind of cool, but the graphics in LeChuck's Revenge still hold up really well today, and I absolutely prefer the original style to these new shots.

I wish that we could turn on the new voice acting but keep the old graphics. In the first Special Edition it was either all new or all old, which was unfortunate. I'll still play through with the new graphics just to get to hear the new acting, though.

Or will this also be released on the EU PSN store?

I didn't see the second one released, just the first one. WTF?
