Jack Sparrow and his fellow swashbucklers are about to become the latest movie characters to be immortalised in LEGO with the announcement by Disney Interactive Studios and TT Games that they are joining forces with the LEGO group to bring LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game, to the Wii and all the other major consoles. The game is due to be released to coincide with the release of the new film, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, in May 2011.
LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean will be based in the world of the globally successful film franchise, featuring storylines, locations and characters from the first three films, as well as the upcoming fourth film. The action, adventure and memorable moments of the Pirates of the Caribbean mythology will all be faithfully recreated, but in LEGO form, with typical LEGO humor that fans of the LEGO series of games will be so familiar with. Players will have the chance to take on the roles of more than 70 characters and experience the pirate adventure, irreverent humor and amazing creatures of the Pirates of the Caribbean films through action-adventure gameplay and hilariously quirky LEGO cut scenes. Throughout the game, you’ll also have the chance to explore environments from the movie series across more than 20 levels. Aside from the main story-driven mode, gameplay will also include a two-player co-operative mode, and a freeplay mode, where you get to return to levels to find new items.
“The action-packed world of Pirates of the Caribbean is a perfect fit for LEGO video games,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director of TT Games Publishing. “With so many wonderful characters, in such amazing environments, our teams are having great fun – and we’re sure that players will, too.”
