Zoo Entertainment today announced that it will be releasing a new shooter-adventure game, Pirate Blast, this February on the Nintendo Wii. In Pirate Blast, players must defeat Captain Greasebeard and his evil robotic Henchbots who are determined to take over the Vile Isle amusement park. To avoid walking the plank and swimming with the fishes, players must destroy as many of the Captain’s Henchbots as they possibly can, and defeat Greasebeard in time for the park’s grand opening.



The game features eight chapters based in environments such as a village, a jungle, a pirate cove and pirate ships. Each chapter features new villains to defeat as players work their way towards the final battle against Greasebeard. Along the way, players can discover bonus rooms and collect booty stolen by the pirates, such as health kits and special keys to replenish health. The special edition blaster bundle brings even more excitement to battles against Greasebeard and his Henchbots as players target their enemies with rapid-fire precision. Here’s Mark Seremet, Zoo Games CEO, talking about the game:
“Pirate Blast delivers the action-packed adventure and ruthless villainy that pirates are known for in a humorous storyline that’s appropriate for all ages. When paired with the Blaster peripheral,*Pirate Blast offers an even more unique and accessible shooter game experience.”

Pirate Blast is due out for Wii in February 2011 for $19.99, with the special edition Pirate Blast bundle with blaster peripheral priced at $29.99.
