So it seems as though Disney Interactive Studios isn’t quite done with retail just yet, as the publisher recently announced a new addition to the ‘LEGO’ series of adventure games, LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game.
Set to star Captain Jack Sparrow and other characters from the Disney property and series of movies, LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean is currently in development at TT Games (LEGO Batman, LEGO Harry Potter et al) and will become available for Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PSP, DS and PC just in time for the fourth ‘Pirates’ movie in May, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.’
The game will be based on the world ultimately made famous by the film franchise, and will make use of storylines, locations and characters from the first three films (‘The Curse of the Black Pearl,’ ‘Dead Man’s Chest’ and ‘At World’s End’), as well as the fourth announced movie, On Stranger Tides.
Of course, the events and characters of these movies will be recreated in LEGO form, which means you can expect the usual great humour and brick-based gameplay you’ve come to expect from previous LEGO games.
Here’s a quick feature blurb:
“Players can 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 cutscenes.
“Throughout the game, players will also have the freedom to explore environments from the highly acclaimed movie series in more than 20 levels. The game features two-player cooperative mode, in which players each control a character to experience the story together, and freeplay mode, which lets players return to levels to discover new items.”
The press release reminds us that a collection of LEGO branded Pirates of the Caribbean construction sets will also become available in time for the release of the game and the movie, so you’ll be able to gorge yourself on all things ‘Pirates’ this May!
While you get yourself ready for all of that goodness, you can look over the rest of the released screenshots for LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game, as well as a great teaser trailer for the title below:
