The blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is finally getting the LEGO treatment, Savy?
That’s what we’ve heard since Disney Interactive Studios and TT Games today announced that they are joining with The LEGO Group to bring Jack Sparrow and all his allies to life in virtual LEGO adventures with the upcoming LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game.
Slated to arrive in May 2011 to coincide with the release of the upcoming film, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” the video game installment will incorporate storylines, locations and characters from all the Pirates of the Caribbean mythology in LEGO form, “incorporating the humor of LEGO minifigures and fantastic worlds built from LEGO bricks and elements for players to explore. 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 cut scenes. 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 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.”
LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game will be released on the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, DS, PSP and PC on May of next year.
