Classic swash-buckling action coming to Wii.
Being developed by 2K China, Sid Meier’s Pirates! will have streamlined controls for the Wii. The game will feature all of the action of being a 17th Century Caribbean Pirate as the player tries to save their family from the evil Marquis de la Montalban.
“We are big fans of the Wii and think Pirates! is the perfect game to bring to that platform,” said Sid Meier, director of creative development at Firaxis Games, and designer of the Sid Meier’s Pirates! series. “Weâ€™re sure Wii fans will enjoy the timeless adventure of being a pirate captain on the high seas as much as all of our other fans have!â€
Sid Meierâ€™s Pirates! is an adventure-driven entertainment experience where swashbucklers can helm one of 27 fully customisable ships as they descend upon unsuspecting ports of call to assemble a motley crew of seafaring bandits. Captains will collect secret treasure maps, undertake daring missions, play havoc with local townspeople and swiftly hand out pirate-style justice to local braggarts before setting sail for breathtaking open sea engagements unlike any other game before on the Wii.
Overflowing with intense pirate action, Sid Meierâ€™s Pirates! has a treasure chest of gameplay riches, including the traditional mini-games from the classic original such as Sword Fighting, Ship Combat and Dancing, as well as two Wii-exclusive mini-games â€“ Bombardment and Lock Picking. In addition, the Wii version will offer exclusive character and ship customisation options.
