Disney has announced that it is bringing its money making awesome franchise Pirates of the Caribbean to Lego in 2011. With the Lego games achieving success on consoles lately, it isn’t a surprise that Disney decided to put these big heavyweight together. Disney had this to say about the new friendship.
LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game will re-create the action, adventure and memorable moments of 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.
After playing Lego: Rock Band and Lego: Harry Potter myself, and enjoying both, this doesn’t sound too shabby. Johnny Depp better be included or else I’m just gonna melt of sadness. LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game coming May 2011.
