LEGO Pirates uses music from axed Armada of the Damned

Where do video games go when they die? According to Disney Interactive, they get reborn, sort of, inside other, more popular games.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damed

This is the case for Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned, anyway. The game was axed by Disney late last year, immediately prior to the closing of Propaganda Games.

It looks like all of the studio’s work wasn’t for naught, however, as John Vignocchi (Disney Interactive Studios development director) has tweeted, all of the music from Armada of the Damned has now popped up, along 15 tunes from the films, in the soundtrack to LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean.

So it’s not quite the Pirates game we were expecting, the blocky interpretation falling somewhat short of the action-RPG Armada was shaping up to be, but at least the game’s found a new life – of sorts – rather than being condemned to Davy Jones’ Locker.

Keep an ear out, and you can hear D’toid‘s cries of glee throughout the game, too!
