2K announces Sid Meier’s Pirates! for Wii


2K Games has announced that Sid Meier’s Pirates!, the classic swashbuckling high-seas adventure, will land on Wii this fall.

For those who've never played the game, it allows you to play captain as you raid and plunder 17th century Caribbean oceans, fight with swords, and participate in ship battles, all just to save your 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. "We’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.”

The game has 27 customizable ships, allows you to 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".

Sounds amazing.

The game will contain all you are familiar with, as well as Wii-exclusive mini-games – Bombardment and Lock Picking. In addition, the Wii version will offer exclusive character and ship customization options.

Sounds like a grog-filled good time for all.
