Disney Interactive Studios and TT Games have partnered with LEGO to produce a Pirates of the Caribbean video game. The title will hit retail in May 2011, coinciding with the film release of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game will feature the storylines, location and characters from the film franchise, and will incorporate LEGO mini figures and worlds built from LEGO bricks. It will be available for Wii, Nintendo DS, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable and Windows.
"Pirates of the Caribbean is a globally successful franchise based in action, adventure and humor perfectly suited for a LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game adaptation," says Graham Hopper, executive vice president and general manager of Disney Interactive Studios. "Combining the excitement of playing as Jack Sparrow and other recognizable characters from the franchise will make the game fun for players of all ages throughout the world."
In related news, Disney Consumer Products and LEGO will also release a collection of LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean constructions sets in spring 2011.
