Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. today announced that Tropico 2: Pirate Cove for the PC has shipped. Published by Take-Two's Gathering label and developed by San Francisco based Frog City Software, Inc. in association with Take-Two's Pop Top Software studio, Tropico 2: Pirate Cove is now available in stores nationwide and will be available in Europe on April 25th.

"We look forward to another success with 'Tropico 2: Pirate Cove,'" said Kelly Sumner, president of Gathering. "When 'Tropico' first hit store shelves in 2001, it became a runaway bestseller. 'Tropico' fans loved the deep game play and sense of humor, and with Frog City’s pirate theme, we are able to carry on the 'Tropico' tradition."

About "Tropico 2: Pirate Cove"

As an all-powerful Pirate King, players must manage a seventeenth century band of buccaneers in "Tropico 2: Pirate Cove." To attract the most notorious of history’s sea-faring bad boys, Pirate Kings must keep their charges brave and well-supplied between voyages. The island’s "yo-ho-ho’s" must stay at a feverish pitch in order to keep the King’s buccaneers satisfied with drinking, wenching, gambling, feasting, and the best in pirate accommodations.

Success in "Tropico 2: Pirate Cove" depends on careful management of the pirate population. As dead men earn no plunder, the Pirate King must keep his pirates well equipped for potentially lethal missions. Sea dogs require muskets, cutlasses, cannons, and the skills to use them when they venture forth to plunder the Spanish Main. Pirates equipped with a parrot on their shoulders and a scary black hat are more likely to strike fear into their victims’ hearts.

About "Tropico"

The winner of several top industry accolades, the original "Tropico" is an island building simulation based on a remote 1950’s- era Caribbean paradise. As an all-powerful dictator, the player must create a life of prosperity and happiness for the island residents while secretly lining his own Swiss bank account. Playboy called "Tropico" "one of the finest and most dangerously addictive gaming experiences of the year," and Computer Games Magazine wrote that "Tropico" is "the perfect game to sit down with for a couple of hours, with a margarita in one hand and the mouse in the other."

Additional information about Tropico 2: Pirate Cove is available at the official Tropico 2 website.
