'Sid Meier's Pirates!' (ALL) Officially Coming to the Wii - Screens

by Rainier on May 4, 2010 @ 9:45 a.m. PDT

In Pirates!, you are a 17th century Caribbean pirate captain trying to become the most revered and feared pirate in history - exploring high seas and exotic ports, overtaking enemies in fierce naval battles, engaging in duels and attempting to seize valuable booty.

Originally developed by Firaxis Games, the Wii version is being developed by 2K China and allows would-be buccaneers to serve as captain as they raid and plunder the 17th century Caribbean, successfully navigate pirate ship battles, triumphantly dispatch opponents in clanging sword fights and woo fair maidens with the streamlined controls of the Wii Remote in a quest to save their 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, director of creative development at Firaxis Games, and designer of the Sid Meier's Pirates! series. "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!”


Sid Meier’s Pirates! is an adventure-driven entertainment experience where swashbucklers can helm one of 27 fully customisable ships as they descend upon unsuspecting ports of call to assemble a motley crew of seafaring bandits. Captains will 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.

Overflowing with intense pirate action, Sid Meier’s Pirates! has a treasure chest of gameplay riches, including the traditional mini-games from the classic original such as Sword Fighting, Ship Combat and Dancing, as well as two Wii-exclusive mini-games – Bombardment and Lock Picking. In addition, the Wii version will offer exclusive character and ship customisation options.
