LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game sets sail onto Nintendo 3DS
Disney Interactive Studios have today announced that they are to release a Nintendo 3DS version of TT Games’ upcoming LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game. The Nintendo 3DS iteration of the game is set to include a unique “Pirate Duel” feature, alongside support for Play Coins.
“The Nintendo 3DS lets players experience a LEGO game like never before, and allows us to add new depth to the Pirates of the Caribbean universe,” said Adam Sussman, senior vice president of publishing, Disney Interactive Studios. “The game incorporates new features such as the Pirate Duel system and high resolution 3D effects to deliver fun and clever gameplay fans of the LEGO series expect. ”
LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game is set to re-create the action, adventure and memorable moments of the Pirates of the Caribbean mythology in LEGO form. Players will be able to assume the roles of over 70 characters and experience the pirate adventures, irreverent humour and amazing creatures of the Pirates of the Caribbean films through action-adventure gameplay and hilariously quirky LEGO cut scenes. Throughout the game, players will also have the freedom to explore environments from the highly acclaimed movie series.
The Nintendo 3DS “Pirate Duel” mode allows players to cross swords with nearby Nintendo 3DS owners using the Street Pass feature. With Street Pass, the Nintendo 3DS can automatically detect and communicate with other Nintendo 3DS devices. When an encounter with another Nintendo 3DS is initiated, “Pirate Duel” pits the players against each other in a battle where they will select from a series of attacks and blocks to be utilized by their LEGO pirates.
Players can participate in duels to earn Play Coins that will unlock and allow them to use new characters. By winning duels, players can also gain experience points, allowing them to move up the ranks and gain new rewards including extra health, new moves, new titles and extra characters. Players of the 3DS version will have the ability to turn off the 3D mode and play the game in standard 2D.
