Sid Meier's Pirates terrorizing Wii Oct. 5
Take-Two and Firaxis' acclaimed strategy game on the Spanish main setting sail for Nintendo's console in two months.
The big holiday release from Take-Two and its recently downsized Firaxis studio is set to be Civilization V, which Sid Meier's studio is expected to release for the PC on September 21. However, that won't be the only product from the studio this fall, as Take-Two confirmed today that Sid Meier's Pirates will arrive for the Wii on October 5.
Pirates on the Wii is in development at 2K China, and just like Firaxis' original, it sees gamers taking the helm of a 17th-century vessel to conquer the Caribbean. Gamers can take the wheel of 27 customizable ships as part of their mission to rid the Spanish main of the nefarious Marquis de la Montalban. All the while, gamers will collect treasure, explore the open seas, and engage in wanton acts of piracy.
In addition to letting you battle pirates and colonial powers using the Wii Remote, the game incorporates a variety of minigames, ranging from swashbuckling sword fights to wooing the governor's daughter through dance. 2K China has included two Wii-specific minigames--bombardment and lock-picking--as well as other exclusive character and ship-customization options.
