For all you swashbuckling adventure fans you will soon be able to take your pirating exploits on the road… And we mean pirating of the high and mighty seas type, not the recent Crysis 2 and Killzone 3 type!
Pirates of the Caribbean will be taking full advantage of the 3DS’s handheld capabilities, even Street Pass, allowing players to cross swords in a new “Pirate Duel” mode that will operate reminiscent to the old Digimon styles. Players can choose from a series of attacks and blocks with the winner earning a number of in-game coins and experience points that will allow them to level up.
Adam Sussman, the Senior Vice President of Publishing at Disney Interactive Studios was excited about the prospects of the title saying;
“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, 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. “
