Set sail for 3D fun in LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean for 3DS

Published by Disney Interactive Studios and developed by TT Games, the Nintendo 3DS version will bring the LEGO Pirates world to life with vivid 3D in the palms of players’ hands. The game will include unique features such as “Pirate Duel,” a chance encounter system, as well as high resolution graphics and support for Play Coins.
“The swashbuckling and witty Pirates of the Caribbean universe is perfect for the breakthrough portable entertainment the Nintendo 3DS will deliver, ” said Adam Sussman, senior vice president of publishing, Disney Interactive Studios. “The 3D effects of the Nintendo 3DS lets players experience a LEGO game like never before, and allows us to add a new depth to Jack Sparrow’s world.”
LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game will re-create the action, adventure and memorable moments of the Pirates of the Caribbean mythology in LEGO form, incorporating the humour of LEGO minifigures and fantastic worlds built from LEGO bricks. Players can take on the roles of more than 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 of the 3D mode and play the game in standard 2D.
