Disney Interactive Studios and TT Games have announced the next swash-buckling entry into the Lego video game franchise: Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game (that’s one hell of a title). The game is being developed by TT Games, the masterminds behind all the other cute and cuddly Lego games like Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Harry Potter. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game will be releasing on nearly every video game console and handheld in existence, meaning you can pick up the title on Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, PC, PSP or DS. Furthermore, in a cross-promoting masterstroke, Lego Pirates will release alongside the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film, “On Stranger Tides,” in May 2011.
Lego Pirates of the Caribbean will include characters, settings and storylines from all four Pirates of the Caribbean films.
This is just place-holder box art. It will be different.
