Pirates of the Caribbean 10 Jul, 2002, 08:55 / 4 comments

According to a press release on XBoxAddict.com, TDK and Disney will create a new video game based on the popular Disney ride, Pirates of the Caribbean. LucasArts will probably not be involved, so why would would you possibly be interested? Because Pirates of the Caribbean was the major inspiration behind the Monkey Island series, so it will be interesting to see how the two games compare. Here's a quote from the press release:
"We are pleased to be bringing these incredible Disney theme park attractions to life in the world of interactive games," said Vincent Bitetti, chief executive officer, TDK Mediactive. "As we look to 2003 and beyond to be the `sweet spot? for our industry, `Haunted Mansion? and `Pirates of the Caribbean? theatrical releases will be incredible events with which to launch the game titles on a worldwide basis."
I suppose this may mean that the game will directly tie into the theatrical film we reported about in June and indirectly on the actual ride. Thanks to Scummbuddy for the news!

    Unless Big Whoop is involved, I'm not interested.
