TT Games "LEGO-fying" Pirates Of The Caribbean

You can say they're milking the franchise if you like, but most all of the installments are solid, stable and oodles 'o family-friendly fun for one or multiple players.

The Pirates of the Caribbean game has been canceled but if you're looking for solace, let it be known that TT Games is preparing its own patented Lego-fied version. The developer has already lent its lighthearted approach to the likes of Star Wars, Batman, Indiana Jones and Harry Potter, and now, it's time to go after yet another iconic movie franchise. Disney Interactive and TT Games have announced Lego Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game, which is in development for all major platforms, including the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable. Scheduled for release in May 2011, it's set to hit store shelves at the same time the new movie, "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," arrives in theaters. The Lego game will boast narrative elements, characters and locations from the first three film iterations, as well as "On Stranger Tides," so it should give fans everything they desire.

With 70 characters and 20 levels, along with that always popular co-op mode and the Freeplay mode (return to beaten levels and go through 'em again), this should be a great option for the younger age group.

Another great addition to the Lego game franchise. I wasn't aware of another Pirates of the Caribbean movie though. I would have thought they would have stopped at three. Oh well, a cash cow is a cash cow.

Yea me either!

You mean you didn't know there was a new movie? Theyve been filming late this year... It has to do with the fountain of youth. Can't wait for that either, love the movies.

Yea I love the movies too. I definitely went through withdrawal after the trilogy ended lol.

I knew they were planning something with the fountain of youth a while back (also there were rumors of Zac Effron being casted, thankfully he wasn't) but I thought that was long dead since I heard no other details about it until today.

Stinks that Bloom and Knightly aren't going to be in this :/
But at the same time we still have Depp :D

Needless to say this makes me really happy and I'm excited to see a new director at the helm.

The only thing that got me through those wretched movies was Knightley.

Knightley ? well if you were looking for some eye candy I can understand, but her character and the Orlando one were bwaring to watch.

Only watched this to lol at Sparrow epic antics, hope in the fourth movie without those two (thank god) he gets more screen time.

The Lego games are (were) fun, but with the last title (Indiana Jones, wasn't it?) it was too much "joy in repetition" (to quote Prince) for me. Nothing new at all, just same old with new "skins".

Hopefully they will introduce some new game mechanics, features, anything that makes it more than just "Lego Star Wars in Sparrow land".

they cancel the one game that had potential, and give this the go ahead?
oh dear lord!
the industry is turning into a bunch of kids games, soon were going to be up to our ears in these things!
honestly, how can you give armada of the damned which was a good 60% complete & looked really good & had the potential to be freaking awesome the trow back, and give this which has about 1/1000th the potential the green light?
its like sony canning 8 days and the getaway 3 for a stupid kids game with a stupid pet in it................. oh wait.

I can't believe there are people STILL harping on the cancellation of 8 Days. The Getaway I can understand, because it was an established entity with a proven track record, but 8 Days was nothing more than a proof-of-concept video, probably entirely pre-rendered, and has since been trumped by dozens of games WE HAVE ACTUALLY GOTTEN, like Uncharted and inFAMOUS.
