Pirates Plund-Arrr docks on Wii

The Nintendo Wii gets another kiddy title in the form of Pirates Plund-Arrr, which isn’t going to score points with the bunch of hardcore gamers out there, that’s for sure. Thanks to the efforts of Majesco (yes, the company that was more or less saved by the success of Cooking Mama on the Nintendo DS and started rolling out a bunch of shovelware for both the DS and Wii after that), Pirates Plund-Arrr for the Wii takes a different approach by introducing some degree of fun in a frantic beat-’em-up title, allowing you to hunt the high seas for the renegade captain Rudebelly who has gotten away with the Scepter of Power, and has performed the dastardly deed of unleashing an army of cursed dead, ghastly ghouls and menacing bosses onto the world.

In Pirates Plund-Arrr, players will fight through creature-filled areas like a murky swamp, an underwater city, and a haunted village to ultimately face-off against the scallywag Rudebelly and retrieve their stolen treasure. It’s serious business in a game that doesn’t take itself too seriously: would-be pirates can ride warthogs for “drive-by style” attacks, battle hulking slug bosses and trigger meat meteor showers raining down from above. These cute, but dangerous, swashbucklers will take on more than 40 diverse enemies – including skeletons, slimefish, mummies and lots of other nasties that want to ruin an otherwise pleasant Caribbean adventure. Good thing players have cool combo attacks and a bounty of weapons, from razor-sharp meat cleavers to flaming axes, to ensure that mowing down monsters never gets old! Players can also use the environment to their advantage by picking up rocks and barrels to hurl or simply snatching up the baddies themselves to toss them overboard. As players progress, they’ll gain XP points that will earn them perks and upgrades that will cause more damage to enemies. In addition, Pirates Plund-Arrr, lets 4 mates plunder together for co-op, beat-em action!

No idea on pricing, but we do know that Pirates Plund-Arrr for Wii will roll out this coming April. Hopefully they won’t have the wind knocked out of their sails with disappointing sales figures, this.
