2K Games has announced that Sid Meier's Pirates! will be released for Wii this Autumn.
The game is being developed by 2K China and is seemingly based on the 2005 PC and Xbox title developed by Firaxis – itself a remake of the 1987 Sid Meier title.
For the Wii edition, 2K has added motion controls, new character and ship customisation options and two exclusive mini-games: Lock Picking and Bombardment.
We are big fans of the Wii and think Pirates! is the perfect game to bring to that platform,” said Sid Meier.
We're sure Wii fans will enjoy the timeless adventure of being a pirate captain on the high seas as much as all of our other fans have.”
