New pirate adventure game announced for the Wii

Capcom has just revealed in Japanese magazine Famitsu that they are releasing a brand new pirate-themed game for the Wii tentatively titled Treasure Island Z.

Directed by Eiichirou Sasaki (of Resident Evil: Outbreak, er, fame?), the game puts you in the role of a pirate in training as you use your Wiimote to search for treasure and solve puzzles. I wish real pirates had used Wiimotes to search for treasures and solve puzzles. That would have been awesome.

The graphics, although obviously “cartoony,” look pretty stylish and I am really digging the character design. Not much else is known about the title, but judging from the screens, it kind of looks to be a hybrid platformer/first person adventure.

Capcom knows how to make adventure games, so hopefully this will be one to watch.
