Capcom's new Wii title

Project Treasure Island Z.

Hoisting the mizzen-mast this afternoon is Capcom, who has announced a new pirate puzzle-adventure on Wii for release this autumn.

Project Treasure Island Z (working title) is a swashbuckling tale that puts you in the shoes of a young treasure-seeker called Zack. You happen to stumble upon the talking skull of Barabos himself, who promises to reveal the location of his vast treasure if you just help lift the pesky curse that's plaguing him.

It looks like we're in for a mini-game-type affair here, with various environments made up of stages you complete by solving puzzles. You'll experience things from various diverse places, such as jungles and ice temples, using the Wiimote in new and inventive ways to manipulate objects and pass increasingly difficult tests, like opening locks or playing the piccolo.

"Innovation has been the cornerstone of Capcom's successful history," said Michael Pattison, senior marketing director of Capcom Europe. "By introducing a whole new level of interactivity, this title reinforces our commitment to pushing the limits on how people view and play games."

Perhaps another game for Nintendo to file in its "expanding the market" folder.

Unfortunately Capcom was unavailable to fill us in on any more details.
