Capcom Reveals Project Treasure Island Z

Today Capcom has officially announced its first all-original game project in development exclusively for the Nintendo Wii tentatively titled Project Treasure Island Z. Designed to utilize the innovative motion-sensing controls of the Wii-mote, Project Treasure Island Z is a unique puzzle adventure game that will have players exploring environments, interacting with the world around them and solving puzzles as a young pirate-in-training named Zack. On the hunt for Barbaros’s legendary treasures with the main goal to become the greatest pirate in the world, players will use the Wii-mote to push and pull objects, open doors, rotate handles, play a piccolo and more.

“Innovation has been the cornerstone of Capcom’s successful history,” said Charles Bellfield, vice president, marketing, Capcom Entertainment.  “By introducing a whole new level of interactivity, this title reinforces our commitment to pushing the limits on how people view and play games.”

That’s the extent of what has been revealed about Project Treasure Island Z at this time, however Capcom has released a pair of screenshots with today’s announcement, which I have posted below. Project Treasure Island Z is scheduled to release this fall.
