Blondes may have more fun, but from the looks of the first trailer for Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle, brunette female pirates can have a pretty good time, too.
This spin-off title from So Blonde is once again written by Steven Ince but this time stars Morgane Castillo, telling the tale of "the young daughter of the renowned Pirate Alessandro Castillo and how she grows up to become the most fearsome pirate of the Caribbean and her exciting journey to discover the mysterious treasure of the Golden Turtle."
The first trailer introduces the young Morgane as she undertakes her first tasks in becoming a ship captain. Finding both a crew and cargo to transport naturally involves plenty of swordfighting, kicking, and head-butting, and the adventure really escalates when the merchant Thomas Briscoe charters her boat to search for a legendary golden artifact he's been obsessed with for a decade.
Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle is currently in cross-platform development for PC, PlayStation 3, Wii and DS. No firm release date has yet been revealed, but the game is due for launch some time later this year. Stay tuned for more about this game in the coming weeks, as Adventure Gamers reports our first-hand impressions from the recent gamescom.
