There's a whole load of treasure to be seen in a series of swanky new videos from Capcom's quirky adventure, Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure.

Thanks to Linkyshinks for the tip.

The game looks fantastic, love the music and the atmosphere. I simply cannot wait for this one, it looks like a classic that the Wii will be rememberd for. {LS]

I have NoScript installed on Firefox (which I use at work. Opera at home), so I only got red boxes when I do not allow them. So now I have eight boxes on this site here. I am afraid, that I sneak peak the entire game when watching all these videos. So I do not, as I want to solve the puzzles myself. Almost like last year when all these Twilight Princess videos where floating around. I resisted! *grin*

I find your lack of faith disturbing!

Nothing to really fear in watching those vids, there is no spoilerific footage*, but what you do see is brilliant and the mark of quality from Capcom. You should go onto their site and watch the vids there if possible. [IGN]

I expect they will be posting more vids within the coming days also, they seem to have the bulk of the info on this game..{LS]-


August 7, 2007 - *Capcom doesn't want us to show you any screenshot or movie spoilers for its upcoming Wii adventure title, Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure.

We can understand why - this is a game, after all, whose main challenge is simply to figure out the method to completing each of its many stages, all of them presenting unique hurdles. As much as we've maintained that it would be worth sacrificing a single level in order to demonstrate just how clever and rewarding the adventure is, the studio isn't having it*. But it has at least let us pull back the curtain, even if just a little bit, to show you some direct-feed movies and screenshots taken directly from some of the puzzle-heavy environments that Z&W traverse in search of treasure.

Today, we've posted almost 20 new screenshots and four new movies, all in 480p, for your viewing pleasure[^]. Obviously, none of the media contains spoilers, so if you're been airing on the side of caution in an attempt to avoid accidental revelations, you needn't worry. Nothing you will see today will illuminate any of the puzzles - these videos only take you into the levels for a look around.

All of the media showcases four different levels from the newest demo of Z&W, sent to IGN Wii earlier today. We've played these levels before, and we've written about them. In addition to an in-game tutorial, which is featured almost in full in our media section already, there are three stages set in the stylistic Jungle Ruins and one in Barbaros' Castle.


The only relatively new stage is called the Flute of the Growlin' Goblins, and it is also the only stage that we're unable to take any videos or screens from. In it, Z&W must figure out a means to attain a treasure chest which rests on top of a pillar in the middle of a circular arena. Below it, a group of fanged cannibalistic tribals - as pictured in our top story image - guard the platform, but periodically eat from a giant pot of stew. Without giving the order away, you must do everything from stun a snake to devise a sleeping potion, knock down some coconuts and turn a crank as you ride a vehicular platform, in order to finally make it through. As always, the visual presentation, filled with over-the-top characters and a host of stunning particle and lighting effects, is second to none.

hmmm, now it says I need to install a plugin, yet LS's videos work fine. What happened?
