Back in June of last year, developer Godzilab soft-launched their latest game Pirate Power. Taking cues from their previous games, Pirate Power featured a city-building aspect similar to their super popular Happy Street [Free], PvP pirate ship combat similar to their basketball-shooting game StarDunk [$2.99 / Free], and physics systems reminiscent of their hit physics puzzler iBlast Moki 2 [$2.99].

Now today, after nearly 6 months in soft-launch, Godzilab has announced a global release date for Pirate Power: next Thursday, January 21st.

Of course, once the game hits worldwide and gets an absolutely massive influx of new players, more tweaks and fixes are likely to come in the weeks and months following its release.
