Walt Disney World has release a new video offering a glimpse at A Pirate's Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas, the new interactive game that will debut at the Magic Kingdom later this spring.

The video, embedded below, features footage of some of the special effects that will feature in the game. It is hosted by Disney Imagineers Jonathan Ackley and Matt Beiler, part of the team behind A Pirate's Adventure.

The game will be hosted in Adventureland, and will challenge guests to complete five distinct "pirate raids" around the area. Players will be equipped with a pirate map and a "magic talisman", and will aim to locate several different Treasures of the Seven Seas. The plot will tie-in with the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, and will feature characters including Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa.

As with many of Disney's most recent additions as part of its NextGen programme, A Pirate's Adventure is expected to make extensive use of RFID short-range radio technology. This will be used to trigger special effects hidden around Adventureland, including a variety of animatronic creatures.

Walt Disney World already offers several similar interactive experiences. This includes Phineas & Ferb: Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure at Epcot, and Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, which debuted in September 2011. The resort recently announced another game for Disney's Animal Kingom, based on the Wilderness Explorers organisation seen in Pixar's Up.
