    Its not currently out for even closed beta, but will be soon. I encourage you to if you plan on playing it, registering and getting on the list for closed beta. Chances may still be high since it was only announced earlier today.

    It you play Wizard101 you may notice some 'borrowed' characters, and designs. Since it is the same developing company I can't blame them for using their previous characters. This is only their second game, and may be more to come.

    Now that you say that.... It kinda does xD

    Just because it's by the same company doesnt mean it will be the same. POTCO and ToonTown arent even close. FreeRealms and POTBS? Don't even get started.

    I believe the graphics and overall artwork will be similiar, as will the currency of 'crowns'. I doubt it will be at a pirate school and have the same card style fighting but I'm not sure.

    Look at the graphics, charaters, NPCs, even the site and tell me they aren't gonna be the same... doubt it.

    To answer some of the questions floating around above.....

    • Game population will be high when out to the public A good 20 million have/do play/ed Wizard101
    • KingsIsle does share some graphics and things between these games
    • The fighting style will be different. They developed a new fighting system for this game https://www.pirate101.com/free_game/combat
    • As for similarity, I think they will be smally related in story line. It will most likely make more sense if you have in dept knowledge of Wizard101. Pirate101 after all is placed around the 'Spiral'

    hopefully it doesn't change fast like POTCO did and they actually listen to you. Graphics aren't all that to a game guys, its the people, gameplay, and support for me!
