Virgin Interactive have sent us the very latest screens of Galleon, their swashbuckle-em-up on the Gamecube.

Galleon sees you playing as Rhama, Captain of the streamlined clipper Endeavour, and exploring uncharted oceans and battle your way with the natives on each island that you come across.

The game is being developed by Toby Gard and Paul Douglas, who were responsible for the creation of Lara Croft character, and are hoping that Galleon will prove just as popular, with it's vast worlds and an all new animation system which allows the characters a large number of fluid realistic actions and movements.

Because of the proprietary animation system in use, Rhama is able to run, leap, climb, swim and swing his way through the adventure, and interact with the other characters in the game including Pirates, and Slave Traders, where he's faced with battles and sword fights.

Galleon will set sail on to the Gamecube's high seas later this year.
