The game’s setting is in the Purribean, a colourful world inhabited by pirate cats, packed with treasures, and grim enemies. Similar to the previous entries in the series, players will embark on a new “cat’s quest,” exploring islands, conquering dungeons, and fighting enemies as they search for the legendary North Star. Naval warfare is the focus of part three of the game, allowing players to conduct their ships and attack enemies with cannons that use different types of ammunition.
