Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat is an action-adventure game with ship combat and Zelda-like exploration mechanics. One of the last games developed by Westwood Studios before being dissolved by EA, it features pirate captain Katarina de Leon, the Black Kat, as she explores the five seas on a quest to avenge her parents' deaths at the hands of a warlord named Hawke.

Its working title was Pirates of Skull Cove, referring to the location of the final boss fight.
