Scalawags, sea barnacles and blaggards! It would seem that we have even longer to wait for Kaio: King of Pirates, the first brainchild of Keiji Inafune after he left Capcom and founded Comcept in 2011. I remember hearing about the game concept a while back, and being charmed by the design. I am admittedly a Mega Man/Inafune fanboy, so of course I was excited despite a lack of public information and gameplay ideas. Now it seems we’ll have to wait until sometime in 2014 (hopefully) for this 3DS title to come out. I am sure this is due in part to the upcoming release of Mighty No. 9, which is likely eating up a lot of Inafune-san’s attention. I can only hope this perky little penguin pirate is worth the wait! In the meantime, enjoy the official trailer of Kaio.

    It’s from the creator of Mega Man, the hero is a penguin, and it’s about pirates… WHY AM I JUST NOW HEARING ABOUT THIS!?

  • Vinicius

    Pirate Penguins! This is gonna be the best game ever.

    Hmmm… It looks like Romance of the Three Kingdom, pirate style… Can see that the penguin hero is Liu Bei, with his sworn brothers Guan Yu and Zhang Fei.

  • Mighty, this, and hopefully above all Soul Sacrifice 2. Well, other then Delta. Going to be a good year.

      Um, Mighty No. 9 isn’t going to be available until 2015.
