Inafune's pirate action adventure still en route to 3DS.

KAIO: King of Pirates, Marvelous AQL and Comcept’s Keiji Inafune-led 3DS pirate action adventure game, will now launch in 2014, a date change on the game’s official website reveals.

The game, announced in 2011, was originally planned for release in 2012. It was then pushed to 2013. And, well, you know how that turned out.

  • Wolf Star

    I forgot about this game like litterely.

    • Watahashi

      Was going to post exactly this. I totally forgot King of Pirates was a thing.

      • Wolf Star

        Yeah, I have forgotten about the name and everything until now haha :) woow since 2011 huh? It’s been a while :)

  • MrFinalgamer

    i honestly thought this was canned, especially with Inafune working on Soul Sacrifice, and now Mighty No. 9. hope to see some gameplay soon enough (there better be some if the game is being released next year and has been in development for like 2 years)

      The games you mentioned are produced by Comcept. Kaio is going to be the first game developed by Intercept, Inafune’s new development studio.

      IIRC they wanted to launch a CG TV show alongside the game, so it’s probably delays on that end slipping into the game.

  • Alkhan

    Still no gameplay.

  • Kobracon

    Oh yay, I thought this game was dead!

  • Eder García

      my thoughts exactly strange fusion of Spike Spiegal and Hank Hill.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Strange? I’m perfectly normal, I tell you what.

        • Warboss Aohd

          Sure you are, so are you gonna go Bounty Hunting and then go grill with propane and propane accessories?

          • Anime10121

            Better, he goes bounty hunting with propane coated grenades and explosives :)

          • Solomon_Kano

            Cleanest burning bounty hunter on the planet, I tell you what.

  • Warboss Aohd

    hopefully this will be the last push back.

    i’m really wanting to get my hands on this game.

  • Anime10121

    Great! I really wanna see how this has come along after all this time!

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    this game looks cool. I hope we see more in the near future. update us when you find out more, please.

  • DarkLegacy

    This game looks good. I’ll definitely get this, since it does look good

  • Elvick

    Hope they improved the art design since, it looks good but a little ‘off’ overall.

    And I won’t be surprised if it’s delayed again.
