KAIO: King of Pirates has been announced as a forthcoming release for Nintendo 3DS, which is garnering attention due to the fact that it is the first game from former Capcom development head Keiji Inafune since he left the company.
A collaboration between his recently formed Intercept studio and Marvelous AQL, which is a merged company comprising of Marvelous Entertainment, AQ Interactive and Liveware.
It is described as being an action-RPG that also includes multiplayer support, and will see a Japan release during 2012. As you can probably tell from its title, the game follows a pirate theme and features a cast of over 300 characters that comprise of penguins, cows, monkeys and dragons.
Inafune has explained that the game will have a high level of drama, and will touch upon themes of friendship and betrayal. Whilst the cartoon art style may seemingly appeal more to a younger audience, he hopes that adults will be able to enjoy it too.
