Default Keiji Inafune's new 3DS game: King of Pirates [CANCELLED]

Here's Keiji Inafune's first 3DS game since he left Capcom.



















From Andriasang,

Quote:
Kai-oh is an action RPG with multiplayer support. The kanji for the name translates to "Sea King." The game does have a pirate theme, but you apparently play as a penguin. A release is planned for 2012

The game is being developed as a collaboration between Inafune's new Intercept studio and Marvelous AQL, the newly formed merged company comprised of Marvelous Entertainment, AQ Interactive and Liveware.

The announcement of Kai-oh came at a press conference that Marvelous AQL is currently holding to commemorate its merger. We'll hopefully get additional details shortly.

---

Famitsu.com has posted first images of King of Pirates, the new 3DS title from Keiji Inafune that we wrote about earlier under its Japanese name, Kai-oh.

The site reports that King of Pirates will have a pirate theme, but will follow the Sangokushi story. The game wil have over 300 characters.

Visit Famitsu.com's story for additional artwork.

The only thing that keeps me away from the game is that the main characters are animals. But hey, it still looks good.

Do you really want to know? Anywho, as Keiji Inafune's first game after Capcom I was expecting something more westernized given what he's said in the past. Instead we got Asian looking pirates and a penguin. Oh well, still looking forward to this.

Someone has obviously never seen Kung Fu Panda.

Seriously though Jack Black could be a great voice actor for something like this. It looks like Kung Fu Panda meets One Piece.

Anyways, would have to see what it's about and all that.

The bald eagle doesnt have an Asian pirate design.

I'm also getting a one piece with abimals vibe....

But I'm not sold yet... I dont know if its the art style.... boob cat..... The eternally angry faced yet obnoxiously cute main character...
.....
Oh I know what's bothering me. No gameplay vids or even screens. Just devkit bullshots of cutscenes.

Ill keep an eye on this to see how it plays and looks during the actual game.

This certainly looks interesting, the only things that threw me off were the lion guy and penguin's voices, but I could get used to that. It's something that I want to keep my eyes on.

By the way did anyone else notice one of the pirates in the montage had meat-cleavers, just something you don't see normally in...well anything outside a butcher shop.

lol, I thought this was going to be a One Piece game for a second. It kinda gives me a One Piece x Thundercats vibe. Which is awesome.

Oh man, this game feels so Asian.
I like.

I can't help but think there's this underlying badassery to the whole game.

Nothing's wrong with him. He's just made a game that will target a set audience.

He went from robots designed like animals to actual animals. Why so hung up on this? Will it magically make the game better if the character models are replaced by people?

for a game aimed at a younger audience, it sure is violent O.o

anyway, im not a fan of animal characters but i'll wait to see gameplay for this. i love action rpgs and (since Radiata Stories) 300 characters is awesome! i love variety in teammates. I hope this plays well.

it would also be interesting if it turned out to look like a reskinned MML3 haha....

Capcom would be like "RAGE!" and Keiji will be like "NO! RAGE U!"

I'm going to resurrect this ancient thread to inform you all...

The game isn't dead yet.

I wonder how far the game is into development and when it might release outside of Japan (I do recall Inafune mentioning that the game would be localised).

The article was from April. Still haven't heard a thing since.

It sounds to me like the game is going to bomb hard. A CGI trailer, promises of a trilogy and a worldwide release, then nothing for two years. That's not really how you build hype for a new IP and an intended trilogy. To be quite honest, I was really looking forward it, but I care less and less as time goes by. Better blow some minds when they finally show it.

I can't get interested is a game that has nothing to show but a cinematic trailer. I thought Soul Sacrifice was terrible, so I'm not optimistic. I really wanted to like it so I would have something to use my vita for. The comparisons of SS vs MH are wrong!

Eh... I kind of forgot this existed. I'm pretty neutral towards its development. I mean, I guess I'd be happy if they released it, but at this point I'd much rather have a 3DS version of Mighty No. 9.

Well, it looks like the long-awaited (by me, anyway) Airace: Spe3d is finally coming to the 3DS, beating either of these fellow titles also announced back in 2011.

"According to Inafune, the situation is out of his hands. Publisher Marvelous has not announced a strategy for the game, thus any inquiries concerning Kaio would have to go through them."

It kinda sounds to me like the game is actually finished now.

Nearly four years later and nearly four million dollars invested, the project has been cancelled. At least Rodea is finally going to see the light of day.

Ugh. Super disappointing.

What the heck did they spend all that money on?
