Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune's 3DS action-RPG about a pirate penguin, Kaio: King of Pirates, has been cancelled due to internal development-related difficulties and "sudden changes in the marketplace," reports Siliconera. Kaio was announced in late 2011, and was slated to come out, after a delay, in 2014.
Pirate penguins expected in 2014. Hey, remember that pirate game for the 3DS? The one with the penguins, from Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune, slated to arrive in 2012? Well, it didn't arrive in 2012. Or 2013. And now, its official website has been updated to show a Japan release date of 2014. Maybe someday!
Keiji Inafune, former Mega-Man producer and Dead Rising designer, is hard at work on a new title. It's called Kaio: King of Pirates and it's for the Nintendo 3DS. It stars a penguin pirate.
