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.



Naw, was looking forward to this. More games need to feature pirate Penguins. Sounded like a cool idea. I guess it's for the best, would rather it not come out at all if it wasn't going all that well, and then have it get low scores.

I still want more games with animals in them as protagonists. If anyone knows of any.. tell me! (weird request)
