Keiji Inafune Announces First 3DS Title

Pirates and penguins in the first real game from Inafune since he left Capcom.


Former Capcom development head Keiji Inafune still has some real game left in him! Following a few social game announcements and some still baffling collaborations with Compile Heart, Inafune is working on an honest-to-goodness 3DS title called "Kai-oh."

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.
