Marvelous AQL hasn’t said much about Kaio: King of Pirates after announcing their partnership with Comcept CEO Keiji Inafune.


Kaio: King of Pirates takes place in the high seas where anthropomorphic characters fight each other for the Lucifer Coin. Whoever finds it rules the ocean and becomes Kaio, the King of Pirates. Three different races the Aves, Beasts, and Scales are battling for the power to become Kaio in this Nintendo 3DS game.


Kaio: King of Pirates wasn’t at Tokyo Game Show, but it will be at Jump Festa and it’s playable. Marvelous AQL have Kaio: King of Pirates slated for 2013.

    I heard it was initially coming out as a manga before the game right? I wanna read it.

  • almostautumn

    The trailer was terrific, but I am definitely looking forward to seeing what the actual gameplay is like. Definitely sounds like a very unique title.

    The blue bomber lives (in penguin form)!

  • Finally. I was beginning to get worried for a bit. With my hope renewed, I’m looking forward to some gameplay videos at Jump Festa!

  • Jonattas F.

    They forgot to put the DreamWorks logo on the picture XD…

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    anyone else forgot about this game?

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Finally, Inafking. I am starting to forget this game lol.^_^

  • noctis_nox

    Kinda reminds me of Dragon quest for some reason.

  • The all animal cast reminds me of Tai Fu, damn Tai Fu now that was a game~

  • hiroshroom

    Feels like one piece mixed with romance of the three kingdom in animal forms..

  • SLick123456789111

    Looking forward to the gameplay specifically.

  • Elvick

    Good, I was wondering about this game. Since Inafune’s working on other projects with both his studios I was worried this might have been cancelled.

    Looking forward to seeing some gameplay. Hopefully they tweaked the animation of the cutscenes, they were a little odd before. I mean, beautiful, but something was odd about them.

  • Cameron Ward

    finally some news of this game

  • HassanJamal

    Sorry lil penguin but the only pirate king will be Luffy!

  • isfuturebright

    I wonder how this will play… I sense it will be action RPG like… Does anyone have a clue? 

  • Thuggin Love

    This looks like Dynasty warriors,the big guys on the boat look like Guan Yu and Zhang Fei.

  • YES

  • Göran Isacson

    So Dynasty Warriors, except Wu, Shu and Wei are populated by reptile-people, bird-people and mammal-people? I can dig that set-up…

    Or wait, it seems like the kingdoms have mixed people from all races. Guess that’s one way to evade unfortunate implications.

  • I, along with a horde of others, am looking forward to some gameplay videos. Everything looks good so far, though.

  • Pichi

    Need to see some gameplay videos. Curious what genre this game is.
