Forget Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure: there's a new contender on the block for "most adorable pirates".

Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune just unveiled the trailer for his new 3DS game, King of Pirates, and it's full of all the things we love about video games: action, pirates, penguins and an eagle holding a coffee mug.

The game's official website gives a brief English introduction: three warring races — Aves, Beasts and Scales — are searching for the lost Lucifer Coin, which grants the holder ultimate power to rule the ocean.

Inafune also leaves a message on the site, outlining his intentions for the game and closing simply "I will not disappoint you".

Here's the teaser trailer below. Try not to say "awww" too much.
