Better late than never?

Remember KAIO: King of Pirates, the 3DS title developed by Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune? The last we heard, the game was looking good for a worldwide launch, but the proposed 2012 release date never materialised and the title has been considered MIA since then.

However, according to the official website, Inafune's "Pirate Action Adventure" has charted a new course: 2014. The site doesn't give anything more concrete than that, and continues to claim that the title isn't coming out of Japan — although that particular disclaimer is dated October 2011, so it's safe to assume it's no longer valid.

We're still super-keen to play this game, so let's just keep those fingers crossed that it does indeed set sail next year — and that a western release is still on the cards.
