After leaving Capcom due to undisclosed issues (mostly to do with the stagnation of the Japanese gaming industry), Keiji Inafune remained mostly under the radar as his new companies Concept and Intercept seemed to be content with releasing social games and Inafune himself always being happy to lend himself to cameos in Hyperdimensional Neptunia Mk 2. This guise was abolished today with the announcement of Concept’s latest project: King of Pirates.
Inafune describes King of Pirates as an intended trilogy with over 300 characters that will be based of the classic Chinese novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms. While the game isn’t exactly the first game to be based of Romance of the Three Kingdoms, It is most likely the first one to involve pirates. The game is set for a release in Japan for the 3DS next year and a trailer can be found after the jump.
