Confused? So are we. Inafune is nothing if not outspoken, most recently slamming the blame culture that he perceives exists when Eastern and Western developers start working together. However, the ex-Capcom man has announce his first full game since leaving the Japanese giant, we're not counting Dr. Momo's Island, and it is to a 3DS game named Kai-oh.
Andriasang reports that the title translates from kanji to mean 'Sea God' and will be an action RPG that apparently has a piratical theme...but sees you playing as a penguin. It looks like it'll be out in Japan at least in 2012.
The game is being developed in conjunction with Marvelous AQL - a new company formed from Harvest Moon developers Marvelous Entertainment, AQ Interactive and Liveware - and that the announcement was made at a press conference called to celebrate the triple merger.
