Bad news, landlubbers: It looks like Keiji Inafune's Kaio: King of Pirates won't hit the 3DS until next year. The game's official website includes both English- and Japanese-language versions of its text, and as you can see at the bottom-right of the page, the game's release window has changed to a firm 2014.

Unfortunately, waiting for Inafune's cutesy pirate adventure is nothing new for fans. We first reported on Kaio: King of Pirates in 2011, at which time it was supposed to hit the 3DS in 2012. Obviously, that never happened, and almost nothing has been said of why the game has been in development for all these years.
