Inafune announces best ever 3DS game?

We were just about to give up on Keiji Infaune what with his social games and crazy theme park-set school girl RPGs, but now the legendary creator has announced a true 3DS game (via Andriasang) for us to look forward to, and it sounds fricking awesome.

Kai-Oh is the game’s name, which translates to Sea King. It’s an action RPG that puts you in the shoes/flippers of a penguin. Pirates will be involved in the plot somehow but we don’t know the specifics just yet. Now you know why we already need this one.

Set for release in 2012, the game is a joint-venture between Inafune’s new Intercept studio and Marvelous AQL. Fingers crossed we see this one too.
