Keiji Inafune....King of Pirates!

So this looks..AWESOME!  I gotta say I am excited for this.  Says its a Pirate action adventure game, so I am curious to see how it turns out.  I almost get a sort of..zelda-esque vibe from the trailer, even though it didn't show any gameplay or anything, so thats pure conjecture from me.  Still I cannot wait!

Just a cinematic trailer right now, so dunno how to feel myself.

There's a...really subtle Three Kingdoms influence on this work. I'm not sure how well this is going to mesh with cuddly anthropomorphic characters. I think there's a bit of a problem out of dock (hur hur) with who the target audience is supposed to be. On the one hand, I get Kung Fu Panda children's story feeling from this, which isn't a problem...but he's mixing it with Three Kingdoms influences and a theme of the importance of power over morality in times of war.

Oh well, it COULD work, I suppose.

There's nothing subtle about it.  It's quite blatant.

I was being sarcastic, figured that'd be obvious since the first thing you see in the trailer is the two trademark beards and weapons of the younger brothers.

Also they're named Choby and Ukhan. Seriously. It's like if I made a fantasy game based off of Lord of the Rings and I decided to make the two leads a pair of midgets named Phrodo and Zamwise.

Sorry, it's hard to pick up sarcasm in text.

I really like the art style, it looks like claymation.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.
