A title that many might not be familiar with, Kaio: King Of Pirates suffered countless delays before it was ultimately cancelled. With intentions for a 3DS-only release along with manga and toys to accompany it, a four year life span was also to be expected. It has now come to light, thanks to Unseen64, that it cost an eye-watering $3.8 million to cancel. Not great news for Marvelous AQL who gained the rights to publish the title.

Before what we now know as Mighty No. 9, developer Keiji Inafune, Comcept and Intercept had started development on Nintendo 3DS exclusive Kaio: King of Pirates. Through Kickstarter, Inafune then, with mixed reviews, succeeded in gaining enough funds to develop Might No. 9 instead.
