Solatorobo GET!

So a possible contender for Game of the Year has arrived at my house today. The game is Solatorobo: Red the Hunter, a spiritual sequel to a game on the original PlayStation called “Tail Concerto”. Anyway, the game is said to be an action RPG I think? As of this writing I haven’t played it yet, currently I am listening to the awesome soundtrack that was included at no extra charge.

Thank you to XSEED Games who took it upon themselves to bring the game to North American gamers and for throwing in a cool bonus soundtrack CD. ❤

First print run of Solatorobo comes with a Soundtrack!

XSEED Games has today revealed that the first print run of the Nintendo DS game releasing on September 22nd will come with a 24 song soundtrack CD!

According to Xseed, the CD has a mix of playful tunes that match the game’s light-hearted dialogue (see picture on right) and an orchestral score for Solatorobo: Red the Hunter’s epic battles.

Solatorobo: Red the Hunter is due for release in North America on September 27th. The game has already been released in Europe as of July 1st.

I’m so excited for this game! I preordered it on Amazon a month or so ago when it was officially announced, and I am looking forward to listening to the soundtrack as well. Everyone do your part and pick up one of the very few last “hurrah’s” to come to the DS!

Solatorobo debut trailer!

I am so happy that Solatorobo is coming to the US. If it wasn’t revealed just recently, I would’ve already put in a preorder for the European version. Now I don’t have to do that, so I can support this games North American release. XSEED Games has a very good relationship with Namco Bandai, having released many of their games here. Thank you XSEED, keep up the good work! Now please give us Earth Seeker on the Wii next?

Solatorobo: Red the Hunter announced by XSEED Games!

Hey action RPG, dog, cat, mechs, and floating island lovers,

Today we are extremely excited to announce a partnership with Namco Bandai Games that will bring the highly-acclaimed Action RPG title Solatorobo: Red the Hunter to North America on the Nintendo DS™ handheld system.

Solatorobo (literally translated “sky and robot”) takes place in the Shepherd Republic, a series of floating islands that are populated by two distinct races of anthropomorphic dog- and cat-people. While very human-like in their nature, both of these races have evolved to use specially-built robot mechs (or Robos) in their everyday lives.

In the game, players follow the story of the dog-like Red Savarin, a young adventurer and hunter who has set off with his Robo companion Dahak on a quest to retrieve a stolen file of the utmost importance, only to be thrown into an altogether deeper adventure along the way. As the story of Solatorobo: Red the Hunter develops further, Red and Dahak will travel throughout the Shepherd Republic, meeting new characters and uncovering the truth behind a mystical artifact he has discovered.

Currently in production, Solatorobo: Red the Hunter will be released this fall in North America. We will be releasing more information in the coming months!

Solatorobo: Red the Hunter is rated pending by the ESRB. Visit for rating information.

Yay, I’m happy that the game is finally coming to North America, although I don’t know what the hold up would be. The game is due out in Europe on July 1st, so I bet it has something to do with XSEED’s schedule. Nintendo DS needs to keep going still, at least with localizations. Can’t wait to play this game, definitely gonna pick it up. I love the boxart too. ^_^
